Energy Audits Ashrea Levels I, II and III

Whether the goal is to simply reduce energy consumption or actually pursue some level of LEED-EB or Energy Star certification, the first step is conducting an energy audit, which can take on varying sizes, scopes and yes, price, depending on the desired outcome.  A LEED EB or Energy Star prerequisite requires a basic ASHRAE Level or Walk-Through as prescribed by the Procedures for Commercial Building Energy Audits manual. This manual "sets out generalized procedures to guide the analyst and the building owner, and provides a uniform method of reporting basic information." This widely recognized approach breaks the energy audit activities down into three incrementally more complex levels of effort: 1) Level I Walk-Through, 2) Level II Energy Survey and Energy Analysis and 3) Detailed Analysis of Capital-Intensive Modifications.
