Michigan Commercial Building Energy Code is Changing in 2024 – Join us on June 19 to learn more.

The Department of Energy (DOE) estimates that for a typical industrial facility, 10% of the electricity consumed is for generating compressed air. And as much as 30-50% of this energy is wasted due to inefficiencies like air leaks.

Compressed air is versatile, making it a popular utility in a wide range of industries and across industrial, commercial, and even residential settings. 

In a compressed air system, the air is squeezed to a higher pressure, then stored or sent through pipes for different uses. It’s crucially important for energy and cost savings that you manage and optimize these systems.

So how do you ensure your compressed air systems are running as efficiently as possible?

Saving costs and energy with compressed air audits

E3M Solutions offers compressed air audits—a type of energy audit—which are a thorough way to improve your facility’s energy efficiency. Our team of experienced Michigan energy advisors will comb through your systems—providing a list of improvements that you can implement.

The audit process includes:

  • System inspection: We begin with a thorough examination of your existing equipment, which might include air dryers, filters, piping, and any associated controls. The goal is to identify malfunctions and signs of wear.
  • Leak detection: We’re specifically searching for leaks that contribute significantly to energy waste using ultrasonic leak detection equipment.
  • Data analysis: We study your historical data and usage patterns to understand how compressed air is used in your facility.
  • Report of efficiency opportunities: We’ll calculate the potential return on investment for each solution and prioritize our recommendations based on their potential impact—giving you a clear roadmap for implementation.

Our goal is to empower you to make informed decisions for your building’s energy efficiency. With this blueprint in hand, you’ll be equipped to reduce your operational costs and see improved energy performance.
