SBDI Program Covers 80% of HVAC Costs for Lamp & Shade Works

Lamp & Shade Works SBDI

A.M. Botte Mechanical provided Lamp & Shade Works with a turn-key HVAC Small Business Direct Install in partnership with Atlantic City Electric. Beginning with a no-obligation energy assessment, A.M. Botte Mechanical was able to assess the existing efficiency of the building and advise with a recommended plan of action to greatly reduce the energy consumption of the building. 

In coordination of the plan of action came the projected savings and projected incentive provided by Atlantic City Electric towards the cost of the improvements. A.M. Botte Mechanical was able to maximize the incentive amount for this project to the complete allowance, which is 80% incentive. This means that our client only had to pay 20% of the job total, and Atlantic City Electric paid for 80% of the total. Not only that, but Lamp & Shade Works was also able to finance their out of pocket portion at 0% for 60 months.  Needless to say, our client was thrilled with these results!

Lamp & Shade Works received the following improvements:

  • Removal & disposal of (11) old, inefficient packaged HVAC units on the roof
  • Turn-key installation of (11) brand new, high-efficiency, packaged HVAC units built in America
  • Special efficiency & fresh air controls to maximize savings & provide free cooling to the building when applicable
  • New programmable smart thermostats 
  • New water heaters
  • Aerators on all lavatories to increase efficiency and reduce hot water consumption

A.M. Botte recently completed an entire HVAC system installation at Tonewood Brewery in Barrington, NJ.

We installed (4) high efficiency Reznor unit heaters in the brewing area. We also installed a York mini split to provide heating and cooling in the lab.

TLC Daycare In Voorhees, NJ

TLC Daycare in Voorhees, NJ recently hired AM Botte Commercial HVAC division to replace their entire 10 Ton AC system and 300,000 BTU gas furnace.  When TLC Daycare in Voorhees, NJ, reached out to us regarding their aging HVAC system, we knew we had a unique opportunity to demonstrate our commitment to client satisfaction and technical expertise.

The challenge was clear: TLC’s existing 10-ton AC unit and 300,000 BTU gas furnace were struggling to keep up with the demands of their facility. Replacing such a crucial system, however, would require shutting down operations, potentially impacting the daycare’s ability to care for children.

This was unacceptable. As a company dedicated to building trust and lasting relationships with our clients, we refused to let a necessary upgrade disrupt their essential services.

The problem TLC Daycare in Voorhees has was that they couldn’t close down their business while the repairs were being made. AM Botte managed to replace the entire ceiling-based, AC and Furnace system as well as run new ductwork in less than 48 hours from start to finish. Our teams worked around the clock to have TLC Daycare up and running by Monday morning.

  • Replacement of a 10 ton air handler AC system
  • Replacement of 300,000 btu induct gas furnace

Retro Fitness Center in Glassboro NJ

Retro Fitness Center in Glassboro NJ

A.M. Botte recently renovated the HVAC system for the Retro Fitness Center in Glassboro, New Jersey, they had an HVAC system that was over 30 years old. The fitness centers aging, inefficient 10-ton HVAC system that no longer met their needs and was nearing the end of its lifespan, and the folks at the Retro Fitness Center in Glassboro, NJ knew it needed to be replaced.

Our initial assessment revealed a system struggling to maintain comfortable temperatures, resulting in energy waste and potential member dissatisfaction. Recognizing the importance of minimizing disruption, we proposed a comprehensive plan to replace the existing units with a modern Trane system while preserving the integrity of the recently installed roof and its warranty.

The project’s key challenge lay in achieving this objective without compromising either the performance of the new system or the warranty on the roof. Our solution involved the development and installation of custom metal adapter curbs, seamlessly integrating the new Trane units with the existing roof infrastructure. This innovative approach eliminated the need for roof modifications, ensuring both warranty protection and a smooth installation process.

The installation itself was a testament to our team’s expertise and dedication. The two 10-ton Trane units were meticulously positioned and connected, utilizing advanced piping and wiring techniques to optimize airflow and energy efficiency. The old system was decommissioned and removed in a controlled manner, minimizing disruption to Retro Fitness operations.

Upon completion, the results were immediate and impressive. The new Trane system delivered consistent, comfortable temperatures throughout the facility, significantly enhancing the member experience. Energy consumption demonstrably decreased, contributing to both environmental and financial benefits for Retro Fitness. The successful completion of this project underscores A.M. Botte’s commitment to delivering innovative, high-performance HVAC solutions that address the unique needs of our clients.

Retro Fitness is great BUT Retro HVAC systems waste energy.

We at A.M. Botte were contacted by a new client to do a project involving an Air Handler & Water Coil Replacement in Camden, NJ! The client, Leap Academy contacted us because their old air conditioning system wasn’t running properly and causing the teachers and faculty a ton of problems. All of our work was done on off hours to prevent interruption to the school starting Friday 5pm and finishing on a Sunday afternoon. We removed and installed 4 split air handlers with hot water coils above ceilings throughout the school. The AC units were split between the roof and the ground. The units were in very difficult locations that required us to remove piping, wiring, sprinkler piping and other obstacles. We removed and reinstalled the drop ceilings and cleaned the hallways including mopping the floors, we made all custom ductwork fittings on site with our duct fabrication truck to minimize the down time.
