If you work in building or facility management, every dollar counts. Yet, many businesses overlook an important aspect that could significantly impact their bottom line: energy and water usage.

In this article, we’ll dive into the details of the challenges faced by building and facility managers and how the implementation of energy metering not only reduces costs but also enhances operational efficiencies.


Wasted resources

Building and facility managers are confronted with a silent culprit: wasted resources due to the lack of proper monitoring of energy and water consumption. Often, systems are outdated or simply not in place, leading to a blind spot in operations. This blind spot means that businesses are wasting money unknowingly, as inefficiencies persist and go unnoticed.


The high cost of ignorance

The results of this lack of visibility are far-reaching; operational inefficiencies persist, and costs continue to accumulate. Without accurate data on energy and water usage, businesses are essentially operating in the dark. This not only impacts the financial health of the organisation but also puts a strain on resources and inhibits sustainable practices.

Consider the scenario where a malfunctioning HVAC system goes unnoticed for weeks due to the absence of proper monitoring. Energy overconsumption not only inflates utility bills but also puts additional stress on equipment, leading to potentially costly repairs. This is just one example of the numerous hidden issues that can be addressed with a robust energy metering system in place.
