Retrofitting existing buildings can often improve energy performance and sustainability. It is also typically a more cost-effective solution than to completely build a new structure. Commercial buildings use a very large amount of energy compared to residential homes. They also are larger in size and contain more components to energy systems. This is why it is important to consult with commercial retrofitting professionals to help lower your costs of heating, cooling, and lighting, while minimizing energy consumption as well.
Plumbing Master Systems, Inc. (PMS) has helped businesses all over South Florida retrofit existing buildings in order to lower costs, increase value in the building, and increase the longevity of the building. In addition, retrofitting contributes to a more comfortable and higher-quality environment for those living or working within a building.
Once retrofitting has been identified as an ideal solution for a particular building, our team of experts will develop the best plan of action to implement that results in improved sustainability and efficient energy use.
Types of Improvements Involved in Retrofitting
There are various avenues of retrofitting that our team will look into when inspecting commercial buildings. Some of the more common ones include:
Heating & Cooling Systems
Heating and cooling systems typically use the most amount of energy in commercial buildings. Our technicians will review your current energy use, and then install energy efficient lighting where possible. We will also determine whether it is possible for natural ventilation as an alternative to lower heating and cooling loads. Other options that may be possible are to install solar shading devices for certain windows or doors, or to install high-performance windows in place of existing windows. These can also help with noise reduction.
Energy & Water Systems
We will inspect your energy and water systems to see if they are functioning efficiently. If they are not operating to the proper standard, we will upgrade your systems in order to minimize consumption.
Debris & Waste
We will look into the current recycling process to see if there is a way to reduce the amount of waste that is sent out.
Our roofing experts will determine whether installing a green roof or cool roof are better options than your existing one.
