A telecommunications company in Guatemala, had made the decision to change the precision air conditioners without performing a previous energy audit, taking only the opinion of the seller. Before deciding to replace the equipment, we conducted an energy audit. Significant improvement measures and greater savings, were operative, change of temperature controls and even the shutdown of equipment completely. The savings obtained by these measures of improvements were approximately 15% of the energy consumption in air conditioning; In addition, the purchase of new equipment was avoided.
