The demand for more energy efficient operations continues to grow, with businesses requiring customized solutions that meet the specific needs, drivers, and goals of various stakeholders.
For decades, EMCOR Facilities Services (EFS) has been creating intelligent energy solutions through our Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)-certified, in-house technical staff and key energy-industry partners.
In the last six years alone, we’ve analyzed, designed, or reviewed energy projects in more than 25,000 facilities. Our strategies are well defined and utilize forward-thinking energy management solutions that reduce energy consumption while producing results that affect the bottom line.
With the latest tools and technologies, we capture energy data, performance metrics, and long-term savings to demonstrate our value and hone our strategy.
When a customer’s airline hangar and office needed upgraded overhead light fixtures, the EFS team got to work immediately, replacing 400-watt metal halide light fixtures with 4-lamp and 6-lamp, 4-foot, 25-watt fluorescent light fixtures. In the office, EFS retrofitted 4-lamp, T12 light fixtures with 2-lamp, T8 lamps.
EFS energy engineers and airplane maintenance staff worked closely together to design the layout of the new lighting fixtures. The new lighting provided even distribution of light throughout the hangar, making it easier to maintain the exterior of the aircrafts being serviced.
The potential for annual energy savings was much greater than originally anticipated thanks to the fact that the new fluorescent light fixtures can be turned on and off as needed with instant-on/off switches. The end result: a 53 percent reduction in energy consumption.
