Lean & Green Advantage
At Evergreen State Heat and AC our motto is “Lean & Green”; as that is the strategic advantage we have in our marketplace, and that is where we provide the most value to our customers:
Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler
Management & Office – We have eliminated walls as barriers to communication in our open office, we have embraced “office muda” meetings and processes to identify and eliminate waste and we have leveraged technology to eliminate the need for paper
Inventory – We have standardized parts for all departments to reduce inventory by 80%. We have embraced cycle counting and tracking to ensure proper stock and levels.
Field – We always look to find the simplest method to meet customer expectation and regulation requirements, and regularly collaborate to pass along ideas.
Corrective Action – We learn from our mistakes and then teach others on to avoid them.
But Not Simpler – We get all permits and do not take shortcuts that would jeopardize the safety of the customer nor efficiency of the system.
And We’re Green
Champions are champions not because they do the extaordinary, but because they do the ordinary better than anyone else
(Chuck Noll, 4 time Super Bowl Coach for Steelers):
Our Building – Our office/shop will set the example as the first LEED Existing Building Operations & Maintenance (EBOM) Certified Building in Snohomish County.
Our Management – Our owner, Russ Kimball, is the first LEED EBOM Accredited Professional based in Snohomish County to replicate this process for others.
Green Energy – We have solar hot water for our office/shop and will soon have photovoltaic power.
Our Vehicles – All our newest veicles are 24 MPG diesel Sprinters and we will replace all older vehicles with high efficiency vehicles.
Preventive Maintenance – Our foundation is HVAC service and retrofit, we believe in preventive maintenance for our customers to save energy and extend system life.
Energy Efficiency – We have developed skills in building energy audits, system recommissioning and LEED evaluations to serve our customers needs for lower energy bills and greater comfort for tenants.
