How a HVAC plant upgrade or retrofit can increase productivity and cut downtime

An important aspect of a HVAC plant manager’s job is minimising downtime and increasing productivity, but they face a problem if their equipment is several years old. That’s because if a competitor’s equipment is only a few months old while their own has been in situ for a number of years, they face a significant disadvantage in terms of productivity and potential downtime.

However, by upgrading existing equipment, plant managers can bring it in line with newer machines without the need for a complete replacement. That’s where Gibbons come in.

By using state-of-the-art energy calculators, our engineers can demonstrate whether the current system is less efficient than an upgraded one would be. If this is the case, a retrofit can be undertaken to modify equipment and improve economy without the need for a complete replacement. Very often, only certain components within, for example, an air handling unit (AHU) are subject to wear and much of the structure can remain in excellent order after years of service.
