When a repair is not enough, retrofitting an existing HVAC system to replace damaged/old parts can lead to:
Improved Performance, Eliminating Emergency Spending.
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.
Saving Energy and Expense.
The HVAC system in any structure, from corporate offices to restaurants, can account for up to 40% energy usage.
Replacing outdated boilers, chillers and over-sized distribution fans reduces the amount of energy allocated to heating, cooling and ventilation.
Adding economizers reduces air conditioning usage by utilizing outside air rather than recirculated air when outdoors temperatures are cooler and dryer than indoors. Economizers also improve a boiler’s efficiency by providing significant improvement in steam generation and response time.
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 can be a huge expense. Besides the cost of the new unit, there are installation costs and remodeling expenses even if the zoning and ductwork are already in place. Retrofitting the major components is a cost effective way to ensure your HVAC system is up and running efficiently, saving time AND money, so that you stay within budget, while helping you meet your deadlines.
