About Mechanical Enlightenment Inc.


About Us

Mechanical Enlightenment was founded in 2007 as a professional mechanical & plumbing estimating service company. Founder, Ron Soltis first established Electrical Enlightenment in 2000 and later expanded the company’s services into the Mechanical and Plumbing markets by creating Mechanical Enlightenment Inc. We offer a broad spectrum of services dedicated to the needs of the mechanical, fire sprinkler, hydronic, and plumbing contractors.

While partnering with our company, you can feel confident that your out-sourced estimator is competent having gone through standardized training and will keep you informed at all times. Our estimators use the Wendes programs WenDuct® and WendPipe® for mechanical estimating. WenDuct® uses SMACNA labor units and WendPipe® is based off of MCAA labor units.

Multiple cross checks are used for accuracy throughout the estimating procedure on all take-off worksheets.

To learn more about each specific service, please see the Estimating Services tab or call us today.

Mechanical Enlightenment offers you the solutions for all your mechanical, ventilation, HVAC and plumbing estimating needs.™

    ELECTRICAL ENLIGHTENMENT WAS FOUNDED

    The begin of a great adventure

    Electrical Enlightenment was founded in June of 2000 by Ron Soltis. The company engaged in electrical contractor training throughout the United States. The training was focused on contractors needs for business development, labor management, and estimating. In 2001 a shift in the U.S. economy had changed the contractor’s needs for training to quality estimating. The shift to providing estimating services to electrical contractors was immediate. Electrical Enlightenment turned its focus to electrical estimating.
