Energy & Waste Audits

UHG Consulting works in city's such as Boulder and Los Angeles to help commercial, industrial, and residential buildings reduce their energy, waste, and water consumption to reduce utility bills and comply with city ordinances.

 

Energy Audits

Energy Audits are a great way to examine how a facility is operating. UHG can design an audit to meet a client's need or perform a standard ASHRAE Level I or Level II Energy Audit. 

A typical Energy Audit includes: 

  • analysis of current energy usage

  • examination of building operation schedules

  • lighting load breakdown

  • energy consumption profile

  • inventory of systems and devices

  • recommendations on ways to reduce energy bills

Expected results: 10-25% reduction in energy bills

Pricing on energy audits are dependent upon building size, usage, and complexity. 

Waste Audits

Waste Audits help organizations become more efficient. The best way to reduce your waste bills and the amount of material that is brought to the landfill is to examine the trash. A typical UHG Waste Audit includes:
