According to the National Air Duct Cleaners Association. “Through normal occupation in a building, ducts can generate a great deal of contaminants and air pollutants.Dander, dust, and chemicals are the most commonly found. These contaminants are pulled into the HVAC system and re-circulated 5 to 7 times per day, on average. Over time, this re-circulation causes a build-up of contaminants in the ductwork.”
Additionally, a dirty HVAC system corrodes mechanical components and causes costly repairs and replacement, not to mention decreased energy efficiency. This is caused by a build-up of dirt, dust and linen fibers that literally chokes a hospital’s HVAC system. If not thoroughly cleaned, the corrosion will eventually lead to heating and cooling equipment failure. In the meantime, however, the system has to work harder and harder, greatly driving up energy costs through inefficiency.
