If a repair is not sufficient, retrofitting an existing HVAC system can provide many benefits, including improved performance, cost savings, and reduced renovation expenses.
By replacing damaged or outdated parts of an older HVAC system, troubleshooting time and repair costs can be reduced, which can prevent facility downtime and avoid emergency spending. This can ultimately lead to lower utility bills and a reduction in carbon footprint.
Moreover, outdated boilers, chillers, and over-sized distribution fans consume up to 40% of energy in a building, which can be reduced by replacing them with more energy-efficient models. Adding economizers can further reduce air conditioning usage by utilizing outside air instead of recirculated air, which can also improve a boiler’s efficiency.
Retrofitting major components is a cost-effective way to ensure that the HVAC system is running efficiently, saving both time and money. This is particularly useful when renovating commercial buildings since replacing the entire HVAC system can be a huge expense, involving installation and remodeling costs, even if the zoning and ductwork are already in place.
