Companies may be hesitant to spend a lot of money on an independent energy audit. Hiring experts can be costly, but the long term financial benefits will likely be very beneficial if your organization is largely powered by compressed air.
However, for many local Oklahoma businesses, you will save your company potentially thousands of dollars each year by keeping a watchful eye for costly signs that signify you need service or repair. Keeping your equipment functioning efficiently can add up quickly in energy savings for your business.
Here are the top 4 things you should watch to keep your air compressor equipment working at optimum levels.
- Plug those leaks. It’s reported that almost 35% of all compressed air in the country is wasted due to leaks.
- Lower your over-pressurization. Excessive pressure often leads to more leaks and wasted dollars. For every 10 additional PSI – there is a 5% increase in power costs. Make sure your compressor is large enough for what you need to do on a daily basis.
- Steer clear of bad piping. Incorrect pipe sizes, old pipes or pipe restrictions will also lead to a loss of pressure in your performance.
- Inappropriate use is an energy killer. Know your compressed air requirements to best run your equipment. Our experts will help you determine your exact compression needs to get the job done right.
