The most common misconception about utility usage is that it is driven by the type of building being managed; and therefore, it is seen as a non-controllable expense. This isn’t the case. The building infrastructure is a major factor which impacts utility consumption, but its cost is also magnified by how the building is operated. Misconceptions about utility usage often stem from a facility manager’s misdirected focus on what usage is being monitored, instead of focusing on how it is being monitored day-to-day.
