Signs you can improve commercial building energy efficiency
If you own a commercial building that houses a grocery store, restaurant or convenience store, you may believe that your commercial building’s energy efficiency is high. However, if you look a little more closely, you may notice some signs that you can improve the efficiency of your building even more.

Two signs you can improve the energy efficiency in your commercial building
Our team at Energy Optimization knows commercial building energy efficiency is important for the businesses who use such buildings. In fact, we can tell you there are two signs in particular that show your building’s energy usage could be reduced.
One sign that your building needs energy efficiency improvements is your store is getting dimmer. Light is vital in commercial buildings because it helps create a comfortable buying environment and helps your customers view your products. However, your lights may have dimmed over time, and this may, in turn, have degraded the look of your store. The worst part is that these negative changes may be happening while your lighting system continues to use the same amount of energy.
A second sign you need to make energy retrofits in your building is if customers are regularly complaining about the temperature in your store. Maintaining the appropriate building temperature is the job of your HVAC system. Over time, worn out parts and out-of-date control software may cause your system to use more energy to do its job. These problems may even reduce the effectiveness of your HVAC system to the point that your customers start to complain.
If you’ve noticed either of these signs in your building, Energy Optimization is here to help. Our team can help you find energy-efficiency solutions that may include:
- Energy management system retrofits that use up to 30 percent less energy
- HVAC control and hardware solutions that save up to 55 percent of system energy
- LED lighting upgrades that use up to 60 percent less energy
- High-efficiency motors that use 65 percent less energy
Using these and other services, our Energy Optimization team can help you increase the energy efficiency in your commercial building in ways that may provide you with several benefits. For instance, you could have an improved customer experience, lower your energy usage and reduce your energy bills. We may even be able to help you get utility rebates for the energy reduction measures you take. To find out more about how we can help you, there’s only one step you need to take.
