Repairing leaks qualifies for rebates! 

0217-PPL-CI-687681-2017 Email Assests and Support_Compressor_R1.png

That hissing noise could be a leak. Leaks rob plants of money by allowing air that’s been compressed to escape before it has done any useful work. Consider regularly checking for leaks and fixing them. Reducing leakage equates to savings on your electric bill: a 1/16” leak can waste as much as $1,000 per year in electricity. *

*Costs calculated using electricity rate of $0.10 per kWh, assuming constant operation and an efficient compressor.

This project involved changing heat lamps to heat mats which greatly reduce the amount of energy used. These mats actually turn themselves off when the air temperature exceeds 80 degrees. Our engineering team will quantify the savings by averaging the overall yearly consumption of the existing lamps against the new heat mats. This is a great example of a contractor “thinking outside the bulb,” and finding new ways of helping their customers save energy. If a project can demonstrate kWh savings, then there is a good chance it can be qualified for a rebate.
