Equipment Replacement or RetroFit
Has your heating or cooling system seen better days? Maybe it's time for an upgrade! According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, approximately half of all commercial buildings were built prior to 1980. As those buildings aged, so too did their air conditioning! The same applies to older residential buildings as well. As an experienced heating and air conditioning company in Knoxville, TN we can advise you on the best course of action, whether that means replacing some of your existing equipment with a newer model or retrofitting additional parts to add features that were not available at the time of installation.
At Gent Heating & Cooling we have always prided ourselves on our commitment to customer service. We will always work with you to decide whether replacement or retrofitting is the best return on your investment.
Retrofit Vs Replacement: What is the Difference?
When deciding if you need to replace or retrofit your HVAC equipment, there are several things to consider. One of the main things is always going to be the return on your investments. Look at all of your costs including installation, running costs, and future expenses. Electrical equipment becomes more inefficient as it gets older. That means future running costs will rise. However, retrofitting energy-efficient items to the existing system could have the opposite effect.
You will also want to think about how old your existing system is. Technology ages and does not keep pace with the latest innovations in heating and cooling systems. However, it may still have some life left in it, which would make it suitable for retrofitting. However, if it is too old this may not be possible and a replacement is the best option.
