Since its creation, the team of engineers at BTU Engineering, Inc. has sought to help building owners/operators save money through energy cost reduction opportunities. We provide customized energy analysis for a broad range of building types including manufacturing, commercial, institutional, and residential.

Commercial Building Energy Audits and Energy Assessments

Years of experience have given us the tools necessary to successfully identify and evaluate energy cost reduction opportunities. We provide comprehensive analyses of systems necessary to the operation of your building including lighting, controls, HVAC systems, and envelope. We provide our clients with a detailed explanation of all identified cost reduction opportunities including documentation of savings projections and feasibility analyses. The team at BTU Engineering has performed well over 300 energy audits/assessments for a broad range of clients.

Manufacturing Energy Audits and Energy Assessments

A manufacturing energy audit/assessment will include a thorough evaluation of lighting, controls, HVAC systems, and envelope. In addition, we will examine your process equipment and systems as these can have a serious impact on energy costs. We will help you find alternatives that will reduce these costs without sacrificing productivity. In addition, we will identify and analyze opportunities to improve the cost-effectiveness of processes and/or process equipment without sacrificing product quality or productivity. We provide our clients with a detailed explanation of all identified cost reduction opportunities including documentation of savings projections and feasibility analyses. The team at BTU Engineering has performed well over 300 energy audits/assessments for a broad range of clients.

Residential Energy Audits and Energy Assessments

The first step towards improving the energy efficiency and comfort of any residence is an energy audit. BTU Engineering provides a variety of services to evaluate residential home performance and find cost effective energy saving solutions. Airflow and building envelope infiltration are assessed via a blower door while infrared thermography detects thermal boundary layer and moisture problems concealed from view. Comprehensive analyses of appliances, lighting, controls, and HVAC reveal customized savings opportunities for the homeowner.

Utility Billing Analysis

We can help you with peak shaving scenarios which could help you reduce your demand costs. We can also compare various rate alternatives and help you pick the most economical. With today's rapidly changing energy costs, we can help find the most economical energy source based not only on operating cost, but also including implementation and maintenance costs. We can review available rate structures and recommend measures to reduce utility costs by taking advantage of rate reductions or switching to alternate sources where possible; provide analysis and documentation for rebate applications and other energy conservation assistance programs.

Economic Evaluation

Life-cycle costing models give an accurate representation of energy efficiency measures over their lifetime. We have provided these evaluations for domestic hot water, lighting, envelope and HVAC systems among others. For each measure several factors are considered including: annual energy usage, installation costs, operation and maintenance costs, replacement costs, salvage values and utility rates. We utilize National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) developed tools in meeting Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) criteria.
