This issue may be curbing your commercial energy efficiency
Commercial building energy efficiency is one major goal for grocery store, convenience store and restaurant owners. Energy management systems can help owners accomplish this goal. However, these systems will become outdated over time, and this could result in a reduction of your building’s energy efficiency. Luckily, there’s a team that offers energy retrofits that can help solve this problem.
Our Energy Optimization team has been helping business owners meet their energy reduction goals for more than 20 years. In fact, we’ve completed more than $750 million in energy retrofit projects for clients across the U.S. One lesson our team has learned from these projects is keeping your systems updated is vital to maintaining high energy efficiency in commercial buildings. To help businesses maintain their energy efficiency, our team offers services like energy management system (EMS) control upgrades.
How EMS control upgrades can help maintain high commercial building energy efficiency
There are many ways to ensure high energy efficiency in your commercial building, but one of the most effective is making sure your EMS stays up to date.
Energy management systems are vital to commercial buildings. This is because they offer the capability to control the many systems in grocery stores, convenience stores and restaurants that use energy. For instance, a typical EMS can be used to control the operation of commercial refrigeration, HVAC, dehumidification and lighting systems. However, there are several problems that an outdated EMS can present.
One problem with an outdated EMS is parts may be difficult to find. Since an EMS is vital to the running of so many systems in a building, having it break down can seriously affect the energy efficiency of your business. This issue is made even more serious if you have an out-of-date system because it may take longer to get the parts to fix it. It may even be impossible to find the necessary parts. In both cases, your building will have reduced energy efficiency for an extended period of time, and this can lead to much higher energy costs.
Energy Optimization can help you overcome this and other problems arising from an outdated EMS. Our EMS control upgrade service evaluates your EMS equipment, its software and the systems it controls. We’ll then design a solution that fits your needs and your budget. Our upgrades are designed to provide benefits such as:
- Increasing efficiency of all monitored systems
- Lowering EMS maintenance costs
- Keeping your energy costs low
- Kilowatt savings that can trigger utility rebates
Are you ready to upgrade your EMS and keep your commercial building energy efficiency high? Energy Optimization is here to help you. We can even help you perform EMS control upgrades at multiple locations, which will multiply your energy savings. You’ll just have to take one step to begin the upgrade process.
