At Phoenix-based ECM Technologies, Mark Atherstone, a long-time HVAC industry professional, has joined the executive management team.
Mr. Atherstone will oversee the commercial and residential distribution of ThermaClear, the company’s anti-thermal degradation technology which was recently named the winner of the 2023 International Facility Management Association Awards of Excellence, Facility Management Innovation Award.
With nearly 40 years of experience in the HVAC industry, Mr. Atherstone has served myriad facets of the heating and air conditioning business. Most recently, he held the position of vice president of training and sales with The Wrench Group, which is one of the largest residential HVAC service companies in the United States.
“I can’t underscore enough the pivotal role Mark will play in advancing ECM Technologies’ ThermaClear to national and international utilization by commercial and residential HVAC companies,” said David Fenton, chief revenue officer for ECM Technologies. “Mark’s exceptional industry experience and knowledge has already been a significant value to the day-to-day operation of the business.”
To date, ECM Technologies has successfully treated thousands of systems. ThermaClear has been used in all makes and models of major HVAC equipment, ranging from half-ton mini-splits to 1,600-ton water-cooled chillers, with an average return on investment spanning just 12 to 36 months.
Notable facilities treated include; Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, Arizona State University, Transwestern’s Miami Tower, Penske Automotive Group, Phoenix Art Museum, City of Phoenix Fire and Police and JP Morgan Chase.
“I was immediately impressed with the advanced technology, comprehensive validation processes demonstrated over the past five years and with the clear performance increases resulting from ThermaClear treatments,” Mr. Atherstone said. “Providing a sustainability solution that equally benefits businesses and homeowners to effectively reduce energy costs and enhance equipment performance is exceptionally compelling.”
