Maintaining and replacing outdated HVAC equipment can be a huge investment for any building owner. The two primary methods of HVAC equipment replacement are fix-on-fail and planned replacement. The fix-on-fail scenario can lead to costly decisions. Most importantly, fix on fail or unplanned events create unwanted equipment downtime and poor comfort for tenants or customers. Either of these situations can lead to lost revenue.
With a preventive maintenance program, you may be able to extend the useful life of your equipment. Ultimately, the decision to upgrade and modernize your building through equipment replacement management is the smart choice.
Rooftop Replacement Benefits
Proactive equipment replacement management can be a wise investment. Building owners can actually add too, not subtract from the bottom line. Increased energy efficiency, building management control upgrades and reduced maintenance costs combined with creative leasing or financing terms can boost cash flow and increase building capitalization.
What is the value of planning?
- Higher efficiency equipment that provides lower energy bills and improved cash flow.
- Reduced equipment service time and expense allowing you to focus maintenance dollars on other facility improvements.
- Improved building comfort levels and control.
- Coordination of the rooftop HVAC replacement with retrofit programs enables you to maximize savings and redundant activities.
- Avoids tenant discomfort through unexpected failures.

Benefits Delivered by a Single Source – Trane
When rooftops are selected for a newly constructed building, careful consideration is given to the placement of the equipment. Structural support, ductwork distribution, access to the utilities for mechanical connection and sound levels are important elements that go into the mechanical system layout. Modification to any of these elements could create a costly reconstruction of the building. A replacement that duplicates the mechanical set up of the original system can simplify the task while saving time and labor.
Trane designs rooftop equipment with replacement in mind. With cooling capacities from 20 to 130 tons, in most applications, Trane has a direct replacement solution for your application. Whether your rooftop replacement involves a large renovation or a small number of units, allow Trane’s experienced personnel to help you manage your replacement plan.
