How it works

Retro-commissioning is the process of fine-tuning building systems to ensure a building is running at its optimal performance. It addresses problems that have developed throughout a building’s life as a result of issues such as aging equipment or changes in how spaces are used by occupants. Retro-commissioning should occur on a regular basis and be part of a long-term operations and maintenance strategy for your building.

During retro-commissioning, an energy specialist identifies equipment that is not operating efficiently, systems that need to be replaced or adjusted, and other opportunities for operational improvements. The energy specialist then develops a list of recommended energy-saving improvements for your building, including easy, cost-saving measures to implement first.
