The Importance of Clean Coils for HVAC
Now more than ever, high-quality and breathable air is at the top of our minds. In the United States, the average person spends approximately 90 percent of their time indoors, putting individuals at even greater risk the more time they spend away from outdoor environments with fresh, naturally circulated air.
Indoors, pollutant concentrations can become up to five times higher than average outdoor levels, putting older adults and immunocompromised individuals at even greater risk for negative health effects caused by poor air quality.
In the past few decades, these levels have risen even more dramatically due to an evolving architectural industry, involving factors such as the implementation of energy-efficient building measures that lack adequate ventilation and an increase in synthetic building materials.
The national impact of indoor air on the lives of your employees and customers is important to you, and it’s crucial to maintain the healthy and safe working environment that your commercial business needs to thrive.
How Do Clean Coils Improve Indoor Air Quality?
Cleaner air begins with clean coils, every time.
The coils of your commercial HVAC system can quickly become a breeding ground for harmful pollutants to survive and thrive. If allowed to accumulate, these pathogens can infiltrate your building, spreading throughout your space via your HVAC system and affecting building occupants.
As the coils of your system attempt to draw in warm air to heat your space, they also attract dirt, dust, mold, and other bacteria and debris that cling to the metal. Overtime, such buildups can dramatically affect the efficiency and overall performance of your commercial HVAC system.
Clean Coils with Regular HVAC Maintenance
The inspection and cleaning of your heating coils is one of the most important elements of any commercial HVAC maintenance plan. When properly maintained, clean coils contribute to higher system efficiency and better indoor air quality.
To achieve clean coils, a commercial HVAC technician will carefully inspect these delicate parts for any wear or damage to determine whether a replacement or repair is necessary. Then, the coils are cleaned using an evaporator oil product that removes contaminants from the system.
