3 Reasons to Retrofit Your Commercial HVAC Systems

No matter how new or powerful your heating and air conditioning and energy management systems are, there will come a time when you need to replace them. However, you can keep your commercial HVAC systems running better for longer with a high-quality retrofit from expert HVAC companies like Ambient Mechanical.

If you think retrofitting HVAC equipment is just a half-measure instead of waiting to do a full replacement of your heating and air conditioning, here are some important reasons you should retrofit your commercial HVAC systems sooner rather than later.


Save Energy

If your aging HVAC equipment is a drain on your energy management, you can solve the issue quickly and efficiently with a retrofit. While results can vary, by making your commercial HVAC systems more energy efficient, you can garner energy savings up to 30% or even 40%.


Qualify for Government Programs for HVAC Maintenance

Did you know there are a plethora of government incentives to reward businesses for improving their energy management and increasing their energy efficiency? Tax credits and rebates are available for HVAC repair at the federal, provincial and municipal levels of government, depending on your jurisdiction.

Better Tenant Retention/Worker Productivity

The ultimate purpose of heating and air conditioning systems are to keep tenants and workers comfortable. However, older commercial HVAC systems will sputter and break down with increasing frequency as they get older, requiring longer and longer periods of down time. Definitely not an ideal situation on sweltering summer days!

In addition to saving costs on HVAC repair with a retrofit, you won't have to worry as much about tenants jumping ship to a newer building with newer heating and air conditioning systems. Plus, it's been shown that personal comfort is key to maximizing worker efficiency and resident tenancy.
