Benchmarking Report: HVAC
For some time, PRSM membership identified retail facilities benchmarking as one of the most sought after tools the Association could provide. In 2011, the Benchmarking Task Force identified a single trade, HVAC, as the focus of this program’s efforts. The result of the Task Force’s mission, the PRSM 2012 Benchmarking Report identifies the key HVAC metrics which are retail specific, and have long been sought after by the membership as one of the most important tools the Association could provide. This document is a culmination of PRSM goals for the 2011-2012 Benchmarking Task Force, and specifically focuses on three areas: policy and HVAC operations practices survey results and benchmarking, data analysis and benchmarking metrics, and component repair information and benchmarks.
