Most businesses know how much they are spending
on energy. However, many do not know why their
costs run high, or if their building is energy efficient.
Benchmarking is the most effective method to
measure the efficiency of a building's energy
performance. It compares a building's energy
performance against that of similar buildings. By
looking at your building's energy consumption
according to industry-standard energy metrics, Apex
Energy Analysis can assess energy performance and
identify potential areas for improvement.
* Compare building performance to neighbors and
similar buildings
* Monitor consumption peaks and valleys over time
* Identify energy systems needing attention
* Discover opportunities for efficiency improvements
* Track actual savings for improvement projects

Aspen Environmental is the Premier Company for
Mold Remediation in Massachusetts, New Hampshire,
Greater Boston, and New England.
We have the professional certifications and experience
not only for cleaning mold and removing mold that
you may have, but for taking the corrective measures
to ensure it won't happen again. Most companies are
not certified in toxic mold removal. All they do is a
"cleaning." This usually does not kill mold spores, and
they grow back in a short time.
We follow the strict standards of NORMI (National
Organization of Remediators and Mold Inspectors)
and the IICRC (Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and
Restoration Certification).
Specialties: Indoor Air Quality
