Retrofit or Replace Roof Top Air Conditioning Units?

RTU Retrofit or Replace?

New technologies for replacement and retrofits of existing rooftop air conditioning units (RTUs) offer tremendous savings opportunities. To help take advantage of those opportunities, DOE’s Advanced RTU Campaign (ARC) has developed a checklist built around a streamlined RTU evaluation methodology.  

Don't pay RTU replacement premiums this summer


Three Step RTU Planned Replacement Program:

A successful planned RTU replacement program saves energy and avoids costly emergency replacements. This approach allows standardization of equipment features, streamlines the process, reduces costs, and provides higher quality results.

If your HVAC equipment is nearing its end of life, about 12 to 15 years, and if it fails in the middle of the summer, you will likely end up paying a premium to repair or replace the unit.  The replacement unit may not have the right features, or even be the right size, because the need to restore air conditioning could force you to make short-term trade-offs.  Don't let this happen to you.

Poor Indoor Air Quality? 6 RTU Risk Factors

After eighteen years performing Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) assessments in commercial buildings, I've seen more than a few repeat air quality offenders.  The overwhelming leader in degrading perceived IAQ is mold and associated "musty odors."

What is the Advanced RTU Campaign?

The Advanced RTU Campaign (ARC) encourages commercial building owners and operators to replace their old RTUs with more efficient units or to retrofit their RTUs with advanced controls in order to take advantage of these benefits.
