Energy Audits and Benchmarking

Get maximum energy value.

To help you get the maximum value out of working with us, we offer benchmarking and energy assessments to all Chadwick Service Company clients using state-of-the-art software technology.

The energy assessment consists of one of our trained technicians coming out to your facility and running a series of key diagnostic tests that will measure temperature, humidity, CO2 levels and lights. The information captured will inform us if your facility is losing money due to inefficiencies. We will then provide you with a report detailing our findings, and offer to conduct an audit, which will offer you sensible energy solutions that can help reduce your energy bills, and make your building more comfortable.

A Case Study

The Hill Building at 717 Bethlehem Pike in Erdenheim, PA

The Hill building, at 717 Bethlehem Pike in Erdenheim Pa, was built in the early 1970s. This three story office building of 18,000 square feet and (15) tenants was in dire need of improvements to its aging mechanical systems and cosmetic improvements to its interiors.

During 2011 and 2012, the mechanical costs of operation each year were $55,720. In January of 2013, new ownership took control of the building and contract services were changed to Chadwick Service.

  2. Quantify the total mechanical cost of operations by collecting energy bills, compiling total mechanical repair costs, and identifying the existing service contract costs. The total spend was $55,720.
  3. Present a mechanical performance report and strategy to reduce the total cost of operations by 15 – 20% per year.
  4. Identify a long term action plan if necessary to upgrade existing mechanical equipment.

How $900 Returned $11,000 in Savings

A 30% investment in better preventative maintenance and a focus on reducing the total cost of operations has allowed this client to self fund building improvements thus sustaining and increasing their yearly savings.

  • A $900 investment in the preventative maintenance contract in 2013 has resulted in an $11,000 yearly savings – a twelvefold return on investment.
  • Improvements to facility operations in 2013 have produced a 20% savings, or $11,098 in yearly savings going forward.
  • For 2015, savings from prior years were invested in replacement of two aged heat pumps units. This resulted in an additional 7% savings for 2015 further lowering the total spend to $41,625.
