Armistead Mechanical Inc. Services have become official Energy Star providers.

The Waldwick, N.J.-based company has earned a designation as an official service and product provider in the Energy Star program. The program is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy that aims to help save money and protect the environment through energy-efficient products, services and practices. 

Energy Star program providers are companies offering energy-efficient services and products to commercial buildings and industrial manufacturing facilities. To become an Energy Star provider, Armistead had to demonstrate eco-friendly and energy-efficient practices. Partnership is determined via examination of a company’s past projects. Program-worthy practices must be maintained in future projects to ensure continued provider membership.

According to the company, the Energy Star program membership is a result of Armistead embracing energy-efficient mechanical contracting. It regularly provides Energy Star benchmarks and energy assessments for current and pending projects.

AMI Services said that the energy assessments have resulted in improved building performance and reduced carbon emissions, as well as reduced energy consumption related to operating costs.

“We are proud to be associated with the Energy Star program, which we recognize as the national standard-bearer in energy-efficient contracting practices,” said Kevin T. Armistead, president of AMI Services. “Reducing the amount of energy our customers need to successfully operate is a win-win. It benefits both the environment and the economy.”
