Air Handling Unit (AHU) is a central heating and cooling system used in buildings to control the temperature and air quality. AHUs are commonly used in commercial and industrial buildings, such as offices, schools, and hospitals. They can also be used in residential buildings, although they are less common. The refurbishment of an existing AHU is important to reduce energy consumption and improve the overall performance of the HVAC system. This may involve replacing worn or damaged components, adding new features, or upgrading the control system. There are several advantages to refurbishing an AHU, including cost savings, energy efficiency, improved indoor air quality, and increased longevity of the unit.

Cost savings
Instead of purchasing and installing a new unit, refurbishing an existing unit can save a significant amount of money. This is because the cost of purchasing a new unit can be quite high, especially for larger commercial or industrial buildings. In addition, the cost of installation and labor for a new unit can also be quite high. By refurbishing an existing unit, these costs can be greatly reduced.

Energy efficiency
As units age, their efficiency can decrease due to wear and tear on components, or because of outdated technology. By refurbishing an existing unit, efficiency can be improved through the replacement of worn or outdated components or the installation of new technology. This can lead to significant energy savings, as well as a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.

Improved indoor air quality
As units age, they can become clogged with dust and debris, which can lead to poor air quality. By refurbishing an existing unit, the filters and other components can be cleaned or replaced, improving the air quality in the building. This is particularly important in buildings such as hospitals, schools, and other public buildings where the health and well-being of occupants is a top priority.

Increase the longevity of the unit
By upgrading and updating an existing unit, it can be made to run more efficiently, which can lead to a longer lifespan. This means that the unit will need to be replaced less frequently, saving money and reducing the need for additional installation and labor.

Make sure that the refurbishment is carried out by a qualified and experienced technician, as the process can be complex and requires a good understanding of HVAC systems. Trosten Industries is your trusted partner providing high-grade air handling units customized to your needs.
