Prioritize energy upgrades like any other capital improvement project: in stages, and based on expected returns and initial costs.
- Look for ways to quantify your reduction in energy consumption.
- Calculate your return on investment to make it easier to justify
- Determine what works for your facility and implement plans in
Remember to remain flexible – if your air conditioner breaks down, upgrade it even though you might not have planned to do so for several more years.
At each stage, seek the following:
- Fast payback
- Improved comfort
- Reduced costs
- Reduced operations and maintenance
- Lowered heating and cooling system requirements
