Mechanical Retrofits Can Yield Savings

Your building’s mechanical systems consume up to 60% of the structure’s total supplied electricity and most buildings waste at least 10% additional energy due to inefficient HVAC systems. As utility costs increase, owners and operators can take control by implementing strategies that reduce the power consumption of mechanical systems.

Our licensed professionals perform energy audits that identify financially efficient mechanical upgrades. We offer concise recommendations and actionable data, supported by a thorough analysis of total life cycle cost. Allana Buick & Bers’ mechanical retrofit and consulting services include:

  • Building Automation System Integration
  • Chiller Plant Optimization
  • Code Review and Litigation Support
  • Commissioning and Retro-Commissioning (RCx)
  • Construction Permitting
  • Design and Construction Phase Services
  • Energy Master Planning
  • HVAC Equipment Upgrades
  • Mechanical System Evaluations and Benchmarking
  • MEP Engineering and Design
  • Solar HVAC

How can a building owner avoid the endless cycle of overhauling and retrofitting older equipment? We believe that state-of-the-art mechanical equipment and control systems offer the lowest life cycle investment and best return as repair modifications reduce overall performance of the system over time. Allana Buick & Bers’ total life cycle cost analysis indicates the most financially efficient path for your building.

As part of our comprehensive energy audit, we gather both energy data from mechanical systems and information from facilities staff. Using both sets of data we identify key areas where power consumption can be reduced and provide energy conservation retrofit recommendations.

In our experience, many buildings can achieve payback and ROI in a short period of time due to significant rebate opportunities from local utilities. Our experienced staff will help you secure the greatest possible savings. Allana Buick & Bers’ HVAC equipment upgrades include:
