An energy survey involves qualified engineers visiting a site or building to assess all areas of the building’s energy usage.

They will look at where and when energy is being used, examine the BMS system and the building’s plant room. Further to this, an energy survey will normally include assessment of the lighting, heating and ventilation system and building materials etc.

Finally, a thermal camera can be used to identify electrical and mechanical problems and detect heat and energy losses.

Efficiency Direct also provides recommendations to improve energy efficiency and offer an on-going consultancy service to implement the energy saving solutions.
