What is a residential HVAC retrofit?

HVAC technology is something that continues to improve. It’s true that in 2023 we are using the same methods for heating and cooling homes as we did fifty years ago. But what’s changed is technology.

Upgrading to a more efficient HVAC system has many benefits. However, compatibility can be an issue depending on the age of your home and the HVAC system. Fortunately, retrofitting your HVAC system can be the solution.

Here we explain more about HVAC retrofits and when it might be the right option for you.

HVAC retrofit

An old home with an old HVAC system that may be on its last legs requires replacement. Unfortunately, replacing the entire HVAC system in your old home with a new, energy-efficient model can seem like a significant and expensive job. Sometimes parts of your old HVAC system, like the ductwork, won’t be compatible with today’s technology.

With retrofitting, we can take care of this problem. Fagnan’s Furnace Service can replace and upgrade specific HVAC system components and keep others. Then we can ensure your home will be heated and cooled using the latest technology while minimizing the amount of work needed to make this happen.

At Fagnan’s Furnace Service, we work with sheet metal. As a result, our skilled professionals can retrofit ducts and other components to make your HVAC retrofit possible.

Benefits of an HVAC Retrofit

We’ve already mentioned that replacing an entire HVAC system is a major project in older homes. It might include gutting parts of your property to install the new system. Fortunately, HVAC retrofitting with professionals like Fagnan’s can avoid a disruptive renovation.

Heating and air conditioning systems have a decent shelf life of about 25 years. After this, parts of the system may start to malfunction, but this doesn’t necessarily mean you have to replace your whole system. Sometimes a retrofit is a more efficient way of replacing parts and upgrading the technology.

Furthermore, with newer HVAC technology installed in your home, your system will make considerable gains in the efficiency department. For example, a new furnace or air conditioner means your energy usage won’t skyrocket, and you will also see savings on your energy bills.
