Every business has the opportunity to operate more efficiently and wasted air could be losing you thousands. Learn where, why, and how you can mitigate inefficiencies in your air system with a in-depth air audit.
Think of air audits as just another cost to the business? Wrong! Our audits stand to improve your bottom line—generally producing ROI in less than 12 months, with efficiency and energy gains thereafter as facility-wide cost savings!

Why Invest in a Supply and Demand Air Audit?
1. Over-Pressurizing a Compressed Air System is Costly.
2. Operating on a Larger Compressor than Needed Can Result in Extra Costs.
Are you using a larger compressor than you need? An air audit can tell you if you can save on maintenance costs by switching to a smaller compressor. Parts might not be as expensive for a 75 HP when compared to a 100 HP, and a smaller compressor may require less compressor oil.
3. An Air Audit can Identify Equipment Issues.
Faulty thermostats, coolers, and inlet valves can all be identified during an air audit.
4. Audits can show a Lack of Storage (Air Receivers) in a System.
Air receivers are important for a number of reasons, but they are especially important for storage in high demand areas. Storage in high demand areas reduces KW by the compressor if applied properly.
5. Audits can Identify Areas of Wasted Air.
An air on a demand side audit includes leak detection and shows leaks. A typical plant has 20% to 30% of its compressed air just feeding leaks. So a 100 HP compressor may be using approximately 25 HP just to feed leaks. That can be thousands of $$$ every year.
6. See if Compressors are Operating Properly.
When multiple compressors are operating correctly, you can see if they are communicating properly.
7. Helps You Identify Pipe Issues.An air audit catches issues with piping: too small diameter and too much turbulence in the pipe.
