One thing that we at Alan Manufacturing have begun to notice is that there has been a recent uptick in requests about our retrofitting products. While we were attending the AHR show in New York and the ACCA show in Nashville, multiple contractors approached us to ask how to install our retro fit products in older homes that are being remodeled and updated.
The first thing that we do when meeting with a client or potential client that is interested in retrofitting, is to determine whether or not their existing manual dampers are visible. We also ask the following questions before we begin:
- Is there a power source close to the area where they want to place the damper?
- If so, what is the voltage of said power?
- Do they want the controls for the dampers to be wireless?
- How many zones/rooms do they want to control?
Upon making these determinations, we can begin to work with our clients on updating their out of date system, modifying any of our products that may not fit the existing duct work and ensuring that they will be as comfortable as possible with their new product.
To see us in action, take a look at this retrofit damper installation instruction video.
