The association says a majority of existing U.S. buildings operate at well below optimal efficiency when it comes to energy use.
Utility bill analysis, energy audits and
retro commissioning will be the main topics of an Aug. 24-26 Mechanical Service
Contractors Association event in Kansas City, Mo.
The MSCA is to present three, one-day seminars
to provide skills needed to save customers money by enhancing building system
performance and energy efficiency.
The association says a majority of existing U.S. buildings
operate at well below optimal efficiency when it comes to energy use. MSCA
says it believes that mechanical service contractors are in a position to help correct
this problem by performing utility bill analysis, energy audit techniques and
retro-commissioning procedures for their customer’s mechanical systems.
Utility bill analysis will be the topic on the conference’s first
day. Topics to be covered included units of energy, electrical and natural gas
tariffs, and historical electrical billing.
On day two, energy audits will be the focus. This includes data
collection, building evaluation, utility and mechanical evaluation, operational
and maintenance development, and energy conservation
The last day of the event will deal with retro commissioning and
discussed development of building operation plans, equipment evaluation and the
execution of retro-commissioning plans.
