The Melink Umbrella

Are you an existing customer or follower of Melink?  I’m guessing the answer is “yes” if you’re reading this, so what all falls under the “Melink Umbrella”? In the Cincinnati, OH region, we’re best known for our super-green energy efficient HQ building. Those things help to show who we are as a company; however it isn’t always clear in what we do as a business to support this mission of changing the world one building at time. 

To help illustrate the offerings at Melink, pretend you own a hotel, restaurant or operate an entity involving a commercial kitchen facility.  Prior to leaving for work, you utilize your smartphone to check your building’s health for your employees and customers by swiping open your PositiV app. You check the latest building health makers for indoor CO2, temperature, humidity and building pressure.  The building pressure has been trending negatively for a week and notify your Melink Test, Adjust, & Balance account manager.  Next, you request an investigative visit to determine the root cause and next steps for corrective measures.  Upon arrival, a field-technician identifies the outside air damper on your RTU has been locked shut.  An insufficient amount of fresh outside air is being supplied to your building. 

This negative air pressure situation would have been substantially worse; however you have Intelli-Hood. A demand control kitchen ventilation system that adjusts exhaust fan speeds to cooking demands.  Your Intelli-Hood control system automatically turns on in case the prep crew starts cooking without the fans. It also preemptively warns your team if there’s an issue with the exhaust fan to mitigate risk from fire.

Knowing your building is back to optimal conditions you head to the back office. You start to review your utility bill statements and prepare payments.  You’re shocked at the 40% electrical bill decline. Then you remember the newly installed and commissioned HVAC rooftop unit.

Welcome to the Melink Umbrella.  Not all customers can benefit from the full suite of offerings, but these services make us a stronger partner for our customers. They invest in business growth in a responsible, sustainable manner, help us change the world, one building at a time.
