Water Saving and Recycling

Whether in the home or in the office, the largest opportunities for saving water are in improving Faucets, Toilets, and their leaks. Appropriate retrofitting of these components can easily amount to 30% or more water savings per person, without any change in behavior.

Air Conditioning Optimization

Very often the existing HVAC equipment go well out of sync with the operation of the building over long times. Considerable savings and improvements in comfort can be had by deep-optimizing the existing equipment. Recommissioning is commissioning of the existing HVAC equipment AS IF they were new, given the current modes of operation of the building. in addition to lower utility bills and energy consumption, we get extended equipment life, fewer repairs, improved reliability, and comfort. Sensors everywhere: we deploy sensors to tell us where and how much heating, cooling or ventilation the occupants need at any given time, as opposed to assuming the average profile which can also change over time.

Building Controls

The modern lighting control system is more than just relay panels and hardware. It is a completely digital, integrated system that will lower your operating expenses. By simply turning off unneeded lighting, energy consumption is reduced as much as 40% - 50%.

Outdoor Efficient lighting (Dimmable & Low Cost)

Exterior lighting is even a better candidate for reduced energy and maintenance costs than interior lighting. Either HID or Fluorescent fixtures can be converted to LED lighting for far lower energy usage. With life expectancy of 10-20 years, exterior LED lighting will save just as much or more in reduced maintenance costs as the energy costs. The new system will be dimmable and programmable for even more savings.

Energy Efficient Lighting Retrofit

Lighting systems normally account for 30% of the electrical energy use in office, or retail facilities. That doesn't take into account the cooling energy required because an inefficient lighting system adds heat inside the building. By having an energy efficient lighting system in your facility, you can reduce energy costs. In addition, energy efficient lighting systems provide better visual color qualities. This results in greater occupant comfort and productivity.

Solar Energy Installations

Solar energy installations enjoy similar benefits as lighting efficiency retrofits: reduced electricity bill, as well as possible incentives from both the local utilities and federal tax incentives. A combination of efficiency improvements and Solar, Wind, or Geothermal bundled into a package that is financed can pay for itself out of its own savings resulting in NO out of pocket costs, while the value of building and the comfort will have immediately improved

Lamp Disposal and Recycling

Fluorescent Lamps contain hazardous materials such as Mercury. All states require that light bulbs be recycled or disposed of according to strict environmental rules. We can perform this disposal and, if needed, provide legal certificates to that effect. Have other forms of hazardous waste? Ask us about pre-paid sealed boxes for various forms of hazardous waste. Just fill them up and drop them off at the post-office.

Window Film Insulation

Window film insulation will provide increased comfort and energy savings, reduce excessive heat gain through your windows, will offer fade-protection for your furniture and drapes, cut glare, reduce up to 99% of the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays. Window film can also prevent injury from shattered-glass fragments.

Cool Roof Reflective Coatings

Cool roofs are highly reflective, highly emissive roofing materials that stay 50 to 60 degrees F cooler than a normal roof under a hot summer sun. Cool roofs can cut building owners' energy costs. Because cool roofs gain less heat than normal roofs, they reduce the need for air conditioning making buildings more comfortable to the people inside. In 2005, the California building code (Title 24 Update) requires all commercial buildings with air conditioning units to install a "cool roof" when re-roofing.

Look around; if your building has incandescent lights (standard, flood, halogen) or fluorescent lights, it is probably a good candidate for a lighting retrofit to LED lamps. Ask us to conduct a free lighting audit. You may discover a very attractive payback by improving your lighting system.

The proper selection of the "Color Spectrum" (also known as "temperature") for a given environment is as important as the total amount of light of an installation. With the correct temperature lamp it is often possible to reduce the light output and save even more energy while keeping the occupants happier.
