We have worked with Custom Mechanical Equipment and their dedicated staff for over 15 years. Specifically, we have utilized their Multizone replacement units in the California School Market. This has been a great, cost effective solution for budget conscious school districts. CME has provided responsive engineering support in the design phase, construction phase, and through project completion on well over 20 successful projects. –

Custom Mechanical Equipment exceeded our expectations with their attention to detail and up-front planning and engineering. CME provided viable solutions to the challenges we faced with replacing our existing rooftop HVAC units. Their units fit to our existing structures and are very easy to operate and maintain. Thank you, CME, for all your hard work in making our projects a success.

CME’s field research of existing multi-zone rooftop units greatly reduces the man-hours required to specify replacement units.  A custom PMZ has been coordinated with CME, to meet the demands of limited basement access and external static pressure requirements.  Controls modifications recommended by the Test & Balance Contractor, and incorporated into the PMZ’s, will increase comfort for all zones and satisfy ASHRAE outside air requirements. Phone conferences with CME lead to quick turnaround of selection data, reduced time required for ductwork routing.   CME’s drawings and specifications are being incorporated into our book specification, thus expediting shop drawings and placement of PMZ orders.  CME’s team spirit is inspiring, especially during overtime hours required to meet project deadlines.

CME has helped Cookshack in several areas of our business. From our heat and air system to powder coating of our products, CME always puts customer service first. CME delivers high quality products that they stand behind and their customer service approach is to also make the customer happy.

We have dealt with CME as a building automation system interface to a third party BACnet system for years and have had a great experience from the controls and service side of the system.  Great, reliable company to work with. Mark Anderson,

CME has an HVAC solution for nearly all applications, particularly school districts, both primary and higher education.  Their multi-zone penthouse provides precision zoning for classroom areas with components that are easily replaceable with off-the-shelf parts, not expensive OEM.  The efficiencies of their systems are on a par with any technology available:  VRF, geothermal heat pumps, water source heat pumps, chilled water systems.   

CME provides a full service experience for the end user from the initial building audit to the startup and commissioning of equipment on site.  Contractors love to work with CME because it takes any guess work out of field measurement or equipment operation.  Lead times are reasonable, and each customer’s project is treated as a unique project, not a cookie-cutter “one size fits all”.  The technical staff and engineers are readily available to discuss any issues that may arise.   

Of all the many HVAC manufacturers with whom I have worked over a nearly 40 year career, CME stands out as a quality provider both in product and service.

We have worked with CME on several projects over the years. Their inside engineering group works with our staff in the layout and design of these projects and they have all been extremely successful. Good equipment, good design, and good people to work with. Ted, the field service technician, is fantastic to work with and there is nothing he does not know about the equipment.
