The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) recognized three distinct levels of audits.
The levels, beginning with Level 1, are ranked based on how intense they are and the outcome you can expect from the audit.
What Is an ASHRAE Level 2 Audit?
Level 2 audits begin with everything that’s included in a Level 1 audit, but offer more intensive data collection and reporting.
Some common tasks that are part of an ASHRAE Level 2 audit include:
- We break down energy consumption by end-use in order to help identify areas with the most opportunity for improved efficiency
- We analyze utility rates to find opportunities to secure a lower rate
- We collect insight into building operations and areas of potential problems. This includes interviewing important building personnel.
- Finally, we help you define financial and non-financial goals for the audit
An ASHRAE Level 2 audit provides enough data that your business can justify implementing a project that promotes energy savings without the need to collect and analyze extra data.
When Should You Complete a Level 2 Audit?
A Level 2 audit is for businesses that want to improve energy efficiency, learn about how their building functions as a whole, and identify the energy reduction projects that will provide the best return on investment (ROI).
