26 Jun Building Diagnostics and Your Tenants
Often times, commercial buildings are facing issues and challenges that owners and property managers don’t even know about. Building diagnostics and testing are done to identify these issues and help correct the problems. Here is just a sampling of the issues your building might be facing:
- Water spots on the ceiling due to external and/or internal water leaks.
- High humidity caused by air and water penetration through your curtain wall.
- Irregular temperatures or uncontrolled temperature changes due to improper building seals.
- Frost or mildew build-up internally causing major health concerns.
- High energy bills due to air leakage in and out of your building.
Building Diagnostics Combines Science With Customer Centered Problem Solving
During building diagnostics services, we look at the individual issues your building faces. There’s no need to perform unnecessary tests. However, at the same time, we make sure to look at the building as a whole. One problem could be affecting another problem. This holistic approach allows our experts to more accurately isolate the issues and provide you with testing results focused on improving your building’s sustainability, costs of operation, and occupant health and safety.
Because our building diagnostic services are focused on the interaction between structure, people, and energy, we’re able to help you improve your relationships with building tenants. Through testing we help building owners and managers:
Reduce Energy Costs
By isolating the issues your building faces, you can reduce your energy costs. Because building diagnostics help locate air and water leaks that cause building systems to overwork, you can reduce the costs it takes to keep your building running. For example, air leaks in your curtain wall system can lead to high humidity in your building. When it’s humid, your air conditioning system will overwork trying to regulate a cooler temperature, which means it will run for longer periods of time costing you more in utilities.
Increase Building Comfort
Building diagnostics services are aimed at creating harmony between your building and your tenants. You want to provide a safe and comfortable place for building tenants to work. By identifying issues that can lead to major health concerns, you create a comfortable place to work. Air leaks and water leaks may seem insignificant, especially if the leakage sites are small, but even the smallest of leaks can lead to mold, mildew, irregular temperatures, and destruction of building components. By eliminating these leaks, you reduce the possibilities of these issues occurring and increase the comfort of the building for tenants.
By reducing costs and increasing building comfort, you create a building atmosphere that tenants want to be part of, which means you are more likely to retain tenants. At TSI Energy Solutions, we understand this need and use our building diagnostics services to help you do just that. If you’re ready for a quote, we’d love to connect with you on your building needs.
