Phoenix-based ECM Technologies has been awarded a $2.1 million City of Phoenix contract for up to 12 million square feet of conditioned space after running numerous, highly successful, long-term pilot programs over the past four years in the Valley. The company’s proprietary ThermaClear™ radically extends the life and efficiency of HVAC systems with one treatment for the entire lifespan of the equipment, resulting in dramatic carbon footprint reduction and substantial energy savings, up to 15% annually.
The company has treated over 12,000 tons of HVAC equipment to date, servicing more than four million square feet of building-conditioned space. All makes and models of major HVAC equipment types have been successfully treated, ranging from one-ton mini-splits to 2,000-ton, water-cooled chillers.
ECM Technologies’ pilot programs used single ThermaClear treatments on a variety of buildings including Phoenix Art Museum, Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport, Arizona State University, Signature Flight Support, ISS Facilities Services, and Transwestern (Miami). Savings results were demonstrated at every pilot property location and validated by third-party, independent professional engineers and analysts.
The typical ThermaClear payback period ranges from 24 to 36 months and results in HVAC electricity consumption savings of 10 to 15% annually. Only one treatment is needed for the life of the HVAC system and is backed by a full warranty for the remaining useful life of the equipment.
