How can you take advantage of a seemingly ordinary rooftop replacement?
Packaged rooftop unit replacements often offer opportunities beyond the immediate need to replace end-of-life equipment. Important benefits to consider when selecting an appropriate replacement unit include reduced maintenance expenses, increased efficiency, reduced carbon footprint and upgraded capabilities.
It’s critical to make sure that your replacement aligns with upcoming regulatory changes, including U.S. Department of Energy increased efficiency standards effective Jan. 1, 2023, which impact packaged rooftop units. Considering regulatory changes now avoids surprises later. Taking this broader view ensures you take full advantage of the opportunity and get the most from your new rooftop unit.

Making decisions sooner and considering broader benefits will help mitigate these risks leading to the right choice for your replacement.
