How an Energy Retrofit Benefits You, Your Business, and The Future

Naveco Power completed a retrofit of a 65,000 square-foot office building, including energy-efficient lighting, fresh air ventilation system, and more. This retrofit reduced the building’s energy consumption by 50% and reduced CO2 emissions by 30%. An energy retrofit can benefit you, your business, and our future. This is done by reducing energy consumption and CO2 emissions, thereby increasing overall energy efficiency. This will lower your energy use, which in turn lowers your overall costs. An energy retrofit will also garner public attention and piece of mind. Naveco Power is here to help you with your energy retrofit to bring your building into a greener tomorrow.

What is an Energy Retrofit?

An energy retrofit can entail many things, depending on your building and budget. Significant building-envelope upgrades, including removal and replacement of all air-sealing and insulation systems, windows, doors, and skylights are very common. An upgrade of entire heating and cooling systems, including duct-system redesign, zoning, thermostat replacement, and installation of on-demand water heaters and heat pumps is also a staple. Renewable energy use and on-site power generation through the installation of photovoltaic solar panels, windmills, and solar water heaters are an aspect of going above and beyond with your energy retrofit. Naveco Power is doing this through the installation of solar panels on the roof of our building. There are provincial government subsidies that help you afford an energy retrofit as well. Retrofits not only benefit you but also lower the demand on the public grid as your building requires less energy. The energy will be used elsewhere instead.

How Energy Retrofits Benefit the Environment

As mentioned above, an energy retrofit will reduce your overall carbon footprint. In that way, your retrofit will directly benefit the environment for the long-term. The changes with heat and air will result in a more efficient heating and cooling system, requiring less energy. Changes in insulation further ensure the efficiency of your heating and cooling systems. Using technology to strategically time the use of the energy in your building for things including heat and lighting further reduce the energy you use. On-demand water heaters and lower flow toilets and showers result in lower water consumption and higher efficiency. These all have benefits financially, but they all also benefit the environment and lower your carbon footprint substantially. By coupling a retrofit with renewable energy like solar panels, you can go carbon neutral.

How Energy Retrofits Benefit Your Business

Financially, you and your business have everything to gain from an energy retrofit. Reduction in your consumption of energy and water through efficiency upgrades can lower your energy use by up to 70% in some instances. Therefore, there are clear savings on your utility bills. These savings will help cover the cost of your retrofit and will eventually earn you money in the long term. Often, retrofits result in a need for less maintenance, which will also save you money. It can also mean savings like fewer replacement lightbulbs as energy-efficient bulbs often last longer, especially when running efficiently and only when you need them. These savings, coupled with the benefits of a renewable energy system if you choose to utilize one, can earn you enormous savings and possibly earnings. Naveco Power offers affordable services that can help you do both. With Neveco Power, you can save the planet while saving money.

An energy retrofit also has other benefits. Like installing solar panels or using renewable energy, a retrofit can earn you public attention and interest. While this may mean a boost in how the public sees you and your business, it may also attract new investment. An energy retrofit also offers opportunities for you to educate others on the benefits of energy efficiency. This can help local renewable energy companies and further the cause for energy efficiency and renewable energy. These represent just some of the benefits that come with an energy retrofit.
