Rogers and Sons offers a turn key solution so you don't have to be your own GC.
With energy costs skyrocketing and energy efficiency a top concern, it's likely it's time to review your building or apartment's HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) system and controls. Retrofitting an existing commercial HVAC system can be challenging, but the results are worth the effort.
Depending on your business or home, your HVAC system can be a significant part of your budget and an area where you spend a lot of your time considering. We offer indoor air quality products to make your home or place of business a clean and healthy environment.
Modern HVAC systems can dramatically improve the overall cost and energy efficiency of a building or home's HVAC system. We specialize in increasing comfort, minimizing HVAC repairs, and improving indoor air quality. These benefits, along with the savings in energy and repair costs, make retrofitting your system a sensible choice.
Aside from cost and energy efficiency, retrofitting your existing commercial heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems allows us to customize your building's HVAC to meet the unique needs of your business. We can customize retrofits to meet the needs of any business - from data centers to schools to biotech research labs.
For residential buildings, we work with our customers to not only design the most efficient retrofit solution but also to help them get the latest energy rebates offered by local utilities.
What does retrofitting mean in the HVAC industry?
Cooling and heating systems can be installed in two ways: in advance, i.e. prepared in the design phase and installed during the construction of the building, or afterward, in a finished residential or commercial space.
Air conditioning planned in advance has more advantages, but unfortunately, it is not always possible. The good news, however, is that it is possible to think of a complex system, i.e. a smart building, which will bring significant savings to users.
The process of retrofitting is as follows:
- Assess the building's characteristics, which may include an on-site inspection and the use of various technological methods such as thermal scanning. This can identify where air is escaping the building and where there are common areas that do not require separate HVAC units. The survey also includes a review of needs, as the customer will be satisfied if occupants can always be in the right environment to suit their thermal comfort.
- Taking into account the use of the spaces, and together with the above aspects, the right technology should be developed to ensure adequate and uniform airflow.
- The required technology will be installed in a manner that minimizes the disruption of the retrofit process to the activities of the occupants or workers inside. This includes installing outdoor and indoor units, temperature controllers, thermostats, and wiring between them. Modern HVAC systems can be integrated with building automation systems, which can mean remote and continuous control, as well as automatic control.
A complex HVAC system can result in savings of up to 20-40%, which can be used in all months of the year (not just in the summer heat). If you're looking to make these significant savings with a new HVAC installation, contact us today!
