Damuth Trane earns its 14th ENERGY STAR® certification, outperforming comparable buildings on energy efficiency


Damuth Trane has once again earned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) ENERGY STAR® certification for its main building at 1100 Cavalier Blvd. in Chesapeake for the year 2020. The company first earned this designation in 2001 and has achieved it 13 additional years since, reflecting a history of continued energy savings.

Committed to energy conservation and lessening their environmental footprint, Damuth Trane was the first commercial office building in the Hampton Roads, Virginia area to earn the ENERGY STAR® certification, and one of only five buildings in the entire state of Virginia when they first earned the designation in 2001. Damuth Trane was also the first Trane franchise to ever achieve this certification.

On average, ENERGY STAR® certified buildings are verified to perform in the top 25 percent of buildings nationwide, use 35 percent less energy, cause 35 percent fewer greenhouse gas emissions, and are less expensive to operate than their peers—all without sacrifices in performance or comfort.  To date, only three office buildings in the Hampton Roads area have earned the ENERGY STAR® certification for 2020.

"We are honored to have earned ENERGY STAR® certification for 2020 and appreciate the efforts of our team who helps us to continually operate efficiently,” said Clint Damuth, President of Damuth Trane.  "Reducing our energy intensity is just one of the ways in which we can give back to our community and we are happy to be able to assist our clients with the same endeavor.”

Damuth Trane seeks to support their clients’ efforts to improve their own building’s energy efficiency and create savings that benefit both their budget and the environment. The company’s increased focus on intelligent building services has allowed for other commercial buildings in the area to achieve an ENERGY STAR® certification as a result of their partnership with Damuth Trane.
