30+ Solid Years Of Service (1984 - 2015)
U.S. Energy Services, Inc. (a state licensed Class A Air Conditioning contractor) began operations specializing in the mechanical services (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC)) industry in 1984, where the primary markets serviced were residential and light commercial. Over the next three years, Alan L. Wozniak, CIAQP, President/CEO recognized that many of the HVAC systems, U.S. Energy Services, Inc. was servicing for commercial, residential and institutional customers displaced visual contamination on interior surfaces.
U.S. Energy Services, Inc. began investigating concerns of contaminated air-conditioning systems to determine the link with indoor environmental pollution. After extensive research and correspondence with organizations such as the World Health Organization ( W.H.O.), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Occupational, Safety, and Health Administration (OSHA) the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), the Florida Department of Health, to name a few, indoor air pollution was evidently a problem that the air-conditioning industry would have to face.
Health and safety concerns were disclosed by these customers requesting professional evaluation and where necessary, mitigation of indoor environmental deficiencies.
