“Green” Energy Services includes not only the use of renewable and non polluting energy sources. It also includes the implementation of Energy Conservation Opportunities whenever possible to reduce a client’s carbon footprint and energy consumption.
For every KW (kilowatt hour = 3414 BTU’s) reduction it eliminates 0.524 lbs of carbon dioxide (CO2) from being released into the atmosphere. This helps the environment in a couple of ways. First it reduces CO2 pollution and it also reduces the electrical demand on the local utility.
For every gas therm (approximately 100 cubic feet of gas, or 100,000 BTU’s) reduction it eliminates 13.46 lbs. of CO2 from being released into the atmosphere. Not only does this help reduce pollution and help the environment it also reduces our dependence on imported natural gas.
Mechanical Air Service has had a long history of providing energy conservation opportunities for its clients and conducting certified energy audits. From 1979 to 1985 Mechanical Air Service was the exclusive installation and servicing contractor for a Utility Load Demand Reduction Program joint venture between Pacific Gas & Electric, Honeywell and Motorola. This volunteer program provided commercial businesses with a proprietary radio controlled HVAC load demand controller
When PGE’s load demand increased to near maximum levels they would send a radio signal to the Motorola receiver mounted on each units new control panel. The signal activated the internal controller which would raise the thermostat setpoint 1 degree per hour until a maximum temperature of 78 degrees was reached.
The program was a success and further established Mechanical Air Service as a leader in the energy conservation field which was the early beginnings of the Green energy industry.
Mechanical Air Service has on staff a USGBC LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) member and a Certified Energy Manager to assist clients with implementing strategies for introducing GREEN energy usage and or energy conservation opportunities. In addition, we have on staff an EPA Registered Environmental Assessor, a Certified Lighting Efficiency Professional, a Certified Radiant Designer, and a Certified Radiant System Installer. We also maintain a C-20 warm air heating license, C-10 electrical license and a C-4 boiler hydronic/radiant license.
