HVAC energy costs normally constitute 50% or more of a commercial building’s energy consumption. By applying a highly engineered coating to both the heat exchanger coil and the exterior cabinets of HVAC systems, harmful corrosion and solar exposure are substantially reduced, lowering energy use by up to 30%.
Protecting the heat exchanger coils of your HVAC units prevents corrosion and may restore existing HVAC systems to within 95% of its original factory efficiency.
Prevents corrosion from eating into your equipment’s useful years of service. Coatings also reduce exterior temperatures of the metal HVAC cabinet, thus reducing unit run-time and increasing its lifespan.
Overheating is often listed as the most common cause of compressor failures in an HVAC system. By coating the unit’s exterior cabinets, internal temperatures can be reduced from upwards of 180°F to within 10°F of the ambient air temperature.
HVAC coatings block 95% of solar heat, reducing the exterior temperature of your unit to within 10°F of the ambient air temperature. This produces substantial reductions in unit run-time, especially during peak demand hours.
Coatings produce a glass-like layer that repels and rejects the growth of mold, mildew, and bacteria, as well as other environmental debris. These help sustain indoor air quality, protecting those inside the building.
College and university campuses usually include many large buildings that are difficult to air condition, and those in hot climates are tasked with maintaining comfortable temperatures when the rooftop units are over 180⁰F. Coating these systems can reduce the temperature within the units to a more manageable level and prevent overheating and unit failures.
On a 90°F day, the surface temperature of a rooftop HVAC unit can reach 150°F. Highly engineered coatings reduce the surface to just 10 to 15°F above outside air temperature. This measure dramatically reduces interior cabinet temperature, significantly increasing operating efficiencies and extending life by 25 to 50%.
The continuous salt spray intrusions in coastal areas often wreak havoc on the coils in HVAC units. Uncoated, these coils would barely survive a few years before giving out completely. Coating the coils in coastal zones provides superior protection against corrosion.
Keeping your customers comfortable while shopping will help you hit your sales goals, so be sure your HVAC units maintain optimal performance year-round. Coating these systems reduces the temperature within the units to a more manageable level and prevents overheating and unit failures.
