A way to keep your building project eco-friendly and cost effective is to reduce the carbon footprint. When buildings use less energy, it uses the energy it does have in a more optimal manner. Because of this, energy efficient buildings save more money than ones who don’t regard their effect on the environment. Environmental agencies help to combat greenhouse gas emissions and save millions in service expenditures.
The savings at these building are fairly high. According to the EPA, Energy Star certified buildings are saving more than $2.7 billion annually in utility costs and decreasing greenhouse gases from being emitted into the atmosphere.
This costs savings makes optimizing buildings extremely attractive to all types of buildings, but especially for mission critical facilities which have high operation costs to begin with. Although these projects can be daunting, commissioning a energy efficient building can be achieved by working with a knowledgeable commissioning team.
