Even with a dedicated maintenance team, building system performance can decline over the years, which can compromise comfort levels and lead to higher energy costs. Building recommissioning is a comprehensive process applied to buildings that have already undergone building commissioning.
Declining building performance and the onset of chronic problems can occur over time and commonly arise when a building undergoes a change in use or ownership. Recommissioning provides a systematic approach to discovering and solving building problems. The end result is a building that functions according to its original design specifications and owner’s operational requirements.
A study performed at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory for the California Energy Commission revealed that building recommissioning increases energy savings through improved building system operation. On average, recommissioning pays for itself in just over one year.
Key Benefits of Recommissioning
- Healthier indoor air quality
- Energy savings
- Extended equipment life
- Fewer maintenance concerns
- Improved comfort levels
