At Meisel we understand that we have a corporate social responsibility to incorporate green living into all aspects of our business. To lessen our carbon footprint, Meisel makes energy-efficient improvements to our building envelope.

  • Lighting - Our operation runs 24-hours a day, 7-days a week, thus our lights are always on. By changing out our lights to low energy fluorescent lighting, Meisel is able to use one-fifth to one-third less of electric power than with standard lighting. This gives us the ability to be efficient while still being green.  In addition, many of our lighting zones are motion activated. 
     
  • Building - In order to reduce energy consumption, Meisel had economizers added to all HVAC units. These devices sense the outdoor ambient temperature and if the temperature is cool enough, it uses the natural air instead of turning on a compressor to generate cooler air. We also installed R19 pin-weld insulation in the ceilings of our buildings to keep it cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
