HVAC companies upgrade Boys & Girls Clubs of the Valley systems

Posted


Knowing the critical role heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems play in creating a safe and comfortable environment, ECM Technologies, a local HVAC efficiency and energy conservation technology company and Tolin Mechanical, a leading innovative commercial HVAC service company in Arizona, have undertaken a mission to enhance the HVAC systems for Boys & Girls Clubs of the Valley.

Through the joint philanthropic initiative, ECM Technologies is donating its HVAC anti-oil-fouling technology, ThermaClear, while Tolin Mechanical is contributing its services to perform the treatments. Strategically timed to align with the Arizona summer, the donation, valued at more than $107,000, will cover servicing for 11 BGCAZ locations, totaling 186 HVAC units and approximately 1,200 tons of air conditioning.

“Supporting Boys & Girls Clubs of the Valley is more than a donation for us; it’s a personal investment in the well-being of our community,” stated David Fenton, chief revenue officer for ECM Technologies, in a press release. “I know firsthand the impact these environments can have on a child’s life, and we are honored to contribute to creating healthier and more comfortable spaces.”

Last year, more than 12,000 youth and teens relied on BGCAZ for a safe and positive environment after school and throughout the summer.

“Partnering with ECM Technologies to support Boys & Girls Clubs of the Valley resonates deeply with Tolin Mechanical’s mission to enhance indoor environments and positively impact our community,” stated Tolin Mechanical Arizona Business President Bryant Kuvakos. “As integral members of ECM Technologies’ ThermaClear Product Distribution Network, we take pride in contributing our time and expertise to optimize the performance of these essential facilities, ensuring both energy efficiency and comfort.”

Likewise, for most nonprofits, any opportunity to save money is a welcome one, as those savings can then be invested in work that fulfills the organization’s mission. HVAC operational expenses are one area where nonprofits can realize significant savings, as powering inefficient systems imposes a substantial financial and environmental cost.

The one-time application of ThermaClear will restore lost HVAC efficiency and cut energy operational expenses at each location by up to 20%.

“We are immensely grateful for this partnership. Through the generous donation of ECM Technologies’ ThermaClear HVAC technology and the expert service provided by Tolin Mechanical, they have not only prepped our facilities for the summer season, but also enabled us to significantly reduce monthly operational expenses. This reduction empowers us to reallocate resources towards our core objective: serving the children in our community. Their commitment to our cause goes beyond maintaining comfortable spaces; it paves the way for even greater impact and lasting change,” stated Marcia Mintz, CEO and president of Boys & Girls Clubs of the Valley.
