How Much Is New HVAC Technology Worth to a Facility?

When it comes time to replace HVAC equipment, the easiest route is to use the same thing that was installed last time, or as close as possible. While this approach has some merit — the FM knows the old technology — it misses the opportunities for energy savings and other performance improvement provided by advances in technology. And these days, with all the innovation in HVAC, that improvement can be substantial. But before investing in new technology, FMs should give it careful scrutiny. A three step analysis that looks at feasibility, performance, and economics can help FMs decide whether a new technology is a better fit than in-kind replacement. Click here to learn about applying that process to an HVAC equipment replacement project.
