Many older buildings have aging pneumatic controls. These compressed air systems are economical and reliable, however, they do not provide the technology for communication between equipment. As a comprehensive mechanical service provider, McKenney’s Automation & Controls team intuitively links your entire HVAC mechanical system and controls into one integrated system. We streamline the transition from one system for easy monitoring and maintenance.
