We perform energy audits and feasibility studies to reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. BTU Engineers offers wide range of energy audit services based on client needs and budget.

The energy audit is the first step in the retrofit process and consists of the following: an initial data collection phase; an-on site evaluation of the building’s HVAC, lighting, envelope, domestic hot water, and any process equipment and a detailed assessment of the building’s health and safety; computer-assisted energy modeling and/or excel calculation; and a complete report of cost-effective energy-saving recommendations. BTU Engineers can also provide detailed specifications for the upgrade/installation of new energy-efficient equipment that meets the recommendations of the audit report.
