Retrofitting an existing HVAC system leads to:
Improved Productivity and Financial Savings
Refitting parts of an older, unreliable system, reduces troubleshooting time and repair costs, avoiding facility downtime that could jeopardize projects and lead to higher costs.
Energy Efficiency and Financial Savings
The HVAC system in any structure can account for up to 40% energy usage.
Replacing outdated boilers, chillers and oversized distribution fans reduces the amount of energy allocated to heating, cooling and ventilation.
Adding economizers improves a boiler’s efficiency by providing significant improvement in steam generation and response time. Economizers also reduce air conditioning usage by utilizing outside air rather than recirculated air when outdoors temperatures are cooler and dryer than indoors.
Bottom line: Lower utility bills and a reduction in carbon footprint.
Minimizing Renovation Costs
Replacing the HVAC system as part of a commercial building’s renovations isn’t always within budget. It’s not just the purchasing of a new unit that’s involved. Zoning and ductwork are already in place and installing a new HVAC system can mean remodeling expenses. Retrofitting the major components is cost effective and allows for less time investment, assisting in meeting budgets and deadlines.
