ASHRAE Level 3
Some of the system updates or retrofits revealed by the Level-2 audit may need significant investment of funds, personnel, or other limited resources. Before making this investment, the Owner will most likely want a more thorough understanding of the benefits, costs, and performance expectations. This is the objective of the “investment-grade” Level-3 ASHRAE audit. Investment amounts can vary from tens of thousands to tens of millions of dollars. In the majority of cases, since this can’t be clearly decided or estimated ahead of time, the recommendation and scope definition for a Level-3 audit usually is an outcome of the Level-2 procedure.
