Whether it’s the age of your equipment or lack of maintenance, operating systems can easily slip into underperformance or stop performing at all. Don’t be caught by surprise when your energy costs escalate!

When it comes to commissioning a commercial building, we’ve heard all the reasons for delay. It’s going to cost too much… We don’t have the time… We can patch things together for now… We’ve been given the run-around before and don’t know which provider to trust… While we certainly appreciate these concerns, the benefits of commissioning, retrocommissioning, and recommissioning are clear and undeniable. By addressing some common worries, we will hopefully encourage owners, managers, and operators to take a major step forward toward saving money, creating or maintaining an efficient building, increasing property value, and providing a healthy and comfortable environment for all.
