What is an LEED Certification?

We live in an ever-changing society, and also an ever-changing physical climate. Over the past two decades or so, the Earth’s climate has changed drastically. With things like global warming affecting us more directly, it is imperative that we learn ways in which to conserve our natural resources. The energy we use that we take for granted is one natural resource that we can decrease our daily usage of dramatically.

LEED Certification

The government and other agencies have taken the initiative and are assisting in the energy conservation process. One such agency is the U.S. Green Building Council. To all of us not included in the U.S. Green Building Council, LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design and is a set of rating systems for the design, construction, operation and maintenance of green buildings, homes and neighborhoods.

How to Achieve LEED certification

In a commercial or business setting, LEED certification is intended to help building owners to be more environmentally conscious and to also help use energy more efficiently. The U.S. Green Building Council is the only authority that may add to, subtract or edit the standard of the building.

Tips on How to Gain an LEED Certification

Commercial buildings can benefit greatly from becoming LEED certified. Besides cutting the utility bill significantly, an LEED certification can also help to decrease costs associated with lost customers or sending employees home because of a failure in energy usage…also known as a broken AC unit. At Climate Design, we are here to address your needs and understand how commercial buildings require more advanced cooling systems. Let us help your commercial business become LEED certified by providing regular maintenance and repairs to your air conditioning equipment.
