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?
