Commissioning For Energy Efficiency

Commissioning is a process to ensure building performance problems are understood and corrected. . Deficiencies such as design flaws, construction defects, malfunctioning equipment, and deferred maintenance have a multitude of consequences, ranging from equipment failure, to poor indoor air quality and comfort, to unnecessarily high energy use or under-performance of energy efficiency strategies. Fortunately, an emerging form of quality assurance, known as building commissioning, can identify and cure most deficiencies. This course will explain the purpose of a commissioning process, and discuss the impact of the commissioning process on energy efficiency.
