An air audit report is an assessment carried out by Cullum & Brown to help businesses understand the energy consumption and performance of their air compressor system. This audit is especially useful for businesses that are experiencing excess energy costs or compressed air losses due to potentially incorrect or outdated equipment. 

The audit analyzes the supply and demand usage through airflow and electric metering to generate a report. The report identifies leaks, wastes, and associated costs, and offers recommendations and a financial analysis.

The Cullum & Brown Difference

At Cullum & Brown, we provide a compressed air audit report tailored to your facility’s air compressors and processes to guarantee accurate data. We will use a hot tapping technique to measure in live time without shutting down operations entirely, saving time and money. This report includes the actual flow and power of your equipment, not estimates based on manufacturer data. We will provide a face-to-face consultation after the audit to discuss any recommended upgrades and understand your needs. Our goal is to help customers for years to come.
