Know Your Numbers
The bottom line on your spreadsheet may not be telling you everything you need to know, if you have not evaluated your car wash operation or equipment efficiency within the last ten years. Doing nothing could be costing you more than you realize. Energy-saving technologies do more than preserve the environment – they actually help you make more money!
This calculation (right) demonstrates how more efficient heating systems, which require less energy to deliver the same amount of heat as larger less efficient ones, pay for themselves relatively quickly, then keep putting money in your pocket for years to come.
Could one smart update (or initial investment) make you more profitable more quickly? Use our handy Energy Efficiency Calculator.
WHAT YOU NEED
Your boiler’s BTU
Your last/highest gas bill rate in CCF=100 cubic feet (if your bill is in MCF, which is 1000 cubic feet, divide rate by 10 to convert to CCF)
Your boiler’s efficiency (every boiler is marked with INPUT and OUTPUT; divide OUTPUT/INPUT to determine your boiler’s efficiency)
How much of your money is going up the flue? It represents energy cost paid to the utility company (not working for you), instead of keeping it for yourself. There is an option for natural gas or propane. Call us with your numbers* and we’ll tell you how we can help you save more.
