Or, “Beat the summer heat without losing your shirt!”

Here in the Midwest we are entering the summer season with hot and humid weather expected for the next few months. During this time, the cost of cooling buildings goes up considerably. High temperatures and high humidity combine to increase the energy used by cooling equipment.

Beyond typical and low or no-cost energy saving measures you should already be doing (see “HVAC Gains with No Budget Pains”), here are three ways to reduce the potential for wasting energy in commercial and industrial buildings. Most people don’t usually consider these, but they can make a huge difference.
