The change to chillier weather means higher gas bills, higher electric bills, and more consumption by our facilities to create comfortable environments. Bob “Papa Dude” Bittner and Tony Butler discuss some best practices to help you prepare for the fall and winter seasons.

Five Best Practices for Utility Management

  1. Know your data
  2. Know your facility’s utilization
  3. Know your facility systems and why utility types they use.
  4. Turn off unused equipment. Show the impact of this by publishing utility usage by employees.
  5. Look into technology. For example, occupancy sensory, Energy Star certified equipment and building automation.
