Free Fluke energy-inspection checklist shows where to rack up recession-easing savings

Sydney, September 28, 2009 – Fluke Corporation, the global leader in portable electronic test and measurement technology, has published a free application note showing how facility managers can save money to help their companies through the economic downturn.

Tough economic times have made budgets tight for many businesses. But a new application note from Fluke, “Save money with best practices and an energy inspection checklist” shows how to trim costs by optimising the performance of existing heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems, without new spending.

The three-page article details 19 money-saving checks and inspections that facilities managers should conduct, in such key energy-consumption areas as steam systems, cooling systems, fan systems, lighting and building automation.

Steve Hood, managing director, Fluke Australia, said, “With the economic downturn, many facility managers are facing very tight operation and maintenance budgets.

“Luckily, many facilities are sitting on multiple energy conservation opportunities that can save thousands of dollars per year with relatively little capital investment.”
