How Can an Air Audit Maximize My Savings?

An air audit may be in order for your compressor system, especially if it hasn’t been carefully examined recently. While many people focus on the initial cost of purchasing an air compressor, they often forget to factor in the cost of operating the machine over the long run. Any issue within a system can reduce its efficiency, wasting air and electricity, and thereby costing you more money.

A compressed air audit, done by qualified professionals, will indicate the opportunities an organization has to increase efficiency and save money on energy costs by examining the air supply and demand. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, on average up to 50% of the energy it takes to run one 100hp air compressor is wasted.

How to Reduce Your Compressed Energy Costs

Compressed air can be one of the most expensive uses of energy for manufacturing plants, often using more energy than other equipment. For instance, one horsepower of compressed air requires eight horsepower of electricity. With many air compressors running at efficiencies as low as 10%, there’s often plenty of room for improvement. Fortunately, 50% of compressed air systems at small to medium-sized industrial facilities have opportunity for energy conservation.

10 Ways To Use Your Air Compressor To Save Money

Most people can use some insight on how to effectively cut costs to become more profitable because, lets be honest, air compression can be an expensive commodity if not properly maintained. Leaks and worn-down parts can reduce the pressure produced by the compressor; these worn-out seals and fractured piping can also create blowouts. Expenses could also come from unintended downtime though the loss of production, which could require emergency equipment hire. Industries also run the risk of physical damage and personal injury claims. All these instances can pile on the costs of a faulty air compressor.

Compressed air is one of the most widely used forms of energy throughout many industries, with approximately 70% of manufacturers using a compressed air system, often using more energy than any other equipment. One horsepower of compressed air requires eight horsepower of electricity. With many air compressors running at efficiencies as low as 10 percent, there’s often plenty of room for improvement. Fortunately, 50% of compressed air systems at small to medium-sized industrial facilities have opportunities for low-cost energy conservation.
