How To Prevent Mold In Your Commercial HVAC System
Your commercial HVAC system is designed to control the climate and moisture in your building. However, mold growth is a very common problem in older HVAC systems, including here in Delaware County.
When a commercial air conditioning system produces too much moisture, it affects every area of the building including inside the ductwork and all around the air handler. These dark, damp places are the perfect environment for mold to thrive.
Getting mold in your HVAC system is something you want to avoid at all costs because it can cause problems for your commercial building and your HVAC equipment as well as the people working in the building every day. Fortunately, there’s a lot you can do to prevent mold in your commercial HVAC system.
Get Commercial HVAC Maintenance
You may not realize how important the maintenance is for your commercial HVAC system. Not only will having your furnace and AC checked out regularly help the efficiency of the machine, it’ll also ensure your heating and cooling system is regularly inspected by a professional.
Hopefully, your HVAC contractor does a thorough job so they can warn you about any suspected moisture and mold problems. Our Delaware County commercial HVAC contractors do a thorough inspection during the heating & AC maintenance which includes inspecting for signs of too much moisture inside the system.
This includes checking the ducts, inside the air handler, and all around the unit.
Install A Dehumidifier
Your HVAC specialist can install a dehumidifier to control the humidity problem if it’s necessary. Every building is different so your solution may need to be different. Once the commercial dehumidifier is installed, you won’t have to worry about getting mold in your Commercial HVAC system and the building will feel more comfortable.
Replace Your Old Commercial HVAC System
If your commercial HVAC equipment is old, there may be nothing you can do about all the excessive moisture it’s producing except to go ahead and replace it.
