PFHQ Preferred Vendor
Save Energy Systems is the preferred HVAC controls vendor for Plant Fitness franchisees, approved by Planet Fitness Headquarters (PFHQ), for energy efficiency. As a matter of fact, PFHQ has installed the DLC system in all of the corporate locations possible. That’s 57 of 58 locations, across the entire US, from California to New Hampshire and Delaware to Ontario, Canada. The installations were carried out from August 2015 through April 2017.
Anecdotally, in 2016, corporate has saved over $450,000 in energy expenses as compared to 2015. Some of that is due to a few LED lighting retrofits which were installed, but the bulk is due to energy reductions by the DLC.
Planet Fitness Headquarters has pre-negotiated pricing for all franchisees. The pricing includes fixed charges for the individual components of the DLC system and installation. All installations include the supply duct remote sensor, which enhances the DLC capabilities to eliminate coil freeze, provides alerts for systems not operating within specification and reporting for diagnostics and analysis.
In addition to the DLC system, Planet Fitness franchisees receive a year of monitoring by Save Energy Systems at no additional cost.
Discounts are applied for franchisees with multiple locations for renewal of software updates and monitoring services. They start with the 11th club and increase from there.
For those franchisees with three or more DLC systems, Save Energy Systems has created a custom portal for you to access your individual sites thorough a single point of entry. In this manner, all that’s needed to access all sites is a single URL.
Energy Management Made Easy
Save Energy Systems will do everything we can to make it easy for you to reduce energy consumption, thereby reducing energy expenses and increase profits. It starts with an on-site visit to evaluate the facility, capture the HVAC unit data and prepare a detailed Statement of Work and estimate. From there we will coordinate with your IT personnel and schedule the install.
The install will take one to two days, depending on the number of units being installed. Depending on the height of the facility, we may have a lift on site during the installation. Once installed the entire system is tested for functionality and unit operations are verified. A final report is submitted along with the final invoice describing any faults found during installation. We will then work with your HVAC contractor to grant them access to the system, if desired.
