About

For most businesses, productivity is a key component to success.

An input to productivity is indoor environmental quality (IEQ).  Excess energy consumption not only has an impact on profitability, but also, more often than not, negatively impact occupants’ comfort.

Most new buildings are not built and designed with energy-efficiency in mind, and existing buildings typically aren’t maintained and optimized for energy use or occupant comfort. From poor lighting design to un-optimized HVAC equipment and building automation systems, utility costs can add up quickly, employees can be less productive, all resulting in slimmer margins and poor company performance time.

Energy Efficiency Partner: We are proud to announce that Xcel Energy is one of many utilities with which we partner and our engineering studies and services meet the high standards Xcel Energy expects of its providers.

 

We also partner with CenterPoint Energy to qualify clients for the right custom and prescriptive rebates. 

 

Building Recommissioning Studies

Recommissioning/Retrocommissioning can provide building owners with quick, inexpensive ways to reduce their long-term energy costs and carbon emissions by restoring a building back to its original, intended operation. Studies have shown that careful analysis of a building’s existing environmental systems, a thorough study can typically help reduce utility costs from anywhere from 5% to 80%.

Energy Star Qualification Assistance

Green building certifications provide a tangible, measurable way for any building or company to reduce costs and showcase their commitment to sustainable business practices. Our consultants can help you move gracefully through the process from start to finish.

Energy Labeling - ASHRAE's bEQ® Program

Our Energy labeling professional is certified through ASHRAE’s BEAP program and is here to assist. The newest labeling program is the next level up from Energy Star.

Compressed Air Studies

Compressed air is typically the most costly utility in a manufacturing or industrial facility. We do more than just leak testing. We evaluate and process consumption, optimize the compressed air supply system, help reduce overall demand.

Building Automation System Monitoring and Optimization

The equipment and systems that monitor and maintain the environment inside of a building are often the biggest sources of energy consumption and loss over time. With increasing concerns over high energy costs, making sure that these systems run at peak efficiency is becoming more and more important.

Lighting Design and Redesign

Whether it’s new construction or an existing renovation, lighting is a visible component that cannot be overlooked. We maximize utility rebates while designing systems that will provide the light levels necessary. We do it using the fewest watts possible. Fluorescent, LED, LEC, and other light emitting technologies all play a role in an optimized lighting system.

Office spaces, for example, need not exceed 1.0 Watt per square foot. In fact, we’ve designed systems as low as 0.4 Watts per square foot while providing superior lighting quality.

Indoor Air Quality Testing

Indoor air quality and its effect on your occupants is one of the most important factors to be mindful of when maintaining any building. Poor indoor air quality (IAQ) can often lead to “sick building syndrome,” increased risk of tenant loss, and even litigation. SES can help you identify and resolve any IAQ issues. through careful analysis of your facility’s existing systems.

Custom Component 3D Modeling

Whether you’re building a new manufacturing line or optimizing machine components for a packaging process, SES, Inc. provides design services to facilitate fabrication and installation in your plant. Our designers work with the major platforms of modeling software to meet your design requirements.

Air and Water Balancing

Through a combination of finely-tuned instrumentation and experience, SES, Inc. can help building owners test and balance their building’s environmental systems to help reduce energy consumption, reduce or eliminate areas of extreme hot or cold, and help diagnose and make repairs to existing equipment.

Residential Buildings & Apartment Complexes

Slashing costs for better savings isn’t something that only commercial and industrial buildings have to think about. Multi-family complexes and apartment buildings need to be periodically recommissioned and analyzed from time-to-time to ensure that their energy consumption is kept at optimum levels.

Potential savings from reduced electric and natural-gas usage, can come as a result from retrofits like more efficient lighting, air- and water-heating systems, and better monitoring and management of internal building systems. And, much like commercial and industrial spaces, residential complexes can see utilities costs drop by as much as 50%.

Most importantly of all, we’ll take a big picture look at your building so that you see greater savings over time without sacrificing the comfort of your tenants.
