We Know Energy Efficient Solutions
In today’s environment of rising utility costs, it’s imperative that building owners are continuously assessing their building’s performance and identifying opportunities to drive efficiency. Building owners are overpaying energy costs through inefficient buildings and systems which, in essence, is a donation to utility companies. Waldinger believes that building owners should instead be investing this over-payment back into their buildings. Our vast array of energy efficiency services solves that problem by providing a comprehensive, integrated approach to reducing your overall operating expenses. Our Energy Services team delivers an approach that is built around defining your priorities and determining your success metrics.
Waldinger provides commercial energy audits, analyzing the entire building for energy efficiency opportunities. Our preliminary energy audit looks at the energy performance of your facility, benchmarks that performance against like facilities, identifies potential facility improvement measures and gauges the potential to drive energy savings in your facility. This preliminary energy audit is offered at no cost to qualifying entities with our service territories.
Our investment grade audit provides a more in-depth analysis of the efficiency opportunities within your facility. At this phase, building diagnostic technology is deployed and engineering resources are engaged to identify where the energy waste is occurring and where improvements can be made. The outcome is an engineered solution that includes identified improvement measures and their costs, projected savings and estimated rebates.
Energy and Facility Improvement Retrofits
Waldinger’s energy and facility improvement retrofits take a whole-building approach to identify opportunities that improve energy efficiency, decrease energy demand, address deferred maintenance and identify critical facility improvement needs. Improvement measures that are typically evaluated within facility retrofits include HVAC, mechanical, lighting, building controls, water efficiency, water heating, building envelope and commissioning. Through Waldinger’s facility retrofit process, we have helped our customers realize thousands of dollars in energy savings and identify cost-saving infrastructure needs.
In conjunction with providing technical design and implementation offerings, Waldinger is also your financial partner.
If you are interested in determining if an energy and facility improvement retrofit is a fit for your facility, click here to start the preliminary audit process.
Often times energy retrofits are not incorporated into an overall facility approach, but rather through stand-alone energy efficient retrofit measures. These measures often encompass the low-hanging fruit within a facility and are often subsidized by the utility company. Waldinger supports clients on a daily basis implementing these measures. Example energy retrofit measures that Waldinger can evaluate for your facility include:
- Lighting Retrofits
- Variable Frequency Drives
- Energy Recovery Systems
- Mechanical Improvements
- More Efficient HVAC Equipment Retrofits
- Refrigeration Upgrades
- And Beyond….
Energy Management Systems
As an ASI Controls system integrator, Waldinger uses its system integration and engineering proficiency to install and integrate ASI energy management systems with HVAC and lighting systems. Together, the energy management system and Waldinger streamline energy management for a wide system of facilities, including retail properties, utilities, commercial real estate, educational campuses, medical facilities and military bases.
After the energy management system is integrated into an HVAC system, Waldinger engineers maintain the system to assure building owners and occupants of operating at optimum performance benchmarks.
HVAC, lighting and power systems can account for up to 90% of a facility's energy consumption. Oftentimes building owners and managers are unaware of how much electricity, natural gas, water and other utilities their facilities consume. Because this information can affect profitability, knowing the amount and rate of usage can be critical.
Waldinger's Energy Monitoring service can provide this data as it happens, in real time. Armed with the facts, clients can make educated decisions about their businesses, their operations and the impact their energy consumption has on the bottom line. The Energy Monitoring program begins by identifying normal operating parameters, and then alerting the client whenever those parameters are exceeded. Data mining and analysis are key components.
Companies need to concentrate on their core businesses; analyzing energy consumption is Waldinger's core business. It is the firm's mission to obtain and evaluate clients' energy consumption to identify waste and provide sustainable solutions.
To benefit clients and the environment mutually, Waldinger is a leader in applying sustainable solar where appropriate. Solar power, termed PV (for photovoltaic) energy, converts the rays of the sun into electricity for use in a building's HVAC, water heating and electrical systems, reducing clients' dependence on non-renewable and diminishing fossil fuels.
Waldinger's solar energy team is led by trained PV Installation Professionals certified by NABCEP, or North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners, Inc., the gold standard for renewable energy professionals. Their added insight and training provide Waldinger clients quality installation, greater energy efficiency and long-term reliability of PV energy systems that provide return on investment each day.
Partner in Energy Efficiency
