Can you imagine that buildings in America account for 40% of our total energy consumption? There are so many saving opportunities in existing buildings. We utilize ASHRAE procedures for our energy audits to assure we’re thorough. We have guidelines for Levels 1, 2 and 3 of audit effort so you can select and understand what systems we’re looking at. At the end, we’ll have actionable suggestions and can assist you in implementing any of them. If you have concerns that your building/home is not operating to the level that it should, let us take a peak.
The plumbing systems operate in the shadows of our homes and buildings. Much of our water and waste is buried beneath concrete or hidden behind walls. That makes the design even more important as simple issues could cause massive damage, costly repairs, and downtime. We leverage our experience with plumbing systems to produce code-compliant designs that lend to easier or no maintenance while also giving you peace of mind.
