You went into business to make money right? The buildup of dust and other allergens poses a potential danger to your employees’ health and the Environmental Prevention Agency states that a buildup of just 0.42” of dirt on a heating or cooling coil can result in a decrease of efficiency of 21%. It’s easy to neglect dirty air ducts and coils, but doing so can create costly issues for property managers, facility managers and the occupants in the building. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 25-40% of the energy use for heating and cooling is waste because air pollutants make an HVAC system work harder to heat and cool a facility. Having the air ducts cleaned will not only save you money but will have your HVAC system working more efficiently.
Is Commercial Air Duct Cleaning a Waste of Money?
Poor indoor air quality poses an invisible hazard and potentially higher costs in commercial buildings. To prevent these problems from being visible take a proactive step and have the air ducts cleaned in your commercial facility. The invisible problem is a dirty system and bad air buildup and the clear solution is regular inspection and cleaning of the air duct system. Benefits include improved air quality and a reduced potential for mold growth. It will make your HVAC system last longer, ensure a healthier work environment, eliminate unpleasant odors and save on energy costs. As time passes, airborne contaminants will create a breeding ground in your air ducts; a breeding ground for mold spores, mildew, bacteria, microbes and fungus. These contaminants are pulled into the HVAC system and re-circulated about 5 to 7 times a day. Over time, this re-circulation will lead to a buildup of contaminants in the ductwork and put the comfort of and the health of your employees in jeopardy. Commercial air duct cleaning is the solution- it really makes a difference and is worth the relatively small cost.
Commercial Air Duct Cleaning Process
The air duct system in a commercial property is different than that of a home and you will need to hire an air duct cleaning company that specializes in large facility commercial air duct cleaning. We have the experience needed to get the job done right. An inspection will be performed on your commercial HVAC and air duct system and appropriate cleaning needs will be discussed. Cleaning starts when a powerful vacuum system is connected near the furnace. Commercial grade equipment and products are then used to break up any contaminants and debris that has built up in the air ducts. These contaminants are then pulled out of the ducts and through the filtration system. Clean air is then put back into the facility. Once the cleaning is completed, all access holes are resealed and we essentially return the duct system to a like new state in a clean condition. This service should be done 3-5 times a year.
