The building was built in the late ’70s and still had the original Heating, Cooling and Ventilation Equipment. The roof top units were starting to have compressor failures and used a refrigerant that was being phased out of use. The building owners were looking at a significant capital outlay which they determined that the CPACE program would give them access to the capital to replace the rooftop units while also implementing additional energy conservation measures.
In addition to the required ASHRAE Level III Energy Audit for CPACE we participated with the building owner’s in deciphering five energy conservation measures that could be configured into multiple energy conservation scenarios. Our participation included producing a written report outlining the results of the energy audit, a preliminary budget, and a simple payback analysis. The report contained charts and graphs breaking down the information into a readable and understandable format for non-industry building owners. We met with the owner’s, went through the report, and then assisted them in deciding on the energy conservation measure to be implemented.
DMA’s Unique Advantage: Presented complex data to the client in a layman, readable format in graphs and charts in our final report and presentation.
