SMYRNA, GA. – EMCOR Services Aircond was named Partner of the Year by Aflac for its delivery of mechanical, energy, automation, and facilities services at Aflac's international headquarters in Columbus, Ga. Having saved Aflac $4 million in energy costs over the last four years, EMCOR Services Aircond was one of four companies named an Aflac Partner of the Year in a competition with over 200 companies that provide Aflac with services. Based in Smyrna, Ga., Aircond is the leading commercial and industrial HVAC service company in the Southeast. Aircond is a subsidiary of EMCOR Group Inc. EMCOR Services Aircond has been working since 2004 at Aflac's one million square foot corporate campus in Columbus. A portion of the energy savings were derived by replacing the existing direct digital control system with a new facility management system. This facilitated the installation of energy saving programs that have been instrumental in a more effective operation of the facility, such as a campus wide demand strategy that controls space temperature set points based on real time energy consumption, proper scheduling based on occupancy and hours of use, air handling unit deck reset, and hot water and chilled water reset and coordination of the mechanical systems to provide sufficient heating and cooling at the lowest operating cost. "It’s an honor to have been named an Aflac Partner of the year, and we are looking forward to continuing our efforts to upgrade facilities to enable Aflac to realize even greater energy efficiencies in the future," stated Kelly Cutchins, president of EMCOR Services Aircond. EMCOR Services Aircond is the largest commercial and industrial HVAC service company in the Southeast, with 75 years of experience in system design, installation, maintenance and repair.
