Commercial Refrigeration

An Anti-Sweat Heater Control system saves you energy and money (typically 70-90 percent on your anti-sweat heating costs) by activating the heat strips only when the formation of condensation is detected.

Compressed Air Systems

Upgrading compressed air equipment and correcting air leaks can improve compressed air capacity and decrease energy costs.  


Rebates for high efficiency commercial cooling equipment includes rooftop units, packaged terminal units and central chillers.  Clean & tune rebates also available.
