Building re-tuning is a systematic process to identify and correct building operational problems that lead to energy waste. The goal is to identify measures that can be implemented at no or low cost other than the labor required to perform the re-tuning process.

Be proactive and save

 

By pro-actively utilizing the energy savings opportunities taught in the re-tuning training, operations staff can save between 5 and 25 percent of all energy used in the building.

Convenient 2-day format

 

This 2-day course provides an overview of how to make small/medium-sized buildings more efficient, leading to energy savings and reduced operating cost.

Hands-on learning

 

The first day of training is a blend of in-class instruction and discussion. Day 2 consists of a physical building investigation (building "walkdown").
