SEA works with Commercial Property Owners to optimize buildings through energy conservation measures that reduce consumption, increase energy cost-savings, and improve occupant comfort.

Trusted Energy Consultant for Commercial Buildings

Commercial buildings have high energy requirements and can strain the nation’s power grids during peak periods. Creating efficient office buildings and commercial spaces ensures a steady supply of affordable power and significantly reduces business operating costs. For this very reason, commercial property owners must tap into expert engineering services for their facilities to develop best practices for better building initiatives that will result in a cleaner, more sustainable, and cost-effective future.

Who Needs Energy Consulting Services?

Energy consumption is something that many business owners face regularly. New constructions need to be designed and developed to ensure that they operate at peak performance while maintaining a healthy environmental footprint. For this reason, all new developments must consult with reliable energy efficiency consulting firms such as Sain Engineering Associates.

Improving energy efficiency is not just for new construction. Many pre-existing buildings need to be upgraded to use less energy: Even historic and impressive buildings such as the Empire State Building have been retrofitted to save energy and improve overall efficiency. SEA will help you research and develop best practices to reach better building initiatives for a cleaner, more sustainable, and cost-effective future.

SEA Commercial Energy Consulting Services

Whether you own a commercial office building or simply lease space, it is critical to understand that older structures can still be efficient and improve their energy-savings. While the Department of Energy works to design and execute cost-effective solutions for increasing efficiency and lowering the cost of powering commercial buildings, implementing these solutions is often left to energy efficiency professionals. With our professional engineers and certified commercial energy consultants, SEA can assist in implementing these solutions.

Regardless of a property’s age, implementing energy efficiency measures can provide a new look as well as a more comfortable environment for its occupants. To keep occupants comfortable and safe, SEA can assist building owners in implementing significant benefits with energy efficiency measures such as lighting upgrades, building automation systems, and plug control. We also help with the design and construction of new buildings to achieve peak upgradable building energy solutions.

Benefits of Taking Expert Energy Efficiency Measures

While your initial goal to getting started on improving building energy consumption might be to save money, there are most often many other benefits to improving overall efficiency. However, new and old buildings benefit in different ways with similar end goals.

Aside from the financial incentives of being energy efficient, auditing and implementing your buildings energy consumption and projected consumption can offer several benefits to any business owner, including:

  • New developments can benefit from energy management in various ways; while the initial investment may appear high, it is essential to remember that the long-term benefits are substantial.
  • Improved functionality and an improved overall environment for occupants can benefit both old and existing buildings.
  • One of the most significant benefits that can have a long-term impact on future consumption is a reduction in energy bills.
  • Energy-efficient planning can anticipate future upgrades and ensure they are simple and cost-effective to implement.
  • Energy benchmarking can show you where your building can be improved and where it performs best.
  • A building energy audit can provide valuable insight into how your business or building is performing and projected savings from implementing various proposed energy measures.
  • Another advantage of an energy audit is that it can offer a comprehensive plan with various staged and tiered solutions that you can implement in your existing building to ensure that you are working within your budgetary constraints.

There are many more benefits to taking on the task of improving building energy consumption and future building upgrades.
