Measurement and Verification

This is the trade lingo for "figure out whether everything is working properly and make it right". The approach is similar to troubleshooting, but could be better described as "optimization". Keeping in mind the gap between the designer's expectation for operation and real life operation, there is often 10-20% of your energy cost which can be trimmed at very low cost by just giving a thorough review of operations and adjusting them to fit the real life building.

For some reason, this activity is not done very often, probably from the mistaken perception that "no complaints means no problems". We know differently from long experience!

500,000 sq.ft. Midwest facility for OEM automotive parts supplier
At several sites, this supplier replaced aging steam heating and ventilation systems with new equipment and technology, reducing their energy costs by over 25%. The new system also now provides greatly improved comfort during both winter and summer. The computer-phobic senior manager of these facilities quickly became a fan, and frequent user, of the specially designed digital management system because of it's simplicity and flexibility.
