UVC in your HVAC system

With the summer months upon us and the mercury rising, how is your building’s HVAC system performing? If it’s not up to scratch then there may be a very good reason.

Inefficient air-handling equipment may struggle to achieve the required indoor conditions, resulting in rising energy bills and increased maintenance requirement – not to mention an uncomfortable, unproductive and unhappy workforce.

Biofilm is a slimy substance caused by a build-up of contaminants such as mould, bacteria and viruses which thrives in the damp environment of an HVAC system’s air handling unit (AHU). If left untreated, biofilm can present a threat to the health and wellbeing of building occupants while reducing the HVAC system’s efficiency.

Applying ultraviolet-C (UVC) light to the cooling coil of an air handling unit destroys biofilm and returns performance to as-built at a fraction of the cost of a new HVAC system.

The installation of UVC technology from Gibbons Ultraviolet Solutions will significantly improve the overall efficiency of your building’s HVAC system, leading to:

  • Improved control and maintenance of building temperature
  • Reduced running costs
  • Lower CO2 emissions
  • Improved air system hygiene
  • Reduced corrosion leading to extended life of cooling coils
  • Decreased maintenance of the chilled water pumps and chillers
  • Running less chillers for the cooling load
  • Lower chilled water flow rates
  • Higher chilled water delta-T
  • Compliance with the WELL Building Standard
