Life Cycle Cost Analysis

Should you invest in a more efficient HVAC system, or better insulation for your building? Upgrade the electrical system, or get skylights? Which options will save the most money and last the longest? A Life Cycle Cost Analysis can answer these questions, giving you an opportunity to decide which energy-saving projects will have the biggest payoff in the long run. Assessing the lifetime costs for the usage of your particular building, it takes in account all expenses to acquire, operate and dispose of a specific system, giving you a clear-cut comparison of your options so that you can invest your money in the most effective and profitable projects.

Total Cost of Ownership

Before you write that check, investing in a building or new HVAC system, you need to know what it’s going to cost you. Expenses are more than just parts and labor and they don’t stop once the system is in place or the deed is handed over. In fact, that’s usually where it just begins. There are plenty of things to consider that can impact the final cost, including acquisition, procurement, operation, maintenance, end-of-life management, and incentive programs. SES can calculate all those related charges, both direct and indirect, giving you a better understanding of exactly how much an investment will cost you and ensuring your decisions are wise ones.
