News: Your HVAC-R System Could Be Spreading Toxic Pollutants

Has your heating, ventilation, air conditioning or refrigeration system (HVAC-R) been cleaned and sterilised within the last six (6) months?

If it hasn’t, you could potentially be breathing in toxic pollutants such as black mould, bacteria & airborne pathogens which can lead to a variety of illnesses.

Heating, ventilation, air-conditioning and refrigeration systems (HVAC-R) can rapidly spread air borne pathogens & bacteria by spreading contaminated air via an unhygienic and unclean filter.

Many commercial buildings don’t have adequate windows and rely wholly on heating, ventilation, air-conditioning & refrigeration systems (HVAC-R) to provide fresh air throughout the building.

Clean filters are a highly effective solution in removing majority of pollutants from the air however they need to be changed regularly to maintain efficiency and also to ensure that all the build-up of pollutants are removed from the HVAC-R system. Overtime, dust & mould build up will occur internally causing an insulating effect on your HVAC-R system, thus, consuming up to 60% more power than new or cleaned HVAC-R system.

To keep your workplace or building safe from such pollutants and to ensure energy efficiency, now is the time to get your HVAC-R systems cleaned, sanitised and serviced.

Running a dirty heating, ventilation, air-conditioning & refrigeration system (HVAC-R) can cause many health issues including: spread of air borne virus such as Influenza and potentially Covid-19*, asthma attacks, allergy flare up including hay fever, gastro symptoms, fatigue, sore throats, dry eyes, respiratory problems, headaches & colds or flu-like symptoms.

Take preventative action & book in a clean and sterilisation for your HVAC-R system.

*spread of ccovid-19 via HVAC-R systems has not yet been ‘officially’ confirmed, however scientific evidence has shown that the virus may travel in these HVAC-R systems as they push air through buildings that may become contaminated from a virus host.
