There is a reason why new a HVAC system or a newly coated HVAC system performs at an optimal level. With time the surfaces of AC coils become coated with contaminants like dust, dirt, pollen, moisture, mites etc. A build up of these contaminants decreases the available surface area for heat transfer, reducing the efficiency of this process, leading to excessive energy consumption and poor system performance.
HVAC typically accounts for 40-50 percent of the total energy bill for businesses and commercial buildings. Any inefficiency in your air conditioning system will be shown by higher than expected electricity bills and continuous breakdowns. More than the bills, it is the efficiency of the machinery that we are compromising on and as an environmental friendly company we need to arrest this issue. Hence, it is important that air conditioning coils are regularly inspected and maintained to ensure optimum performance.
Asbestos that was widely used in various buildings is today a banned material in many countries like the US, Europe and now in the Middle East as well. Studies have revealed that prolonged exposure to this material may cause asbestosis, lung cancer and mesothelioma (cancer of the chest and stomach cavities).Since it was praised as the Miracle Mineral due to its acoustical, insulating and fire resistant properties, it was widely used over the last century in commercial, industrial and residential buildings.

Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) can be defined as the nature or quality of air as it affects the health and well-being of building occupants. As per EPA & National Institute for Occupational Safety & Health (NIOSH), and others, show indoor pollutant level may be 10 to 100 higher than outdoors.
As per the World Health Organisation, up to one-third of buildings in industrialized countries are unhealthy and not good for inhalation on a daily basis. And the combined consequences of diminished productivity and staff absenteeism could amount to 1% of GNP in industrialised countries. And hence the IAQ is so important.
