Existing Building Commissioning and Systems Tune Up

expert analysis of your commercial building's energy-using systems

We monitor and analyze your systems to look for operational improvements. By recommending low-cost and no-cost improvements to building operating practices, RCx helps you lower your facility's operating costs while improving the comfort and productivity of its occupants. Retro-commissioning improves the operation of existing systems and can provide maintainability, sustainability and energy savings with only minor changes. Contact us to see if you may qualify for free or subsidized retro-commissioning services through your local utility.

Energy Efficiency

evaluation of alternative Energy Conservation Opportunities (ECOs)

An energy audit is the process of having a professional energy auditor assess your building for energy savings opportunities. The term energy audit also is used to refer to the result of the energy assessment process, the energy audit report. An energy audit report is a carefully thought out plan, which, if followed, will lead you to reduced energy costs. Every building is different, and each contains different opportunities which can reduce energy usage.

Benchmarking the energy performance

first step to understanding and reducing energy consumption and your carbon footprint

All commercial buildings can assess their energy performance, water efficiency, and carbon emissions using the EPA Energy Star Portfolio Manager too. Collecting all the data needed for an energy benchmark can be a difficult and time consuming task. CERx Solutions simplifies this by guiding you through and managing the entire data collection process, from start to finish. Our team will help determine your facility ENERGY STARĀ® Score for tracking purposes and for compliance with reporting requirements across the US. Benchmarking is currently mandated by the City of Chicago as well as 9 other large US Cities. CERx Solutions is qualified to certify benchmarking results with the City of Chicago, and is a certified Building Energy Quotient (bEQ) service provider with the American Society of Heating Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE).
