Retrofitting vs. Replacement: Which Is better for Your HVAC System?

While retrofitting—installing new or modified parts that could allow an HVAC system to continue functioning without a complete replacement—is not the right answer in every scenario, it’s certainly a service to consider if you have an aging HVAC system and are considering replacement. It’s particularly attractive if you have a very tight budget. Keep reading to learn more about this service and its benefits.

Get More Life from Your System

This is one of the biggest reasons that both homeowners and business owners choose retrofitting over system replacement. If it’s possible to extend the life of your current HVAC system and your budget isn’t allowing the purchase of a brand new system right now, this can be an excellent option for you.

Improve Your Comfort

A failing or inefficient HVAC system is not going to provide you with the consistent temperatures and controlled humidity that an otherwise well-functioning system will. Depending on what retrofit options you choose, you may notice fewer drafts, less escaping air, and possibly even less noise that often comes from an aging system.

Quick ROI

Retrofitting your current HVAC equipment is going to involve a small portion of the cost compared to replacing the entire system. This means that in most cases you’ll probably achieve a return on your investment much quicker than you would have by replacing the system.

Potential Rebates

Homeowners everywhere are recognizing benefits from making energy upgrades, and many localities are offering incentives and rebates for these upgrades. Be sure to check with your utility company to see if they offer anything by way of savings should you decide to retrofit your system to make it more efficient!
