Philadelphia HVAC Firm Burns Mechanical Launches Building Performance Services Advanced Suite of Operating Intelligence That Adds Verifiable ROI to Maintenance Contracts

An energy savings tracker and other valuable data are part of Burns’ suite of Building Performance Services.

Horsham, PA (PRWEB) July 08, 2014

Philadelphia-area HVAC construction, service, and energy services firm Burns Mechanical is pleased to announce the launch of a new suite of consulting services for its commercial clients called Building Performance Services. The energy benchmarking, operations cost saving, energy monitoring services and full energy auditing capability will provide a measurable, provable return on investment (ROI) in conjunction with maintenance contracts.

“Approximately 30% of a building’s controllable operating costs are related to energy use, a larger portion than any other area of its operating costs,” said Matt Rafferty, general manager of Burns’ service division. “For clients who are willing to invest just a bit more into their maintenance contract, our Building Performance Services will give them the energy intelligence to take control of those costs and improve their bottom line significantly,” said Rafferty.

The services result in a lowering of operating costs and increasing of asset values through optimal HVAC performance. A quantifiable ROI will allow a facility owner to self-fund mechanical maintenance projects through known, predictable energy savings.

“What’s important to our clients is what’s important to us,” said president Dan Kerr. “In Philadelphia energy benchmarking is required, and our clients take the process very seriously,” Kerr said. “Higher and public educators, hospital systems, and private businesses are creating healthy, energy efficient spaces – it’s where this city and this industry want to go, and we’re positioned to help make it happen.”

Specific benefits of Burns’ Building Performance Services include:

    Quantification of energy waste
    Identification and implementation of low/no cost savings
    Identification of control issues
    Creation of energy model and financial justification for retrofit projects

Advanced Realty Team Announces “Under Water, Over Water” Home Buying Program

(PRWEB) April 27, 2014

Selling a Tampa Bay home where the value has fallen below the balance of the mortgage became easier and more rewarding yesterday when Advanced Realty Team announced its new “Under Water, Over Water” home buying special.

“We have offered to pay cash for homes in foreclosure and under water for some time now,” said George Beardsley, broker-president of Advanced. “What we have added is that we will now give the seller two tickets for a cruise in an ocean-view state room,” he said.

Advanced Realty Team is a real estate boutique that actually buys houses quickly and charges no real estate commission. Most brokerage firms “list” a house and charge a commission when a third party buys the house.

“And of course conditions apply,” Beardsley said.

“In the pilot program, we will only be buying houses in north Pinellas and southwest Pasco counties,’ he said. The houses also must be in reasonably good condition and early in the foreclosure process,” he said.


George and Maryan Beardsley, two former stock brokers, founded Advanced in 1996 after spending several years working for a national franchise real estate firm and gradually doing a larger portion of their business buying and selling homes for themselves and financing sales for other Realtors. They entered the real estate business the hard way, owing a home in Boca Raton Florida within a mile of the site for a planned garbage burning incinerator.

The Realtor they hired suggested owner financing which Maryan and George said sounded “stupid and scary.” But having little choice they sold and held the mortgage and the more they learned about creative financing, the more it seemed to be an important tool, especially when it is difficult to sell houses.

Eventually the buyer of their home refinanced and the Beardsleys received the full amount of cash for the sale, at top price and during a period when no one had been able to sell. “That really got our attention and we left stocks, commodities and bonds for real estate,” George said. The firm offers a number of ways of buying houses fast and lately has been offering affordable homes programs, using homes bought as rentals and rent to own homes.

George Beardsley holds the U.S. Patent Office Trade Mark for the Famous Rent to Own on Steroids Program™ where all rent paid in the entire first year becomes down payment and the tenant-buyer can earn a mortgage by making 12 consecutive monthly payments on time and maintaining the home as though they already owned it. This program has been modified to be Dodd-Frank compliant.

In the last year, the firm has added a Internet marketing division. Advanced also offers a service for local merchants where they guarantee the local firms’ website will be on the first page of Google.
