Indoor air quality is a concern that building managers and building inhabitants have when they decide to investigate HVAC systems.
Having your HVAC system cleaned is necessary for its overall lifespan. They get dirty over time and have the potential to contain large amounts of dust and particles.
In a regular building environment, a great deal of contaminants and air pollutants is generated, including dander, dust, and chemicals. These contaminants are pulled into the HVAC system and recirculated up to 7 times per day, on average. Over time, the re-circulation will cause a build up of contaminants in the ductwork.
A contaminated HVAC system doesn’t necessarily mean the air is unhealthy, the situation could be contributing to larger health issues or harbouring contaminants that, in the future, could cause serious problems for people with respiratory health conditions.
Benefits of HVAC Inspection
Having a professional inspect your HVAC system and 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 the inspector is to assess the cleanliness and structural integrity of an HVAC system. They will search for obstructions, microbial contamination and any excess moisture.
