IAQA Presentation: Evaluation of Steam Cleaning in AHU Coil Sanitization and Energy Efficiency
Presented by Frank Santini, IAQ Solutions Consultant at Pure Air Controls Services, Inc.
IAQA 2019 Annual Meeting
“Clearing the Air on Indoor Air Quality”
Tuesday, January 15, 2019
HVAC systems are one of the most important components of modern buildings. HVAC is not only important for indoor environments and human health but significant from an energy conservation point of view. Growing energy demands, cost, and associated environmental concerns directly impact the building HVAC system. Optimization of the system is important not only for environmental comfort but also in reducing energy consumption in buildings. Studies have been performed to analyze steam as a mechanism of cleaning HVAC coils to enhance performance by removing latent debris and microbial growth from on or within evaporator coils that restricts air flow and causes poor IAQ. The outcomes of various studies demonstrate both optimized IAQ and energy efficiency.
