Building retrofits

Building retrofits – when building managers decide to replace old, perhaps broken or inefficient building systems with new technologies and controls to improve energy efficiency and save money.

Oftentimes, retrofits require large upfront investment, however, a retrofit partner can help building managers to analyze the ROI prior to starting the project in order to project future cost savings and make the case for the retrofit. Retrofits can take place on a per-system basis, for instance starting with windows, or HVAC units, or lighting.
