The process of Retro commissioning a facility is essential for optimizing energy performance and ensures that all building systems perform together according to the building design intended and the owner’s operational needs.
Retro commissioning is a systematic process for identifying less-than-optimal performance in an existing facility’s equipment, lighting, control and process systems, and making necessary adjustments to promote energy savings. Whereas retrofitting involves replacing outdated equipment, Retro commissioning focuses on improving the efficiency of existing equipment. Retro commissioning projects can produce an average savings of 5-15% of total facility energy costs.
Many companies have significantly more savings than this estimate. These upgrades typically pay for themselves in energy savings alone within an average of less than two years. Retro commissioning Program projects are often combined with retrofitting efforts.
