Bay Area Energy Assessments Whether you own a small or large facility, getting an energy audit is crucial for the success of your corporation. Energy costs are some of the highest operational costs that a business will face on a monthly basis. By ensuring that your equipment is upgraded and running as efficiently as possible, you will save a tremendous amount of money. ICOM is a full-service mechanical contractor, that in addition to designing and installing turn-key solutions, provides energy assessments to our customers in the Bay Area. Benchmarking – By determining your building’s existing “energy profile,” ICOM can generate a report that details weather-normalized energy intensity (kBtu/sq. ft.) and greenhouse gas emission metrics for all the buildings in your facility or under your management. Energy Audits – The audits completed during our energy assessments are designed to ensure your facility runs more efficiently. An efficient energy system will lessen your impact on the environment, while also cut operating costs for your business. The audits assess all equipment and systems (such as air conditioning, heating, ventilation, lighting, plumbing, walls, and ceilings) for potential upgrades that result in energy savings. You will receive a customized report tailored to your business that describes energy-saving tips and identifies rebates and incentives from PG&E that you may want to consider. ICOM will work with you toward achieving rebates from your energy service provider. As a turnkey mechanical contractor, ICOM will help you with any upgrades your business decides to take. Our expert team will design, manufacture, and install any updated equipment to boost your energy efficiency. This initial investment will bring you higher profits for years to come. Retro-commissioning – Retro-commissioning is a systematic process for identifying less-than-optimal performance in a facility’s existing equipment and control systems and making necessary repairs or enhancements to save energy and minimize cost. Whereas retrofitting involves replacing outdated equipment, retro-commissioning focuses on improving the efficiency of what is already in place.
