Energy Saving Initiatives from Business Edge
Environmental awareness, reduced carbon footprints and a swathe of other green credentials are now an every day reality for building owners and facilities managers. Not only are these eco-friendly considerations sound environmentalism, but also in hard business terms, associated energy costs are an all important bottom line statistic.
Air conditioning and refrigeration hardware accounts for a sizeable percentage of the world’s energy usage and this trend is likely to continue. Modern building design together with integrated energy efficient solutions have made substantial progress towards environmental control running cost reduction. However the harsh reality is, that a vast majority of our infrastructure is dated and will remain that way for some time to come. This is where optimisation comes into it’s own.
Business Edge, through deploying their Health Check Service, has uncovered some truly astounding energy savings for their customers. Up to as much as 40% savings on running costs, that can be realised by simply optimising existing systems and infrastructure.
Using the ClimaCheck performance analyser, the non-invasive Health Check can take a matter of hours to produce highly detailed technical data on the performance of every operating parameter of air conditioning and refrigeration systems. Business Edge’s Technical Team then dissects and analyses the data, searching for poorly performing elements that can be optimised.
Due to popular demand, the company have recently launched their Approved Partner Program. The initiative enables skilled contractors who receive in-depth training on the ClimaCheck product, to perform Health Checks, analyse and deploy optimisation and energy savings for a multitude of business types throughout the UK.
To find out more about how to optimise and thrive, or to receive training as part of the approved partner program, visit the Business Edge web site.
The Business Edge team will also be available to visitors on stand S1475 at this year’s Facilities Management Show at the Excel Centre, London 16th – 18th June. Managing Director Mike Creamer will be speaking at the show about SEI (System Efficiency Index). SEI now replaces COP, comparing actual efficiency versus perfect Carnot Cycle performance for system, compressor, evaporator and condenser.
