Did you know that about 20% percent of all the energy that we use in the US powers commercial buildings. Yes, you read that number correctly. That’s one of the reasons why it’s so important for company’s to play their part in practicing energy efficiency.
Through the hold building approach, all of the parts of an energy efficient building is designed and built to work together. Much like a car, all of the parts function to work as a complete system instead of a collection of individual parts. Using this approach, buildings can become 70% more efficient than conventional buildings.
Though it may not be plausible for your company to start over from scratch, there are ways you can upgrade your building to function more efficiently. This not only lowers the energy use across the country, it also saves your facility some money down the long road.
