Commercial heating and cooling can affect a building’s health
It is entirely possible to make an HVAC system more energy-efficient while still maintaining acceptable IAQ standards. Old or clogged filters can become a breeding ground for bacteria and fungi, as well as slow-moving air which wastes energy. Periodically replacing them will ensure abundant and contaminant-free air flow. Have Indianapolis heating and cooling experts like Bri-TecHVAC conduct a routine inspection and cleaning of dehumidifying coils and drain pans. This ensures these parts don’t become sources of airborne contaminants, such as mold and bacteria spores. Replace old and worn parts if needed. The use of ultraviolet lamps can also lessen potential growth of mold and bacteria.
