Associates made donations up to when the committee presented the check to Larisa Nargi and Brenda Kuntz of Chesapeake Regional Medical Center.

“It’s a mammogram, It’s a breast exam, It’s Super Shero!” That’s the name of Damuth Trane’s bra entry for this years Bra-ha-ha event. The company also raised over $5,400 to donate to Chesapeake Regional Medical Center.

This year the committee asked the community to donate various items to be included in three baskets that were raffled off at each parts location. Such items included Jason Aldean VIP passes, a bowling party, and a day on the golf course. In addition, associates and local businesses made monetary donations up to the very last day.

“We were able to contribute $5,481 to the Bra-ha-ha fundraiser! I’m always proud to see how much our associates and clients are willing to help out for a good cause,” stated Bruce Woodward, Building Maintenance with Damuth Trane and company Bra-ha-ha committee member.


Damuth Trane’s office has several women whose lives have been touched by breast cancer. The “Super Shero” bra was inspired by retro super-hero comic books. To incorporate the office survivors the “POW bubbles” are filled with their one word describing their journey. The bra was created to honor the heroes in the office.


The Bra-ha-ha is a lighthearted campaign to raise awareness about the importance of early detection of breast cancer. This year’s event, being held at the Chesapeake Conference Center, features a formal awards show and silent auction. Following the event the bras will be on display at Greenbrier Mall from October 1st though 13th in Chesapeake, VA.

The Super Shero bra is complete with throwing stars and a cape!

All proceeds will go to the Chesapeake Regional Breast Center to alleviate financial barriers preventing the early detection and treatment of breast cancer. Proceeds will ensure that uninsured and under insured women can obtain mammograms and other healthy breast services. To learn more about the Chesapeake Regional’s Bra-ha-ha visit brahaha.org.

Perquimans County High School was presented with the Environmental Stewardship and Sustainability Award Tuesday, May 22ndby Damuth Trane in recognition of the

Perquimans County School Receives Environmental Stewardship Award

energy conservation efforts by the School Board and Facility Staff.

“They knew they had energy pains,” noted Nick Clark, Account Manager for Damuth Trane, “so we worked together on an ongoing series of projects to help Perquimans County schools save as much as possible.”

Perquimans County School Board and facilities staff began investigating energy usage issues at the high school after high billing concerns during the 2009-2010 school year.

The Board and staff worked with Damuth Trane and Cheatham & Associates to evaluate where energy reductions could be made. Together they designed and employed multiple energy savings projects beginning in June 2010 with the rezoning of class rooms and offices.

The team installed new HVAC energy use limiting projects at the High School, reviewed the schools’ energy policies and became more conscious of the building schedule. These were all key aspects in dramatically conserving energy.

Much of the improvements were paid for using the Building Automation Controls Saving Contract. This allows the school to maintain energy gains while continuing to run the schools’ system properly. Damuth Trane continues to do ongoing energy assessments by to help benchmarking energy improvements and calculate savings.

“As a professional energy services company we recognize the importance of being environmentally responsible. We are proud to be a partner with Perquimans County Schools and to have the opportunity to improve their energy conservation,” commented Clint Damuth, President of Damuth Trane.

Perquimans CountyHigh School’s energy usage has been reduced by more than 30% from when the project first began at the end of the 2009-2010 school year, saving tax payers $73,000.

An energy audit is a process of designing and analyzing of energy flows for energy conservation in a building. The energy audit is performed to reduce the amount of energy that system is consuming.

The main idea of the energy audit is to save the energy use in a building, maintaining the best possible conditions for human comfort, health and safety.

Energy audit finds all available energy saving opportunities to reduce the use of energy.
The energy audit may vary from a Preliminary level, also called Benchmarking, to Investment-Grade audit with its detailed analytics.

A preliminary level energy audit is a simple analysis of a building’s utility use and costs. Preliminary level energy audit compares the energy use of the building to other similar buildings, reviews energy costs from electric bills, and determines the steps of a more detailed analyses.

The next level of energy audit is a walk-through audit. Depending on the preliminary audit analyses, it identifies all possible simple and low cost energy conservation measures. walk-through audit involves the visual inspection of the equipment and detailed analysis of recorded energy consumption.

Detailed, or General energy audit is based on the results of the prior analysis. This is a deeper level of the energy audit, that is studies the energy use of the facility and breaks it down to determine all the existing ways of saving energy, and provides a quantitative evaluation of the ECOs/ECMs.

The investment-grade audit performs the detailed analysis of capital-intensive modifications. Its detailed energy use report includes all the technical analysis and calibrates them against the annual and daily energy usage to find the most effective ways to save energy.

Damuth Trane provides all levels of energy audit to the companies in Virginia. Energy audit by Damuth Trane can save you a significant amount of money every year, lowering the energy use.
