The Use of Chemicals in HVAC systems – Part 3

In the past two blog posts we’ve discussed the use of Antimicrobial products which are generally applied through spraying, wiping or fogging. However, the application method chosen must be one that is in the label directions. Antimicrobials should only be applied after the surfaces have been cleaned. Surface soil or contamination can interfere with the effectiveness of a product. When our technicians us antimicrobial products, they are required to follow the directions carefully and use their personal protective equipment as directed by the label.

Best Practices

  • Follow instructions and safety precautions as per the EPA-accepted label.
  • Use in a well-ventilated area.
  • Keep in original or properly marked container.
  • Label all containers. Where concentrated products are used, label containers holding diluted (ready to use) products.

Summary

In addition to exploring antimicrobial products, the white paper also includes sections dealing with the following topics that are not covered in this article:

  • Sealants
  • Resurfacing Materials (repair coatings)
  • Coil Cleaning Compounds
  • Soap & Detergents
  • Degreasers

Using chemicals in addition to source removal is certainly not needed on every air duct cleaning project. But some projects do need the use of chemicals to satisfy project/customer requirements.  Be sure you understand what types of chemicals can be used and what components they can be used on.
