We like to think differently and look beyond traditional equipment replacement based energy efficiency. Retro-commissioning (RCx) is the process of optimizing the operation of building systems to improve efficiency and comfort.
RCx begins with an in depth evaluation of the operation of a buildings mechanical and electrical systems. Following the investigation, identified measures are implemented to optimize the building. Since RCx doesn’t require major equipment replacement, it is typically very cost effective. Typical RCx measures include control algorithm improvements, sensor, valve and damper calibrations and other low cost improvements.
Successful RCx requires a thorough understanding of building science and mechanical systems. Our staff includes Professional Engineers and Certified Building Commissioning Professionals that have evaluated and optimized over 100 buildings.
