Existing Buildings – Extend and Modify Existing Systems
Are you remodeling or adding an extension to your building? Applied Controls can reconfigure your existing control system to meet your new objectives. Whether you simply need programming changes or your project requires additional controllers, sensors, and actuators, our experienced staff can help you fully understand your options.
Our Emergency Service line is available 24/7/365 and your call is answered by an actual Applied Controls employee who will discuss your situation, give you service options available, review service rates, and can begin work on your emergency by:
- Using remote technology to solve some problems off-site reducing cost
- Being on site with you to ensure your most pressing needs are addressed
- Timing our services to meet your comfort and budgetary needs based on transparent pricing
- Referring you to reputable mechanical service provider for non-control related emergencies.
We want to be the first call you make when you face an environmental control emergency.
