HVAC Mechanical Hygiene Inspections Offer Many Benefits

Building owners and property managers depend on their HVAC system to work properly and efficiently during both cold and warm weather conditions. If something goes wrong with the HVAC system, it can immediately create major issues and even cause the temporary closure of a building.

Across New England, building owners and property managers have turned to Envirotech Clean Air for over a quarter of a century to perform their mechanical hygiene inspections. Envirotech utilizes state-of-the-art inspection technologies during their inspections, which often allows their technicians to identify and pinpoint both the source and severity of many air quality contaminations before any work even begins.

During the inspection process, a visual examination of the internal components of the facility’s HVAC system is performed by visually inspecting all of the key components of the system. These are photographed using digital photography, borescopes and video cable equipment where applicable. A photo report and presentation is then prepared for the client.

Each job is unique and is comprehensively reviewed by Envirotech’s team to evaluate any special needs that may be present and to map out the best approach for providing the highest level of service. The timeframe for the project, manpower needs and all resource materials are discussed and planned. Available schematic drawings are also reviewed and a final project plan is determined to satisfy the needs and requirements of the customer.

“Mechanical hygiene inspections are a critical component to ensuring a building’s HVAC system is operating properly and delivering clean air,” said Daniel Greenblatt, President of Envirotech Clean Air, Inc. “With over 25 years of experience and thousands of happy customers later, our experts have this process down to a science that benefits our clients on each project we undertake.”

New England Building Owners & Property Managers Turn to Envirotech for Clean Air Ducts

When people go to work, school or just visit a commercial building, they expect to have safe and healthy air to breathe. A key component to this is the building’s HVAC system and the ducts that distribute cold and warm air throughout a building.

A commercial building’s heating and cooling system works to take in and exhaust air out of a building. Through normal daily activities, people and their actions can generate a great deal of contaminants and air pollutants. In addition, outdoor pollutants can also enter a building and cause concern. These airborne pollutants may include dust, dander, pollen, mold, lead, asbestos and even a wide range of chemicals.

All of these contaminants can be pulled into the HVAC system and re-circulated many times each day. Over time, this re-circulation can cause a build-up of contaminants in the duct work. Aside from indoor air quality (IAQ) concerns, contaminants in a commercial building’s heating and cooling system may cause it to work inefficiently and even shorten the life of the system.

“When an HVAC system is clean, it works more efficiently, uses less energy and most importantly may pose less health concerns to building occupants,” said Daniel Greenblatt, President of Envirotech Clean Air, Inc. “The desired results are a clean air conveyance system, thermal comfort, happy and healthy people, improved cost-effectiveness and better indoor air quality.”

Since 1988, Envirotech has been providing comprehensive commercial duct cleaning services across New England.

AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL TOWER, NOT YOUR AVERAGE DUCT /MOLD JOB

Envirotech completed a rewarding and exciting three year multi phased project cleaning, restoring and sealing the HVAC system at the nation’s 25th busiest airport.  The Air Traffic Control Tower and Base Building cleaning’s most unique characteristic “was working with the integrated team of HVAC, Building Science, Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) and mold remediation consultants to formulate a restoration plan and solve problems as they arose in an operating FAA airport”, said Envirotech Vice President Ron Fallon.

The plan to clean the HVAC system with the cab of the tower without disturbing its occupants who operated on a 24/7 schedule involved rigorous safety, HVAC cleaning, detailed scheduling, precision coordination and efficiently trained teams.
