Benefits of HVAC System Cleaning for Commercial Properties

air ducts 1

Why should you have your HVAC system cleaned? The short answer is simple: because they get dirty over time and they have the potential to contain large amounts of dust and particulates.

Energy Savings

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 25 to 40 percent of the energy used for heating or cooling is wasted. Contaminants in the heating and cooling system cause it to work harder and shorten the life of your system. Although filters are used, the heating and cooling system still gets dirty through normal use. When an HVAC system is clean, it doesn’t have to work as hard to maintain the temperature you desire. As a result, less energy is used, leading to improved cost-effectiveness. 

Indoor Air Quality

Indoor air quality is one concern that building managers and building inhabitants have when they decide to investigate HVAC system. Through normal occupation in a building, we generate a great deal of contaminants and air pollutants, such as dander, dust, and chemicals. These contaminants are pulled into the HVAC system and re-circulated 5 to 7 times per day, on average. Over time, this re-circulation causes a build-up of contaminants in the ductwork.

While a contaminated HVAC system doesn’t necessarily mean unhealthy air, the situation may be contributing to larger health issues or harboring contaminants that could cause serious problems for people with respiratory health conditions, autoimmune disorders or some environmental allergies.

Benefits of HVAC Inspection

HVAC inspectors conduct comprehensive examinations of components and systems to determine whether they are contaminated with a significant accumulation of particulate or microbial growth, or if HVAC performance is compromised due to contamination build-up.

The role of an HVAC inspector is to assess the cleanliness and structural integrity of an HVAC system. Inspectors search for obstructions, excess moisture and microbial contamination in the HVAC system.

NADCA offers a certification geared toward HVAC inspectors, called the Certified Ventilation Inspector (CVI) program. CVI-certified personnel have received training based on the EPA’s structured method of performing inspections, which is also in compliance with NADCA’s standard. The training covers applicable building and IAQ standards and codes, maintenance and housekeeping programs, diagnosing IAQ problems and reporting findings to building owners.

Benefits of HVAC Restoration

Restoration of HVAC system components is the process of preparation, refurbishment, resurfacing, repair, or replacement of any surface common to the air stream. Restoration procedures must only be performed after mechanical cleaning.

Air side surfaces of HVAC systems found to be compromised during the HVAC cleanliness evaluation or during cleaning must be documented for restoration or replacement to industry standards, as required.

HVAC system components subjected to catastrophic events such as fire, smoke, flood, or water-damage must be subject to restoration procedures. Component degradation that results in compromised system performance must be corrected through restoration procedures if possible.

HVAC component replacement must take place if acceptable cleanliness levels cannot be achieved through mechanical cleaning and restoration methods.

Fall Is the Perfect Time to Clean Your Air Ducts

aeroseal_logo_500

Why is Fall the perfect time to clean your air ducts? Well, there are a couple of good reasons. The first is you want your ducts to be working at high efficiency in the winter while you’re stuck inside your home or office. Indoor air quality is more important than ever at this time of year to avoid a buildup of dust, dander, debris, and contaminants like mold, fungi, and bacteria-  that you could be breathing in. Clean air ducts mean fresh, clean air!

The second reason to clean your air ducts in the Fall is energy savings. As were just about to enter the Winter season with high-energy costs to heat our homes and offices, why pay more than we have to? Dirty air ducts have to work harder to maintain your temperature settings. That translates to you spending more money on your heat bill. Clean air ducts use less energy and therefore save you money!

Aspen Air Duct Cleaning Services are experts at diagnosing and eliminating indoor air quality problems for both commercial and residential properties. We provide HVAC Duct Cleaning, HVAC Anti-microbial Applications, Mold Remediation, and Aeroseal Duct Sealing.

On the commercial side, we work in churches, retail and commercial buildings, and expansive HVAC systems of high-rise office buildings and industrial complexes. On the residential side, we diagnose and eliminate indoor air quality problems in private homes, high-rise apartment complexes, and condo associations. We also clean out clothes dryer vents to eliminate a commonly overlooked fire hazard.

Aeroseal – the Latest in Duct Cleaning Technology

Aspen Air Duct Cleaning is an approved Aeroseal Dealer, offering Aeroseal Duct Sealing, a patented breakthrough technology that tackles leaks from the inside out. Aeroseal software allows our technicians to accurately measure the duct leakage in residential homes and commercial buildings. The Aeroseal process puts escaping air under pressure and causes polymer particles to stick first to the edges of a leak, then to each other until the leak is closed.

The Aeroseal process:

  • Reduces up to 90% leakage
  • Fixes pressurization issues
  • Decreases fan horsepower
  • Extends equipment life

The typical commercial building in America loses 25% to 40% of its heating and cooling energy through the ductwork. Aeroseal reduces up to 90% of that duct leakage. And, our commercial duct sealing system will reduce heating and cooling costs by up to 20%.

Ensure the maximum health and efficiency of your HVAC system with professional air duct cleaning!
