What is Retro-Commissioning?
Retro-Commissioning (ReCx) is the process of optimizing your building operations. The intent is to tune and repair the mechanical and electrical systems so they operate as effectively as possible resulting in energy savings and comfort improvement. ReCx starts with planning where a “high-level” systems inspection can identify opportunity for system improvement. A detailed diagnostics effort of the major systems – HVAC, Lighting, and Controls System – defines the specific opportunity details including savings potential and implementation cost. Implementation of identified improvements can be done with internal resources or external service providers. As improvements are implemented, verification procedures insure successful implementation. Ongoing savings tracking provides an additional level of performance verification. ReCx should result in a significant energy savings, improved occupant comfort, and reduced maintenance costs. Overall return on investment typically is about a 1 year payback.
