Recently I was asked to write an article about HVAC System Hygiene for the March issue of Indoor Environment Connections. In this article I discussed four specific, and frustrating situations I have come across during my 25+ years in the industry. These include outsourcing by a major Southeast resort, coil cleaning at a hotel, inspecting an air handler serving a pediatric ward, and ignoring obvious problems at a separate major hospital. To read these field cases, please visit or download http://www.ieconnections.com/pdfs/newsletter/2012/IEC-03-2012.pdf and scroll to page 24.
As always, I welcome your comments below.
