The Ideal Solution for Commercial HVAC Fan Replacement Applications

By Comprehensive Energy Services on Oct 18, 2018 2:45:00 PM

Aging Central Air Handling Units (AHUs) life expectancy can greatly benefit through Q-Pac fan retrofit solutions.  Common considerations:

  1. Are the AHU chamber casings in good shape?  Are they double wall?  
  2. Is it time to replace compacted cooling and heating coils.
  3. Are you tired of the supply fan maintenance issues shutting down business.
  4. Was the mechanical room built  around the AHU?   Unit accessibility issues in limited access mechanical rooms often constrain replacement options.  

Q-Pac Fan Retrofits are very competitive when looking at first cost, but the real value is downstream in maintenance, dependability,  and controls and energy management benefits.
