ASHRAE Energy Audits and Analysis

Energy audits evaluate the systems in a building to determine what measures can be implemented to reduce the energy use. ConSol’s highly experienced engineering team performs nonresidential energy audits in a manner that prioritizes the measures according to the most cost-effective opportunities for energy savings. The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) have developed standard energy audit levels which ConSol provides.

American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) E2797-11: The industry, through ASTM's Building Energy Performance Assessment (BEPA) standard, has standardized a methodology for the collection and analysis of building energy use and cost data. As such, use of the methodology also complements existing building rating systems and facilitates better benchmarking and building performance labeling initiatives.

  • Preliminary Energy Use Analysis
    Involves analyzing the building’s historical energy use, benchmarking the building and performing a utility rate analysis. Benchmarking is usually completed using EPA’s Energy Star Portfolio Manager, which allows our engineering team to determine what level of effort should be employed for your facility.
  • ASHRAE Level 1 - Walk Through Analysis
    Preliminary audit and a site visit by an engineer who focuses on low cost energy conservation measures and potential capital improvements.
  • ASHRAE Level 2 - Energy Survey and Analysis
    Identifies all appropriate energy conservation measures for a building and a financial analysis based on implementation costs, operating costs and attainable savings.
  • ASHRAE Level 3 – Detailed Analysis of Capital-Intensive Modifications
    Involves more detailed and in-depth field data gathering and engineering analysis along with detailed project cost and savings information sufficient for capital investment decisions.
