Energy Management

Many building owners and operators want to improve the efficiency of their facility to reduce costs, attract higher level tenants, and meet rising standards of green building operation. Your building’s overall energy efficiency is affected by many things: air distribution, heating, cooling, lighting and controls. Making all of these systems work efficiently together within your facility is a challenge to say the least. For the new construction projects, commissioning is a way to ensure that all of your building’s systems are installed as designed and work together in harmony to optimize your overall efficiency. For older buildings or renovation work, a process called “retro-commissioning” is the way to bring the benefits of commissioning to your existing facility. Retro-commissioning evaluates your building’s usage, energy systems and control system, and then adjusts and fine tunes your systems.

TMI is a leader in assisting companies to “Go Green” and conserve energy. Today, it is more important than ever to conserve energy, not only to protect our environment, but to minimize costs. TMI provides the following services that can help lower your energy usage costs and obtain available government incentives.

Energy Analysis & Engineering

One of the major energy costs in operating a building is the HVAC system, usually comprising 40% or more of all electrical consumption. TMI has a depth of knowledge and experience that is not customary in most HVAC companies. The first thing to be done to analyze the energy efficiency of a building is to complete an Energy Star Benchmarking.

Incentive Program/Rebate Consulting

Local power companies are providing incentives and rebates to building owners for using Energy Star approved equipment and complying with energy usage guidelines. The TMI team will help your company with the paperwork and application process, advising you which programs are most beneficial for your building situation and needs.


Retro-Commissioning is the process of identifying what is not right with a system in today’s environment and making the necessary changes. Retro-Commissioning gets your building working the way it needs to NOW versus the way it worked in the past under different circumstances. TMI quickly analyzes the environment and provides up to date recommendations and implementation.

Our experienced Service team will be happy to guide you through this process:

  • Equipment Modernization
  • Tenant Improvements
