Utility Bill Management Service
Utility Bill Management Service
Every business can benefit from reduced utility bills. Not only can you realize cost savings, lower utility costs can also help reduce its environmental impact sustainability goals.
A recent study by the Energy Information Administration predicted that heating your business with electricity could cost 10% more this year than last year. And, costs for heating with natural gas (28%) and oil (27%) are also expected to rise. That can be a very large expense for any size of business.
One very efficient and effective way to lower these costs is through a utility audit. This is a process where we evaluate your company’s use of utilities such as electricity, water, waste disposal and natural gas.
At Strategic Business Advisors we understand the complexity of utility rules and regulations and can help you minimize utility expenses and maximize utility refund opportunities.

What Goes Into a Utility Bill Management Service Audit?
A utility bill management services audit is a comprehensive and detailed inspection of your business’s energy, water and sewer usage. This report will identify all of the areas where you may be wasting energy/water and provide recommendations on how to reduce those costs.
Utility bill audits can help save your business money by reducing energy bills, improving efficiency, and finding hidden leaks. Per the New York Times, many companies are saying utility bills could hike by as much as 32% this winter. So, by uncovering these problems early, a business is in a better position to take appropriate action to improve their bottom line.
The audit will also include an assessment of the performance of your current equipment and the feasibility of installing new technology or upgrading old equipment. This information will help you make informed decisions about how to best manage your resources.
What Impacts an Utility Audit?
An utility audit can help identify and reduce your businesses energy, water and sewer fees.
By performing an assessment of your property, the Strategic Business Advisors’ team will be able to determine where you are wasting the most energy and recommend ways to improve your overall efficiency. We’ll also suggest measures to protect yourself from potential financial losses due to inadequate air conditioning or heating in harsh climates.
A comprehensive utility audit can help your business save money on electricity bills, improve the air quality inside your facility, and protect the environment.
When you decide an audit is right for you, here are some very important factors to consider as part of the audit:
- The size of your facility will impact the cost and scope of the audit. A small office might only require a basic inspection, while a large industrial plant may need more extensive work.
- The type of business will dictate which parts of the building require attention. Restaurants typically use more energy than offices, so that an auditor might focus on restaurant areas during their review.
- Reviewing current rules and regulations is essential because they may impact how your business operates currently or in future years. For example, recent changes to federal lighting requirements could impact how much power you use at night or encourage you to switch from gas to electric heating sources in wintertime periods.
Available documentation (such as heat maps) can provide valuable information about where potential problems exist with regard to energy usage or emissions levels within a facility. This information can be helpful in prioritizing which areas deserve closer scrutiny during an audit.
