Engineered Energy Equipment has joined the Central Florida Hotel & Lodging Association

Since 2005, EEE has proudly represented the leading manufacturers of boilers, burners, and auxiliary equipment

Engineered Energy Equipment (EEE) is not only based in Central Florida, but all the members of the team have been born and raised in the Lakeland, Florida area where they are raising families and providing state of the art boiler equipment for Florida-based companies. EEE clients range from citrus processing plants to universities to hospitals to distilleries to micro-breweries and factories, and to Central Florida’s most iconic theme park:  Disney World.

Because of world-class theme parks like Disney, Central Florida is the #1 most visited destination in the United States.  Recent statistics indicate that 72 million-plus annual visitors visit the Greater Orlando area every year.  In 2019, the Orlando Business Journal wrote that Central Florida has 450 hotels with 125, 000-plus guest rooms.

In other words, the theme parks and hospitality industries in Central Florida are two of the primary engines that fuel tourism throughout the state of Florida, and EEE is poised to support Florida’s #1 industry by providing state of the art boilers, burners, and auxiliary equipment.

After many years of providing products and services to industries that support Florida tourism, agriculture, and healthcare, EEE joined the Central Florida Hotel & Lodging Association (CFHLA) in 2019.

“As a company, we decided that we wanted to consistently reach out to Central Florida’s hospitality industry, and what better organization for EEE to join than CHFLA:  one of Central Florida’s largest and most influential trade groups?” said Kevin Warren, EEE Director of Sales. Representing hotel, motel, time share, and rentals companies in Orange, Seminole, and Osceola Counties, CHFLA gives the hospitality and tourism industries a voice in government and an outreach platform in the community.

EEE is proud to be networking with a business association that represents 80% of the more than 125,000 hotel rooms in Central Florida.  As an allied member, EEE is among the nearly 500 “supplier” organizations in CHFLA.

It’s easy to understand why hotels ranging in size from Rosen Shingle Creek at 524,000 square feet to the Orlando World Center Marriott at 450,000 square feet to the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center at 406,662 square feet need state of the art boilers and ongoing service.

No guest at a hotel or motel (regardless of size) wants a cold shower, so destination hotels need boilers to provide hot water to thousands of guest rooms, and that requires multiple boilers and readily accessible service in Central Florida.

Bill Michell, director of engineering for the Marriott Marquis New York, has to provide hot water to 1,996 rooms. In an article featured in USA Today, Michell said, “It’s just like a car…We’re constantly doing service on our car.” Michell added that he can provide hot showers to his 1,996 rooms, even if showers go on at the same time. He has three boilers the size of a tractor-trailer and about a dozen heat exchangers. They take in city water and push it through a system. Water goes through one end and gets filtered into steam.  https://www.usatoday.com/story/travel/hotels/2018/12/03/hot-showers-hotels/2154259002/

 At CHFLA, Engineered Energy Equipment is a member of the Engineers’ Council that networks with the members’ hotel engineering departments and their Chiefs and Directors of Engineering. Representing state of the art manufacturers that produce boilers, burners, and auxiliary boiler room equipment, EEE not only sells equipment but they maintain ongoing relationships with their clients who require consultation and service of one of the most important aspects of their physical plant:  the boiler room.

2020 AHR EXPO

Engineered Energy Equipment (EEE) Promotes Manufacturers at 2020 AHR Trade Show and Exhibition

EEE Represents Vendors of Boilers, Burners, Controls, and Auxiliary Equipment

Engineered Energy Equipment (EEE), a Lakeland-based organization representing over ten (10) product lines for manufacturers of boilers, burners, controls, and auxiliary equipment, will be attending the AHR Trade Show and Exhibition at the Orange County Convention Center from February 3 – 5, 2020.

The Air-conditioning, Heating, Refrigeration (AHR) trade show and exhibition will feature more than 1,800 exhibiting companies from 35 countries representing every facet of the industry and includes over 500,000 net sq. ft. of exhibits. As a registered attendee, EEE will be among thousands of attendees from more than 160 countries.

Recognized as the largest trade show of its kind, the AHR Expo is the world’s largest expo for the heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration (AHVCR) industry. While 2020 marks the 72nd year of the AHR Expo, EEE’s Director of Sales Kevin Warren shared that EEE has been traveling to Orlando and wherever the AHR convenes to promote the manufacturers that EEE represents.

“For EEE and for our vendors, this is the biggest show of the year. We represent over ten (10) product lines in the boilers and burners industry, so we attend AHR to raise awareness of EEE and to educate attendees about our vendors. We are proud to introduce our manufacturers and their product lines to the HVAC and refrigeration industries,” said Warren.

Hubble Keller, EEE owner, explained that vendors in the HVAC industry are closely aligned with the work of EEE. “Engineered Energy Equipment focuses primarily on providing boilers, burners, controls and auxiliary equipment to manufacturers, hospitals, distilleries, craft breweries, and many other large factories in Florida. We work closely with many HVAC providers and their vendors including engineers, electricians, plumbers, and mechanics. The AHR Expo gives us a great opportunity to network with vendors and attendees who we introduce to our product lines during the show,” said Keller.

Both Keller and Warren explained that the AHR Expo provides lots of opportunities for learning and networking that includes ASHRAE Learning Institute courses; certification exams; free product and technology previews; and free seminars from industry leaders. “This is where we come to meet new business partners and learn from each other,” added Warren.

Special features of the AHR Expo include a showcase focused on Building Automation and Controls. As well, there is a software center, a New Product and Technology Theater presentation, and an AHR Expo Innovation Awards Ceremony.

EEE is a member of several large trade and business associations such as Florida Healthcare Engineers Association (FHEA) and the Central Florida Hotel and Lodging Association (CFHLA) in Orlando: close to EEE’s offices in Lakeland, Florida. “Central Florida is our home and our home base for EEE,” said Warren. “We are proud to be hosting our vendors from across the United States and around the world, and there is no better expo hall than here in Orlando at the Orange County Convention Center,” added Warren.

While this is the 72nd AHR Expo, 2020 marks 90 years since the Show hosted its first gathering in 1930, bringing together HVACR professionals from all sectors of the industry. Serving commercial, industrial, residential, institutional and technology markets, the Show is the industry’s cumulative gathering of all professionals and markets under one roof. Each year, manufacturers from all over the world exhibit their systems, equipment, and components with air-conditioning, heating, plumbing, ventilation, and refrigeration applications. Thousands of contractors, engineers, OEMs, distributors and other industry professionals attend the Exposition in search of new and innovative products and services that enhance the way they do business.

In addition to the AHR Expo, there will be leading industry association meetings held as well as the ASHRAE Winter Conference. EEE looks forwarding to networking with their vendors who they proudly represent at the AHR Expo and throughout the state of Florida.
