Commercial HVAC Retrofits
A retrofit HVAC system is easily the most effective way for a building owner who owns an aging facility to reduce energy costs and extend the life of their system. If you own a building and are experiencing rising energy costs, your HVAC system is likely to blame.
Before you jump to the conclusion that the entire system needs to be replaced (usually an expensive process), consider retrofitting as the best possible solution. There are a number of reasons to consider a change for your HVAC system.
Indoor Air Quality – One of an HVAC system’s responsibilities is to manage the indoor air quality of a facility. From controlling humidity to eliminating harmful allergens or contaminants, the only thing standing between you, your staff, or your customers and the outside air is the HVAC system. As the system ages, it may become less effective at regulating indoor air quality.
Effective Heating and Cooling – Is everyone inside your building complaining that the air is too hot or too cool regardless of what the thermostat says? Old systems are less effective at regulating temperature. When retrofitted with modern equipment, however, these problems will all but vanish.
Rising Costs – Both energy and repair costs are bound to rise as a system begins to age. With less efficient operation, your HVAC could be working harder than it needs to. Modern equipment is far more efficient than the technology of decades past and will make your system more resilient against failure.
So, what does a retrofitting project look like?
Evaluating Your Needs
First, Service Unlimited technicians will inspect your current system, diagnose potential issues, and determine what equipment needs to be repaired, replaced, or augmented with new technology. Part of this comes down to “right-sizing” equipment so that it is capable of efficiently controlling the temperature and air quality in your facility.
If a system was too small or too large when it was first installed, or if additions have been made to the facility, retrofitting will correct this issue.
Replace Old Equipment
Older facilities were often built in such a way that the building was actually constructed around the HVAC system itself. Removing this old equipment requires experienced technicians who are familiar with old technology in addition to new.
Once old equipment has been removed, new units can be added and integrated together with your remaining units. Many HVAC providers will remove more than is required, both to make the process more expensive and because they may not understand how best to integrate new and old technology together. Service Unlimited is focused on saving our clients money and providing an ideal solution for the new facility. If you are wondering why an old piece of equipment needs to be replaced while another can stay, we’ll take the time to explain.

Service Unlimited is qualified to update your system if a replacement isn’t necessary.
Multi-Zone HVAC Retrofit
Retrofitting is ideal for facilities that have either added additional spaces or would like to independently heat or cool specific areas. In the former case, new equipment can be integrated into your system instead of effectively creating an entirely separate system for the new space.
In the latter, modern HVAC technology and controls can allow for precise control over different areas of your facility. Essentially, this allows your HVAC system to scale and change as your organization evolves. If an area of the building is suddenly seeing an increase or a decrease in its population, modern HVAC can accommodate that change.
A Core Service
Some HVAC contractors will claim to offer retrofitting services, and they may be able to replace certain pieces of equipment, but a holistic retrofitting solution is one of our core services at Service Unlimited. We are capable of using innovative solutions to use available technology rather than simply throwing out the entire system and effectively doing an HVAC replacement job.
In other words, our solutions are designed to last for the long term. Contact us today to schedule some time where we can come take a look at your system. Energy efficiency and cost savings are right around the corner.
