Compressed Air System Efficiency
Leaks are a significant source of wasted energy in a compressed air system, often wasting as much as 20 to 30 percent of the compressor’s output. Compressed air leaks can also contribute to problems with system operations, including:
• Fluctuating system pressure, which can cause air tools and other air-operated equipment to function less efficiently, possibly affecting production
• Excess compressor capacity, resulting in higher than necessary costs
• Decreased service life and increased maintenance of supply equipment (including the compressor package) due to unnecessary cycling and increased run time.
Space heating takes up a lot of space on your energy bill. It accounts for 36 percent of the total energy used in commercial buildings, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. If your boiler or furnace is older or in need of repair, upgrading to a new, high-efficiency system can really save you money.Read More Tips
