What We Do
Envirotrols Group began in 2001 as Telco Envirotrols, Inc., providing building automation to the telecom industry.
Partnering with ASI Controls of San Ramon, CA we developed a panel tailored for HVAC control of small-to-medium
size phone buildings. Our installed base is greater than 2800 phone facilities and can be found in dial offices,
central offices, and work centers across the country.
Initially selling Bard Manufacturing wall-mount HVAC units into that same telecom market, we transitioned into
selling Bard’s Engineered Products into the school market as well. Coupled with this change was installing controls
into other kinds of facilities. Types of automation projects diversified into new areas, including schools,
small manufacturing facilities, retirement homes, a wholesale nursery, military radar shelters, etc.
With this shift in our customer base, we changed our name to Envirotrols Group, Inc. to better reflect the variety
of projects on which we were working.
In 2009 Envirotrols Group entered the energy management market. ASI Controls product line was well-versed for
monitoring and controlling energy usage, and by working with Dent Instruments of Bend, OR, we integrated its
PowerScout into our energy management system. By means of live, real-time power usage information provided
by the PowerScout, the ASI system is able to quickly control the HVAC and lighting equipment, providing significant
savings in both energy consumption and electric demand. And customers discovered another unanticipated benefit:
through the system’s trending and graphs, they can better manage their HVAC equipment, saving money in preventive
maintenance and being proactive in keeping equipment in good repair. Several national self-storage companies
have seen paybacks of less than two years and in the aggregate have saved more than $ 3.7 million in energy costs
using our energy management systems.
