Evaluating 20kW Heater Efficiency for Commercial Building – Should the Heaters be Replaced?
The question for the customer in this case study: what is my heater efficiency and should my heaters be replaced with newer equipment?
Using the Eyedro Electricity Monitoring System the customer was able to determine when their heaters were turning on and off. By analyzing the real-time energy monitoring and historical data available from within the MyEyedro cloud software, the customer was able to arrive at an educated decision as to whether the heaters should be replaced or not.
Large commercial heaters (like the type used to heat arenas) use a tremendous amount of electricity, and operating costs in a commercial enterprise are carefully tracked. Eyedro is invaluable in this type of situation offering up real-time data in both consumption and dollar amounts. Eyedro data can help business owners make the right decision when it comes to replacing outdated and inefficient equipment, ultimately saving the company money!
Commercial Tenant Electricity Sub-Metering: Landlord Feels That Tenant Is Using More Power than Budgeted in Lease Agreement
In this case study we illustrate how Eyedro has been put to use resolving a commercial tenant electricity sub-metering dispute between the tenant and the landlord of a large commercial building. As can be seen from the Eyedro real-time electricity monitoring graph data above, a tenant of a commercial building displayed an excessive electricity usage pattern that persisted for 12 hour periods. This usage was very much out of line with that of the other tenants in the building.
After some investigation it was discovered that the tenant was testing some power hungry new technology.
Via Eyedro, the landlord was able to show the tenant their actual electricity usage as well as the time period (in this case during peak electricity rate hours).
Because the landlord was sub-metering each tenant and tracking power consumption with an Eyedro Electricity Monitoring system, they were able to pinpoint the tenant’s unusual electricity consumption. The tenant’s commercial lease was then renegotiated in a way that was fair to both parties.
The landlord ultimately recovered more than $1200 in electricity costs per year from this one customer alone!

To Bob’s surprise he noticed that each morning at about 9AM there was a large spike in electricity usage. After a few more days of this pattern, Bob decided to phone up a neighbor and ask if they could pop by the house the next morning to see which appliances were automatically turning on.
The next day Bob’s neighbor ventured over, on a mission to discover which appliance was the culprit. The neighbor went from room to room, listening for the whirrs and hums of sump pumps, fridges and clocks but couldn’t find anything out of the ordinary. Just as the neighbor was about to give up he decided to check the backyard.
Looking towards the back, the neighbor could see that Bob’s hot tub was open and someone was taking a soak. As it turns out, Bob had hired a contractor to complete some work while they were away. The contractor was using the hot tub each morning before getting on with his work.
With Eyedro, Bob and Trudy were able to keep control of what was going on in their home, even when they were miles away.
