Retrofitting Your HVAC System

Retrofitting is one of RP Carder Mechanical’s specialties.   Retrofitting existing HVAC systems with new components takes creativity and problem-solving — two areas where we believe we are best.   We enjoy each unique project, large or small, because they all have unique parameters and challenges to work through.  And, we love seeing completed project that precisely meets our customer’s needs within their range of affordability.

Retrofitting is both an art and a science.  Because of the complexity and range of choices in an HVAC retrofit it is wise to choose an experienced contractor.   RP Carder Mechanical has a passion for retrofit projects and has been in the HVAC retrofit business for more than 15 years.

Most systems, such as furnaces and boilers, can be retrofitted to increase their efficiency and to reduce their maintenance and repair costs. These upgrades improve the safety and efficiency of otherwise sound, older systems.  The costs of retrofits should be carefully weighed against the cost of a new, especially if replacement is likely within a few years or if you wish to switch to a different system for other reasons, such as adding air conditioning.

Other retrofits can include:

  • Programmable Thermostats
  • Upgrading and custom duct work in forced air systems
  • Adding zone control for hot-water systems
