Energy – In the current environment of high energy prices, rising atmospheric air pollution rates and the increased concern for global warming caused by human activity, energy conservation has become a top priority issue for building owners, property and facility managers. Most conventional mechanical systems that heat or cool buildings, pumps that circulate fluids or fans that ventilate air, are powered by non-renewable energy sources including electric power, natural gas or heating oil. The use of any one of these energy sources can potentially contribute to high energy costs, air pollution or global warming.
We offer full building energy use analysis, conservation measure recommendation and retrofit design services. The following are some examples of energy conservation opportunities in building mechanical systems:
- Central chiller plant control optimization
- Conversion of constant flow systems to variable flow systems
- Heat recovery of exhausted air
- Indoor temperature control optimization
Pipe Insulation – Pipe insulation provides two important tasks: thermal heat loss or heat gain protection and avoidance of condensation on chilled water pipes. Since most piping runs in buildings (including chilled water pipes) are routed through concealed spaces, the accumulation of condensation and the resultant damage to surrounding construction materials generally continues unabated for extended time periods before being discovered. Therefore it is critical to install a reliable, condensate free pipe insulation system. we have the expertise and experience necessary to survey and identify problematic pipe insulation locations and to specify appropriate pipe insulation technologies.
