Energy analysis provides objective and credible energy comparison data from sources like the Energy Solutions Center, Department of Transportation, Department of Energy and more to demonstrate the best energy solution for affordable, reliable and clean energy in all market segments. Energy analysis studies deliver a simplified presentation of energy costs savings (annual operation and maintenance, plus greenhouse gas emissions reduction) comparison between natural gas, electric, oil and propane for building HVAC, domestic water heating and other systems.
Studies support the upfront capital investment in natural gas appliances, conveying equipment-typical life-cycle performance data. Whether the building design is a large commercial structure or a multifamily garden/high-rise structure, the energy studies are customized with typical and advanced building equipment system scenarios to provide a comprehensive energy analysis. Washington Gas’ Engineered Sales Team will evaluate your building equipment energy needs and provide custom energy analysis to position natural gas as the first choice for affordable, reliable and clean energy in all market segments.
