Energy Management

In 1975, Cii Service was one of the first HVAC companies to create an energy conservation division. Over the years, our employees have won 15 Energy Awards from the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration & Air Conditioning Engineers.

Cii Service was one of the first HVAC companies to create an energy conservation division. In 1975, our founder, Jim Thacker, concerned about rising energy costs, began exploring ways to identify energy problems, develop solutions, and implement modifications to reduce energy consumption. Over the years, employees of Cii Service have won a total of 15 Energy Awards (both regional and national) from the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE). These awards are given in competition for projects that reduce energy consumption and provide cost savings.

Anyone who manages, owns, or occupies a building is concerned about controlling their energy usage.  Energy is about money and excessive or wasteful use of energy is wasting money. Cii Service with more than 50 years of HVAC systems knowledge can help you reduce your operating costs without losing productivity or affecting your tenants’ comfort.  Cii Service can show you how to use less energy.

For many years, building owners and facility managers have been held hostage by the manufacturers of major building automation systems. Once a system was installed, only a select few companies were authorized to carry out repairs, programming, or modifications.

Cii represents LONWorks developed by Echelon. Over 90 million devices are installed worldwide and are available from almost 100 different manufacturers. LONWorks releases the lock of single source vendors, at both the manufacturer and system integrator levels. A contractor of your choice can use any software to physically connect to the building control network.

Cii Service has more than 10 years of experience designing, installing, and servicing LONWorks systems and employs a Lonmark Certified Professional to oversee the design and installation of all LONWorks projects.  With our HVAC and system controls experience, Cii Service knows how to fully integrate your HVAC, lighting, access, demand ventilation, and controls to obtain energy efficiency while maintaining comfort levels.

Cii Service also has on staff a Tridium Certified Professional to provide the leading web-based access to not only LONWorks based automation systems, but to many other building control systems. With a LONWorks system connected to the Internet, you or Cii Service can monitor and receive alarms from the system, allowing faster response to unforeseen problems.
