What Our Energy Audit Identifies

Auditing your energy consumption can be done in a variety of ways. During a professional energy audit, our expert team will fully assess the consumption patterns of your:

  • Heating and cooling
  • Hot water system
  • Electrical appliances
  • Fridges and freezers
  • Kitchen appliances
  • Lighting.

Some energy audit devices can measure the rate your energy is consumed – noting how many kW you’re using at that given moment. But our professional energy audit services go beyond what DIY gadgets can manage.

Our comprehensive energy audit will help identify:

  • How power is used – From a circuit-by-circuit comparison to an analysis of individual appliances, we can help you understand where your power is going.
  • Points of wastage – Inefficient or faulty appliances could be costing you power. Or maybe there’s a system running 24/7 that doesn’t need to. Whatever it is, we’ll identify it.
  • Overall power consumption – With an overall picture of your energy use, you can make strategic decisions about your appliances, circuits, and power usage.

With this information, we can make our strongest recommendations on making your home as energy efficient as possible.

Energy Saving Tips for Businesses

If you’re considering a business energy audit, there are three easy energy ‘wins’ you can implement straight away.

1. Energy-Efficient Light Bulbs

As overstated as it is, one of the most important changes you can make is to your lighting. With most businesses running ceiling lights almost all day, they can become an expensive part of your workplace. Simply switching bulbs and installing timers on lights can save offices and warehouses plenty over the course of a year.

2. Securing Air Conditioning

It might sound counter-intuitive, but automatic doors can become one of the most energy-efficient changes you can make for your business. By keeping the cool air in and warm air out, you can save your air conditioner from constantly working to re-cool the air.

3. Install Solar

If you don’t already have solar, you’re missing out on an incredibly efficient energy source. And with government assistance, smaller bills, and security against blackouts (for batteries), there’s so much your business can benefit from with solar power Brisbane.
