12 Tips for Cooling and Airflow Practices for Energy-Efficient Facility Management

By Ali Mohammed, Senior Director Reliability Engineering and Gary Graham, Senior Director Energy Management

Renewed focus on the “E” in ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) has put the spotlight on efficiently operating facilities. Facility managers and executives are always looking for ways to reduce energy usage, energy spend, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and identify solutions to improve sustainability. The potential solutions may include infrastructure upgrades (retrofits, replacements, technology updates) requiring extensive capital funding needs.

While these projects may be essential to improve the facility energy portfolio, reduce energy consumption, reduce GHG emissions and improve energy rating certifications such as ENERGY STAR and LEED, the organization may not have the desired funding levels available to accomplish the projects identified. Additionally, many facility managers may not have access to energy specialists for guidance and support.

In our latest article we identify 12 energy and sustainability practices and cost-effective solutions that can be easily implemented or coordinated by maintenance teams to supplement the facility’s energy reduction goals. These practices will enable FM teams to improve energy utilization and preserve the life of cooling and airflow equipment during the summer months. Download the 12 tips here.
