HVAC Hygiene Assessment
Our HVAC Hygiene Assessment precisely lets you know the impact your HVAC system has on your facilities Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) and bottom line. Over time your HVAC system can become dirty which in turn can decrease its performance and degrade your facility’s IAQ to the detriment of the occupants’ health.
Building Sciences’ HVAC Hygiene Assessment starts with a close visual inspection of the air handling unit for cleanliness. This includes but it not limited to the evaporator coils, drain pan, blower and the corresponding duct work. Samples are collected from within the AHU, and performance testing is done to determine if there is any impact to pressure or airflow across the evaporator coils.
These samples, along with other data logged from the inspection is sent to EDLab for further testing and analysis to determine if bacteria or fungi is present and in what quantity.
Finally, a detailed report, including a summary and helpful glossary is provided which includes performance data, microbiological results, photographs and recommendations for improvements.
The HVAC Hygiene Assessment Can Include
- Airflow & Energy Efficiency Testing
- Air Conveyance Hygiene & Prioritization
- Duct Leakage
- Building Pressure Analysis
- Air Filtration
- Post Construction Evaluations
- Building Air Tightness Testing
The HVAC system is an integral part of the IAQ in your buildings. Utilize this unique service to help schedule routine maintenance on the equipment to help keep it in optimal condition.
