ENERGY AUDITS

IS YOUR BUILDING ENERGY EFFICIENT?

Is your business looking to become more energy efficient? That’s powerful. 

Rümi can help your business become its greenest, most efficient self. You’ll be surprised to learn how easy and affordable it can be to lower energy costs, cut emissions, improve your businesses operating performance and increase your assets values. 

Start saving money on your utility bills while reducing your carbon footprint - it’s the future. 

 

Rümi offers three different ASHRAE Audit Levels 

Walk-Through Analysis: This is the basic starting point for any energy efficiency project. We’ll interview select facility staff, review utility bills or other operating data, and conduct a walkthrough of the building. 

Energy Survey and Analysis: This audit includes the information from the ASHRAE Level 1 analysis and adds: 

  • An in-depth analysis of energy costs, energy usage, and building characteristics.  
  • A more refined survey of how energy is used in your building. 
  • A detailed energy and financial analysis of proposed energy efficiency measures. 

Detailed Analysis of Capital-Intensive Projects: This is an engineering analysis of the potential capital-intensive projects identified in the ASHRAE Level 2 analysis.  

  • More field data is collected and coupled with a more robust energy analysis.  
  • Utility bill review is enhanced by sub-metering data of the largest energy-consuming equipment and systems for additional insights. 

Please check out the FAQ section below for further details on each level. 

 

Pricing 

Since every project is unique, our pricing is all estimate-based. Don’t worry about receiving a surprise bill though. We’ll go over the cost of the entire project with you before the work begins.

FAQ

  • ASHRAE Audit Level 1 – Walk-Through Analysis

    This is the basic starting point for any building energy efficiency project. We’ll interview select facility staff, review utility bills or other operating data, and conduct a walkthrough of the building.  

    The goal here is to identify obvious candidates for energy efficiency. A data whiz will complete a preliminary report that details low-cost/no-cost measures you can implement right away, and any potentially larger opportunities you might want to take a closer look at. 

    This audit level is adequate for prioritizing energy efficiency projects and to assess whether a more detailed audit is necessary.

  • ASHRAE Audit Level 2 – Energy Survey and Analysis

    This audit includes the information from the ASHRAE Level 1 analysis and adds: 

    • An in-depth analysis of energy costs, energy usage, and building characteristics.  
    • A more refined survey of how energy is used in your building. 
    • A detailed energy and financial analysis of proposed energy efficiency measures. 

     

    Your energy consumption is broken out by end-use, and we’ll identify solutions that present the greatest efficiency opportunities. During the audit, staff interviews include detailing building operations and identifying problem areas. We’ll also analyze your utility bills to determine if there are rate change opportunities and/or demand implications.  

    The level of detail in this audit is adequate to justify project implementation. 

  • ASHRAE Audit Level 3 – Detailed Analysis of Capital-Intensive Projects

    This is an engineering analysis of the potential capital-intensive projects identified in the ASHRAE Level 2 analysis.  

    • More field data is collected and coupled with a more robust energy analysis.  
    • A utility bill review is enhanced by sub-metering data of the largest energy-consuming equipment and systems for additional insights.  

    This is an investment-grade audit that is recommended to justify large or complex system upgrades.

  • How expensive is the process of becoming more energy efficient?

    Our solutions range from no to low-cost behavioural changes to payback analysis for more substantial equipment upgrades. Small adjustments add up too!
