Tessendorf Mechanical Services

Tessendorf Mechanical Services is a mechanical contractor and Contractor Circle installing member for energySMART, a Nicor Gas program, who has been proactive in saving energy and securing over $200,000 in energySMART rebates for their customers.

Recently, a large manufacturing company used Tessendorf to design and install a heat recovery program which enabled the plant to recover heat from their air cooled screw compressors to heat their facility. This was accomplished by extracting heat from both the compressed air and the lubricant that is used to cool the compressor. At the same time, they were able to greatly improve air quality in the plant by increasing the number of air changes through the ventilation of the building. This custom rebate project not only saved energy and money, it also benefited staff with improved indoor air quality.

Area churches have also benefited from the rebate program by Tessendorf recommending and installing high-efficient boilers and reset controllers, which enables the churches to not only upgrade their equipment, but to lower their energy costs as well. They have also qualified for rebates by doing tune-ups on boiler burners. Other customers have also been able to take advantage of rebates for steam trap replacements and pipe insulation. Working closely with energySMART has given Tessendorf an in-depth knowledge of the rebates, which has allowed Tessendorf Mechanical Services to help keep the cost of the projects down and save their customers thousands in energy costs.
