Commissioning For Energy Efficiency

Studies of commissioning projects in existing buildings show median paybacks of 1.1 years and savings of up to 30%, sometimes more.  Commissioning is a process to ensure building performance problems are understood and corrected.  Deficiencies such as design flaws, construction defects, malfunctioning equipment, and deferred maintenance have a multitude of consequences, ranging from equipment failure, to poor indoor air quality and comfort, to unnecessarily high energy use or under-performance of energy efficiency strategies. Fortunately, an emerging form of quality assurance, known as building commissioning, can identify and cure most deficiencies.  This course will explain the purpose of a commissioning process, and discuss the impact of the commissioning process on energy efficiency.
