What Is an Energy Audit?

An energy audit is the first step that commercial property owners need to take towards learning about their energy consumption and how to control it. A commercial energy audit in Ontario entails an energy auditor from a company like PL Energy Services visiting your property and conducting a detailed inspection of your utility bills, equipment, and energy procurement to give you feedback on how to reduce your energy usage. They may suggest adjustments or upgrades to your building or equipment, or they may suggest using peak amounts of energy during off hours.

Why Is an Energy Audit Required?

As energy prices continue to rise each year, more and more companies are looking for ways to reduce their energy bill. Having a commercial energy savings audit conducted on your Toronto property is a great way to identify exactly where you can cut costs. Energy costs can cut into your profit, so it’s important that businesses don’t pay for more energy than they need to. There are small things business owners can do to save energy and reduce their costs, but sometimes these opportunities are unrecognizable without the help of an energy audit. Auditors can help you realize where you may be wasting energy and how to fix these areas to optimize your energy consumption.
