Retrofit construction in LA is more suitable than reconstructing huge buildings to make them more energy-efficient. Retrofitting old buildings could somehow decrease energy consumption by up to 1.3%.
Thus, if you own an old building, you might want to consider getting it retrofitted.
Why Choose Retrofit Construction in LA?
Several reasons building owners choose to retrofit. These reasons will vary from one person to another.
Most owners want lower utility bills. You are guaranteed energy saving. However, how much you’ll save will depend on the retrofit level.
Nonetheless, retrofitting can help you save on utility bills over time.
And if you own an apartment building and you choose to retrofit it, you can attract more clients. Many occupants would pay more just to live in an energy-efficient apartment.
You can attract them by advertising your apartment as a smart building that uses technology to help reduce carbon footprint. You can charge them high rental rates. In return, they get a better living standard.
Having a smart building will also give you a competitive advantage. As you spend less on energy compared to your competitors, you don’t have to worry about a heftier maintenance budget.
Your building also increases in value. Keep in mind that more and more people are looking for an energy-efficient, environment-friendly building.
That’s why many experts predicted that the smart building market would grow to 105 billion dollars by 2024.
Another reason retrofitting is ideal is that it improves the durability of the building. It eliminates issues with mold and rotting in walls.
It improves comfort by adding better insulation and seal.
Furthermore, it improves indoor air quality. Retrofitting involves air sealing and ventilation. It reduces dust and allergens in the air.
However, retrofitting an old building in LA comes without challenges. Many building owners can’t push through their plans to retrofit their apartments, for instance, because they lack proper documentation.
Keep in mind that contractors that offer to retrofit require many documents to give them a wide view of how your building elements work together. However, we can resolve this issue.
