Enhancing HVAC Efficiency and Indoor Air Quality with CoilSafe Plus

HVAC systems play a crucial role in maintaining indoor comfort, but they can also be breeding grounds for microbiological growth, including fungi, bacteria, mold, and viruses. The areas around the evaporator coils, drain pans, and blower fan assemblies are particularly vulnerable due to their cold, dark, and wet conditions. In this blog, we'll explore the challenges posed by microbial growth in HVAC systems and introduce a proven solution – CoilSafe Plus.

The Challenge of Microbial Growth:

Microbial growth within HVAC systems can lead to indoor air quality issues, health concerns, and reduced system efficiency. Many solutions are available to combat this problem, but they often come with challenges.

Bolt-On Devices:

Some mechanical and electrical devices can be added to HVAC units to mitigate microbial growth. While they may be effective for a time, they require additional maintenance, repairs, and increased energy consumption. Moreover, these devices lack alert systems, leaving you unaware of maintenance needs or failures, potentially providing a false sense of security.

Anti-Microbial Coatings:

Anti-microbial coatings have gained popularity as an alternative solution. However, not all coatings are created equal. Mere qualification as anti-microbial through an ASTM G21 test for fungal growth is insufficient. To protect against microbiological threats, coatings should undergo ISO bacterial and viral testing, which many coatings lack. Additionally, most anti-microbial coatings are organic, potentially serving as a food source for microbial growth.

Introducing CoilSafe Plus:

CoilSafe Plus stands out as an innovative and effective solution to address the challenges of microbial growth in HVAC systems. Here's why it's a superior choice:

  1. Inorganic Composition: CoilSafe Plus is an inorganic coating, eliminating the risk of serving as a food source for microbial growth.

  2. Rigorous Testing: CoilSafe Plus has undergone extensive testing, including ISO 22196 bacterial testing, demonstrating a remarkable 99.5% kill rate. It has also been ISO 21702:2019 viral tested against live COVID-19 SARS 2, achieving an impressive 99.8% kill rate. Furthermore, it has been UL tested for flame/smoke spread with a rating of 0/0, ensuring compliance with national fire codes for indoor air surfaces.

  3. Proven Longevity: Unlike many products, CoilSafe Plus has been thoroughly tested by third parties to guarantee long-lasting effectiveness in providing healthier and cleaner HVAC surfaces.

When it comes to managing or owning facilities such as medical facilities, schools, office buildings, or retail spaces, ensuring the health and cleanliness of HVAC systems is paramount. CoilSafe Plus emerges as the clear choice for corrosion protection and microbial control. Its inorganic composition and comprehensive third-party testing provide a level of performance and peace of mind that other products simply can't match. Elevate your HVAC system's performance and indoor air quality with CoilSafe Plus today.
