May 2019 – Replacing your building’s HVAC system doesn’t have to be as difficult as you might think. In fact, it might be an opportunity for a complete upgrade for all your building systems.
At Tandem Chillers we take great pride in being a reliable partner in your attempt to upgrade your building’s HVAC system. Our team of chiller retrofitting specialists will help you come up with the right plan to make sure you have an easy and successful chiller retrofitting project.
For this particular project for a chiller retrofit in a New York building, the retrofit required a total of 16 chillers for 480 tons of cooling. With these new energy efficient chillers, the building owners can count on significant savings that should make up for any disruptive costs incurred while the chillers are installed.
The job of replacing a building ‘s HVAC system is one that maintenance and engineering managers tend to avoid as long as possible. But it doesn’t have to be that way. If you’re a commercial building owner or a facility manager/director, the chances are quite high that you probably need to replace your air conditioning system. With a full-load energy efficiency ratings lower with the new scroll chillers, they can offset part of the cost incurred by installing a new HVAC system.
While most HVAC systems were installed without any thought of having to replace them in the future, a chiller retrofit often means working in small mechanical rooms in the basement, or in hard to reach areas of the building.
With Tandem Chillers this might be an opportunity to upgrade your building’s entire system. Compared to 10 to 20 years ago, retrofitting chillers is easier, more cost effective, and more beneficial than ever before. Today there are chiller retrofit solutions that allow you to modernize your HVAC system while keeping installation costs low and improving energy efficiency.
With our help the disruptive installation of a chiller retrofit will be kept to a minimum. And by looking at other things like piping, electrical and lighting systems, and insulation, you can find opportunities to reduce the overall building load resulting in smaller equipment and less operating hours, saving even more money. Taking a comprehensive look at all your building’s systems can provide a greater impact in reducing costs and improving operation than by just looking at the chiller alone.
With good innovative planning, practical building improvements, and a trusted partner in the process, you can have both an easy and successful chiller retrofitting project.
