AutoServ Tilton installs high-tech HVAC systems

TILTON — Save Energy Systems, Inc. of Somervillle, Mass., is pleased to announce the installation of its energy management control solution, the DLC, at the AutoServ Dealer Group facility in Tilton. The system is operational throughout the 50,000 sq. ft. facility and covers five manufacturer's showrooms, three customer lounges, dealership offices and service areas.

Save Energy Systems has been installing their innovative energy efficiency technology, which is focused on reducing existing HVAC systems operating costs, throughout New England in small to medium sized commercial and industrial facilities including auto dealers, health clubs, banks, churches, distributors, manufacturers and commercial offices over the past 2 years.

Roland Gamelin, AutoServ Director of Operations, says "I appreciate the ability of monitoring and controlling the facility's HVAC systems remotely from my phone or I-Pad while off site. The simple-to-use web interface provides me with full control, even during off hours."

"We're looking forward to reducing energy costs, but just as important, we're doing what we can to reduce energy consumption for the benefit of the environment", says Dennis Gaudet, CEO of AutoServ.

The cost of the system was offset in part by an energy efficiency incentive rebate from Public Service of New Hampshire, a Northeast Utilities company.
