Reduce heating costs by 20% to 50%, and improve staff comfort
For many industrial businesses, space heating accounts for a large proportion of energy use. Opportunities to reduce heating costs are typically substantial.
When heating systems aren’t correctly controlled and monitored, it is very common for temperature set points and timers to drift away from their correct settings over time.
Envantage have found that most companies spend more than they should on space heating.
How Are You Wasting Heat?
Most industrial buildings and warehouses use gas fired heaters, such as Warm air blowers (e.g. Combat, Powrmatic) or Radiant tubes (e.g. AmbiRad, Schwank).
Common problems that lead to overspend include:
- Inaccurate Thermostats – Older thermostats are often extremely inaccurate (±3 degrees C) and can be easily tampered with by staff.
- Poorly Located Thermostats – Often results in the heaters overachieving their set temperature. This wastes a considerable amount of energy; every 1 degree C above the required temperature results in an 8% increase in energy costs.
- Lack of Central Controls/Policy – This often leads to staff altering set points to achieve their ‘ideal’ working temperatures, which can often be far higher than is necessary.
Space heating is an essential aspect of many businesses, and is often a source of contention between staff. Ensuring that your heating system is maintaining a suitable working environment for staff whilst performing to maximum energy efficiency is often a difficult task.
Opportunities exist to improve both energy efficiency and staff comfort levels, with heating cost savings anywhere between 20% and 50%. Talk to one of our consultants today to find out if this applies to your business.
