In a tough economy, Fluke shows how facilities managers can boost efficiency and save money

Fluke Corporation, a global manufacturer of portable electronic test and measurement and thermal imaging technology, has published guidelines and tips for facility managers under pressure to cut energy costs in these tough economic times.

With the economic downturn, many facility managers face 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, according to Fluke's press release.

A checklist showing where to look for these savings is now available in the Fluke application note, “Save money with best practices and an energy inspection checklist,” available free on the Fluke web site.

Fluke produces tools that professionals use to test, tune and maintain their heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. Fluke Thermal Imagers are invaluable to identify energy losses, inspect electrical and mechanical equipment and for many other everyday troubleshooting and maintenance tasks. More information on HVAC and indoor air quality issues is available at the Fluke HVAC-IAQ Resource Center. The Fluke Energy Efficiency Resource Center provides additional guidance on energy savings and sustainability.
