Please read this article about UV-C’s application for solving commercial IAQ problems stemming from poorly maintained HVAC systems:
“There’s No Excuse for Poor IAQ: Regular maintenance, fresh-air ventilation key to improving building health”
by Joanna R. Turpin on the NEWS website.
“Commercial IAQ problems often stem from poorly maintained HVAC systems, which can be ideal breeding grounds for microbial buildup in cooling coils, drain pans, and duct surfaces, said Dan Jones, president of UV Resources. “For this reason, when contractors are trying to isolate an IAQ problem, they should always check a building’s central air conditioning system first — particularly in hospitals, which are seeing a rise in antibiotic-resistant superbugs. Preventing these hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) from taking root is a priority.”
One way to prevent these problems from arising is to install ultraviolet-C (UV-C) systems that use UV-C’s germicidal energy to inactivate virtually any airborne pathogen, said Jones. “For example, our RLM Xtreme UV-C lamp system can be applied to new equipment to maintain specified coil efficiency and performance as well as be retrofitted into existing HVAC systems to address degraded heat transfer and pressure drop due to fouled coils. By keeping coils clean year-round, the HVAC system remains energy efficient and can deliver clean air at the desired set point temperature.””
