Australian libraries are facing increasing budget restrictions, at a time when many buildings are facing higher maintenance cost. Energy prices are expected to double in most Australian states by 2015. Australian councils and government departments are looking for ways for their libraries to reduce their carbon footprints that don’t require significant building upgrades. This can all be achieved if Australian libraries follow the same building envelope airtightness evaluation and retrofitting processes employed by Europe and the US libraries. A building envelope airtightness evaluation and retrofitting conducted by Efficiency Matrix is a cost effective way to deliver substantial energy savings, improve buildings star ratings, improve air quality and comfort levels, as well as help reduce maintenance costs.

Efficiency Matrix offers to the Australian market world’s best building envelope air barrier and duct leakage evaluation technology and retrofitting. Efficiency Matrix’s advanced commercial fan pressurization testing, thermal imaging, and tracer gas testing, as well as proprietary air leakage assessments software, delivers comprehensive reporting and documentation on building air permeability. Efficiency Matrix’s retrofitting team use this data and advanced retrofitting techniques to optimize energy usage, improving building comfort and air quality.
