Warmer weather is right around the corner and soon your HVAC system will be working harder to keep your building cool and occupants comfortable. In order for these systems to run efficiently and effectively, it’s important that they are cleaned on a regular basis. Spring is the perfect time to get these systems back in proper working condition.
Spring is the Perfect Time to Clean Your Air Ducts
With weather still at cooler temperatures, shutting off your HVAC system for cleaning will have less of an effect on the comfort of your building occupants. It will also get your system in prime working condition for summer months and hot weather, when you really need it the most. Proper maintenance and cleaning of your HVAC system not only helps to prolong the life of your system, but saves energy. It is much easier to cool the building when the system is cleaned as it does not have to work as hard to force air through dirty, clogged ducts.
When is the Last Time You Cleaned Your HVAC System?
If you are like most, it’s probably been a while. NADCA suggests that air handling units be inspected annually, while the supply and return ductwork be inspected every 2 years at minimum to check for cleanliness. In many facilities, this doesn’t happen very often as air ducts are out of sight, out of mind, especially for facilities on a tight budget.
Cleaning the HVAC system can also improve the indoor air quality in your facility. Air ducts are home to millions of dust particles, mold, and fungal spores that travel through the air. This can cause problems for individuals with allergies, asthma, or immune system problems. Cleaning the air ducts properly can also prevent any problems for these building occupants, especially during the allergy seasons.
