    Net Savings

    The payback period is typically one to two years. 

  • Feasibility

    Some Challenges

    Continuous commissioning’s biggest costs are often time and labor with very little capital costs.

  • Timeline

    < 1 year

    Minimum monitoring time should be 1 year to verify annual  performance improvements.

  • Maintenance

    High

    Overall maintenance costs will be reduced by active monitoring of building systems over time.

  • Publicity

    That's cool

    Operational improvements greatly benefit occupants and bottom line, but they may have limited PR value.
