An energy audit from Daisy Energy can help your company identify a wide range of energy saving solutions to help you be more eco-conscious and cost-efficient.
The following are just a few areas where we can help you reduce your energy usage:
- Avoiding peak energy times
In Ontario, the cost of energy varies based on time of use. By reorganizing your shifts and adjusting the times when certain machines are used, you may be able to save money by avoiding peak periods.
Bringing more natural light into your workspace helps to reduce the need for electric lights. This can be done through adding more windows or skylights. Adding north-facing windows is a great way to bring in more light with very little added unwanted heat.
- Energy Efficient Lighting and Lighting Controls
LEDs use as much as 85% less energy than other types of lighting. To reduce your usage even further, you can consider lighting controls such as dimmers, motion sensor and occupancy sensors.
- Building recommissioning
This is a system of regularly analyzing and optimizing performance of current building systems such as HVAC and chillers. By keeping these systems at peak performance, you may save as much as 15% on your annual energy costs.
- Reduce load on HVAC system
Heating and cooling your workspace can use a lot of energy. Make sure that energy is not wasted by changing filters, ensuring that vents are not blocked and having properly sealed windows and doors.
- Service compressors and motors
Keep this equipment operating at its peak by ensuring that leaks are fixed, addressing pressure issues and performing regular maintenance.
- Turn off equipment that is not in use
This may sound obvious, but we are all human and it can be easy to forget. To help with this use tools motion sensors and auto off power bars.
- Involve employees in energy saving efforts
Energy saving works best when everybody is on board. Get your employees involved by providing educational materials and workshops, developing an energy-savings plan or even holding contests for the best energy saving ideas.
