Replace existing light bulbs with compact fluo- rescent ones which produce three to four times as much light per watt as incandes- cent bulbs. 2.

Better yet, invest in a building automation system to assure year-round comfort and savings. 3. Establish a preventative maintenance program for your HVAC equipment and systems. • Change or clean all air filters, preferably every month. • Clean all heat exchanger surfaces, water and refrig- erant coils, condensers and evaporators. • Repair leaks in piping, air ducts, coils, fittings and at the unit(s). • Replace defective equip- ment insulation, ducting and piping. • Upgrade to a high-effi- ciency chiller or AC system as new chillers are 25-50 percent more efficient than chillers 10+ years old • Install/upgrade HVAC controls to include new en- ergy management systems technologies.
