The HVAC or air conditioning system carries the air that we breathe from its central unit throughout duct work into our work spaces. This air is saturated with contaminants that build up in our buildings over time. Hair, skin cells, ink, paper, dirt, bugs, bacteria, and mold are commonly found inside even relatively clean duct work. However, as the filters in the system get loaded, many particles start bypassing the filtration, and over time can accumulate on surfaces of the air handling units themselves, as well as the duct work throughout the building. This can pose several potential problems:
1. EPA studies show that a buildup of just .42″ on the coil surface can reduce the efficiency of that system by at least 21%. That means that over time, you are increasing heating and cooling costs, while reducing the amount of heating and cooling you are actually creating.
2. Increased particulates inside the duct work increase the amount of vacuuming and dusting that are needed in your facility. Have you ever come in after your area was dusted and still see a fine layer of dust? That happens when the duct work acts as a “dust distribution device.”
3. Increased particulates inside the duct work also mean increased allergens. Have you heard of “Building Related Illness”, and “Sick Building Syndrome”? These medical conditions are greatly contributed to by having duct work that has not been cleaned in years, sometimes
never cleaned. Cleaning the duct work in your facility is just plain good sense! It saves time and money in the long run by increasing system efficiency and reducing the amount of custodial work that must be done. It also increases the quality of air, contributing to a healthier working environment.
At Lamunyon, we look forward to assisting you in improving your indoor air quality, increasing your efficiency, and ultimately helping the “lungs” of your building last a lot longer!
