Reports have shown that an estimated 75% of 90 million commercial rooftop HVAC units do not run efficiently.
This is a staggering report as energy costs are a primary concern for both business owners and homeowners. Upgrading your building’s heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems can ensure that your building does not fall within this overwhelming majority. If your HVAC system is more than 10 years old, now is a good time to assess whether your system needs to be replaced before the system fails. This also give you the opportunity to research your options on what type of system would be the most efficient for your building and fits within your budget.
With proper maintenance, a building’s HVAC systems can last a long time, but outdoor and rooftop units can be especially vulnerable to damage and neglect. Rooftop units require specific care to guard against damage caused by dust, debris, and weather related events such as hail. A damaged air conditioning unit can increase the cost of operating and maintaining the system and will function less efficiently or even worse fail completely. Routine maintenance on your current system will catch any major damage or wear on your equipment so that you can do necessary replacements before complete system malfunction.
Failure to replace your aging HVAC equipment can also result in loss of temperature control, poor air quality and excessive dust. These things can lead to occupant discomfort and possible health problems for both the workers in a business or the homeowner and their family. A retrofit can sometimes help regain control of the indoor environment and a full upgrade will guarantee that your health won’t be harmed by a decrease in air quality.
Replacing your HVAC system with a new one will also ensure that you are using the most efficient equipment for your space. Older models don’t run as efficiently as the newest technology and with Energy Star equipment, you can save significant money on your utility bills both in the short and long term. Local utility companies often offer rebates for efficient system upgrades to help offset the upfront costs of a full system replacement. These rebates, coupled with long-term decrease in energy consumption, can add up to significant savings.There are many types of HVAC upgrades from which homeowners and business-owners can choose.
