Should you rebuild or retrofit your HVAC system?


Retrofit installation

An HVAC retrofit is a cost-effective upgrade to improve the life of many HVAC systems.

When your building’s HVAC system was first built 20 years ago, the installer used the most state-of-the-art equipment available at the time. But now your system is starting to show its age, and failing components need to be replaced.

In the meantime, technology has improved by leaps and bounds. Instead of committing to the major expense and disruption of completely replacing your entire system, retrofitting allows you to incorporate innovative technology in a much more affordable manner.

Because they know it is often the best solution, Belimo has made significant investments in developing their retrofit options. These options allow you to update a specific actuator or linkage rather than undertaking a major overhaul. Some of their popular products include:

  • Globe Valves: universal valves available for a wide variety of system manufacturers.
  • Short Stroke Valves: available in both fail safe and non-fail safe options. Custom adaptors allow valves to be integrated into almost any system.
  • Butterfly Valves: Huge variety available. Retrofitting butterfly valves is often the best solution due to their complexity and size.
  • Zone Valves: Specifically designed for TACO, Erie and Schneider valves. Fail safe and non-fail safe options available.

These retrofit options, and more, allow you to take advantage of the energy savings, quality improvements and technology advancements offered in the latest generation of HVAC valves.

Belimo makes it easy to find the right part for your system. They have developed an intuitive Retrofit App that helps you search for the exact product you need. You can also store your projects within the app, as well as access installation instructions and datasheets. The Belimo website features in-depth information on retrofit solutions, along with worksheets and technician documentation to further support your project.
