Mechanical Retrofit, New Installation, Replacements and Repairs for Commercial or Industrial Facility Owners and Managers in Silicon Valley

Regardless of the type of occupant, commercial or industrial facility owners and managers in Silicon Valley can spend a great deal of their maintenance budgets on the HVAC and refrigeration systems in any given year. With the competing demands on scarce resources, business leaders look for the most economical option in deciding what type of action to take when trouble arises. They also may consider the option with the least environmental impact. Companies that specialize in mechanical retrofitting can provide these highly complicated services.

New Installation

Whether installing a new HVAC system or refrigeration system or specific components such as a chiller or cooling tower, property managers and owners rely on mechanical retrofitters to professionally install the components. In some cases of mechanical breakdown, there are few options other than installation of a new HVAC system. In these situations, much of the duct work and power source lines can remain in place. Other parts of the system will be retrofit into the existing building and mechanical system.

Replacement

In other instances, the retrofitter may find that it is only necessary to replace a specific part of the system. Identifying the area of the system that is not functioning properly, replacing a worn or broken part may be a small expense while keeping the majority of existing system. This may extend the life of the mechanical system and lessen the impact that the production of a new system would have on the company’s carbon footprint.

Repairs

Mechanical retrofitters might also repair the HVAC and refrigeration systems in the facility. Often, when there is trouble with an existing system, the system components can be repaired instead of replacing or buying a new system. The retrofitters’ knowledge of the components allow for a qualified diagnosis of the problem and recommendation for repair. Of the options, repairing the system is the most environmentally friendly.

Whether the decision is to install new equipment, replace components or repair the existing system, using a qualified mechanical retrofitting specialist will provide the assurance that work done on the mechanical system is in keeping with industry standards. Using quality parts and systems with increased efficiencies help keep operational costs lower. They can also have the added benefit of keeping the environmental impacts lower.

Experience and Safety Matters When Opting For New Design Build Mechanical and Plumbing in San Jose

When it comes to new design build for plumbing and mechanical projects in San Jose, there’s no replacement for experience and safety. Unless you have a contractor with the knowledge of how to handle the design build of mechanical and plumbing systems based on having done it many times before, you can end up with many problems, including injuries to people using the facility. That’s why when you are trying to decide on a contractor to do that type of work, two of the most important questions you should ask are how much experience they have doing that type of work and what type of safety record they have on their projects.

 

Why Experience Matters

New plumbing and mechanical design builds can be very complex. There are a number of challenges that can arise that are not covered in schools and training classes. So while it is important the contractor has the proper training and licenses to do the job, that’s not enough. You need to choose a company that has encountered the many problems that can pop up and found effective ways to deal with them. Classroom trained contractors know a lot of theory. But experience with the practical application of that information is the only way to be sure they will know how to do the job right.

 

Safety First

The safety of the workers and the people using the mechanical and plumbing new builds has to be the contractor’s number one priority. Many companies boast about how fast they can get the job done and how good it will look. But if contractors involved in the new design build don’t have a track record for doing the job safely and having the completed project work well without the people using it getting injured, then they are not the right choice for the project. One accident with a mechanical or plumbing new build can leave the project owner with a major problem. One that can cost them lots of money and ruin their reputation.

 

The Right Choice

For people looking for contractors to handle new design mechanical and plumbing builds, making the right choice is crucial. People’s health and safety are at stake and they’ll be held responsible and liable for any mistakes made by the contractor they hire. Therefore it’s vital to verify they have adequate experience and a track record for safety before you hire them.
