AUB Comprehensive Services Program

Energy Assistance for Industry

AUB's Comprehensive Services Program provides engineering and technical assistance at your site. Depending on the scope of the project, the work can often be performed at a significant savings--often at no chargel--versus hiring a private contractor. The program covers all areas of energy use, including lighting, HVAC, wiring, water heating, industrial processes, load management, and commercial cooking. Call us at (423) 745-4501.

HVAC studies examine the sizing of equipment, offer heating-and-cooling-system comparisons, investigate problems with existing systems, and provide recommendations for improvements.



Studies provide recommendations for the design of lighting systems in such places as sports fields, roadways, parking lots, and commercial industrial plants.



We install temporary metering equipment to gather data on facility electrical usage.


Demand-Side Management

Monitoring and testing electrical systems and recommendations related to managing peak demand.


Energy Audits

General survey of energy use in a facility and recommendations on energy management opportunities, process, and facility improvements.


Power Quality

Studies address voltage problems originating inside or outside the facility that adversely affect the end user.


Power Factor

Metering and recommendation to correct for low power factor.



Grounding study, grounding testing, and lightning-protection recommendations.


Wiring/Electrical Distribution

Studies analyze the facility's distribution system, including the sizing of wiring and equipment, and provide recommendations for system improvement.


Process Recommendations

Examine the procedures for producing a product, such as materials handling, shipping, receiving, product flow, and energy utilization.


Ultrasonic Testing

Locate leaks in water, steam, air, and vacuum systems.


Infrared Scans

Scans of electrical equipment such as transformers, breakers, bus and conductor connections for hot spots, as well as scans for facility heating-and-cooling systems.


Industrial Expansion Services

Assistance in planning for facility expansions, including rates and services available.


Special End-Use Projects

Special projects to meet specific and unique needs of commercial and industrial customers.


Food Services

Examine food storage, preparation, and cooking, with recommendations on equipment, area design, ventilation, and heat reclaim.


Water Heating

Studies explore heat-pump water-heater applications, standard energy-efficient water heaters, and cost comparison of electrical versus fossil-fuel systems.
