Measuring Your Energy Output

If your business is experiencing an excess in energy costs or if you would like to see how your current compressor machinery is performing, you may want to consider outsourcing an air audit. Cullum & Brown has the measurements and information you need to understand the energy consumption from your current air compressor system and the expertise to solve these problems for you, all without causing plant shutdowns. 

Air audit reports are normally done when businesses are seeing major energy expenses and/or compressed air losses during operation with potentially incorrect or outdated equipment. Audits assist in assessing the capabilities of your equipment and measures it against the potential. Your savings matter to Cullum & Brown, so we want to be able to provide you with the technical knowledge necessary to succeed. 

Why You Need An Air Audit

Energy-savings are a huge benefit to air audits, not only does it reduce overall energy bills but oftentimes this could also mean you are eligible for rebates from your power company if proper upgrades are made. Possessing this type of detailed information could result in potential average energy savings of up to $20k to $30k per year for your business. These savings fluctuate based on your existing energy consumption, but ultimately an audit will benefit you in the long run because you will have the necessary solutions right at your fingertips.

Audits that Matter

Reducing electrical costs with an air audit reduces cost across the board.
