4 Important HVAC Maintenance Steps

If you’ve been putting off building improvements, especially HVAC and those related to air quality, now may be the perfect time to start those projects, including:

The brief video below outlines the 4 HVAC maintenance steps that are critical to overall building air quality. Watch it now to learn:

  1. How to get rid of hot and cold spots in your buildings.
  2. The annual maintenance step that keeps everything cleaner and healthier.
  3. An often-overlooked way to lower energy costs and make systems more efficient.
  4. The one part of your system that must never, ever get rusty.


Duct Cleaning, Testing and Balancing

Most facility professionals understand the importance of testing and balancing your HVAC system, to ensure your system is operating at optimal capacity, without leaks or other mechanical issues. This ensures better air quality, a comfortably conditioned building that operates at optimum energy efficiency for lower costs.

But until recently, less focus was given to cleaning and sanitizing duct work. When was the last time your facility’s duct work was thoroughly cleaned? While your filters certainly help keep out major particles, smaller particles of dust and debris can build up in a system, causing not only poor efficiency, but compromised air quality as well.

Duct cleaning is important after any construction work has been completed at your facility, and now, even more critical to maintain safety and health by reducing dust, mold, allergens, and germs from COVID-19 and other illnesses.

Having your entire system cleaned and balanced regularly will not only ensure efficient operation, but will also contribute to healthier air quality, when coupled with an air purification system.
