Hi-Cool Engineering Corporation is an ESCO (Energy Service Company) accredited by the Department of Energy. We design, build, manage, and maintain sustainable cooling systems for commercial and industrial establishments. Rising prices of energy and newly implemented Green Building regulations have increased the need for greater building efficiency. Our 40-year partnership with Hitachi, a global leader in air-conditioning systems has paved the way for us to help government and businesses scale up solutions to cut energy consumption and in turn reduce carbon emissions.
Hi-cool is the exclusive distributor in the Philippines of Hitachi Water-cooled Large Capacity Screw Type Packaged Air-Conditioning Equipment fully manufactured in Hitachi Shimizu, Japan. Through our design and engineering innovation our roster of clients composed of shopping malls, high-rise buildings, theaters, supermarkets, manufacturing plants and the like have been enjoying significant savings in power consumption some of whom have been bestowed the Don Emilio Abello Energy Efficiency Award by the government. Moreover productivity is also improved as the ideal thermal comfort and indoor air quality are constantly achieved. Commercial buildings especially, have enjoyed a very pleasant advantage of having 50% savings in the area requirement vs conventional systems. These freed up spaces have been converted thereafter to other income-generating purposes.
Hi-Cool Engineering Corporation is determined to deliver top class execution in all its projects and assure clients the highest level of service and commitment. This is first and foremost possible because the name Hitachi is synonymous to quality, reliability and durability worldwide. We believe energy efficiency should be mainstreamed as the first fuel of the economy and we aspire to be a global Filipino Engineering and ESCO who leads the way towards energy security and a low-carbon economy through sustainable HVAC solutions in the country and the Asia-Pacific region.
