    HVAC Air Handling Systems - Rebuild vs. Replace

    • AHU upgrades as well as most infrastructure upgrades are ideal for rebuild versus replacement when all items are evaluated; downtime, maintenance cost, performance or space use (more airflow?), energy and noise, etc.
    • Obstacles such as maintenance access, replacement access – doors/elevators, electrical service, new code complaint equipment size, crane location/size and capital cost all keep these units on the deferred maintenance list.
    • The traditional approach of design-bid-build often lends itself to a larger project with significant scope creep and full unit replacement.
    • Significant cost savings (often 50%) and downtime can be realized by rebuilding most units in place.
    • Facility downtime is also less of an issue. Mechanical Sales has completed many of these projects locally.


    Please join us as we will review this process and a few examples on Tuesday February 12 at 3:30 PM.  Refreshments and drinks will be available.
