System Commissioning

Experienced System Commissioning and Retro-Commissioning for Energy Reduction and Occupant Comfort

Advances in modern day Heating Ventilating and Air Conditioning (HVAC) Systems and Building Automation Systems have helped to improve building comfort and have decreased building energy consumption. However, over time, systems may move away from their original specifications, thereby deteriorating comfort levels and increasing energy consumption.

CM3’s retro-commissioning for existing units and commissioning of new systems ensure that your system is operating as it was originally intended.

Our experienced Technical Field Specialists will take a holistic view of the system, looking at plans, taking readings, and identifying repair issues. We will re-commission the system to move it back into range, thereby reducing energy consumption and enhancing occupant comfort levels.

A Systematic Approach

  • Assess site needs and operations
  • Review building documentation and service contracts
  • Gather and analyze trend data – HVAC, ventilation, lighting
  • Inspect the building, its systems and equipment components
  • Identify repair, rebuild, and replacement items
  • Spot test equipment and controls, where appropriate
  • Develop a complete proposal for implementation

Benefits of System Retro-Commissioning

  • Reduce utility costs and improve energy efficiency, because systems are operating at their optimal levels.
  • Enhance property value by keeping operating costs lower which enhances occupancy rates and reduces tenant turnover.
  • Protect against future liability. Maintaining the building’s indoor environmental quality affects the health, comfort, and productivity of occupants which can help alleviate or avoid problems that might lead to future liability.
  • Reduce repair and replacement cost. Recommissioning improves system performance, increases equipment life, and reduces the need for repairs.
