Sagging roof tiles, water spots and puddles are just a few of the cosmetic concerns caused by HVAC leaks, clogs and overflows. The more serious water damages that result include flooding, destruction of equipment, and mold growth inside of walls. However, all are maintenance problems that not only damage equipment and property, but are safety hazards and aesthetic concerns.
Air handler units, by design, accumulate water and particles found in the air, which then build up in condensate pans and basins. Therefore, water damage from an HVAC system can go unnoticed until it is too late, requiring vast repairs and even the need for a remediation mold specialist. Constant cleaning of these areas by personnel is neither feasible nor practical, but can be accomplished by using the right products.
At CRT, we have developed the following HVAC products to reduce leaks, clogs and overflows. By using our Timed Release Product Line, condensate pans, cooler pads and basins remain clean and deposit free, protecting buildings from costly water damages and maintenance expenditures.
PanGuard, an independently certified Green Product, is the original, timed-release polymer strip. PanGuard eliminates clogs and overflows due to deposit accumulation in HVAC condensate pans, and is engineered to meet the needs of individually sized units. Once a condensate drip pan has been cleaned, it remains clean for three to six months.
Algae Guard is an EPA registered, timed-release polymer strip. Algae Guard eliminates clogs and overflows due to mold and fungus accumulation in HVAC condensate pans, and is engineered to meet the needs of individually sized units. Once a condensate drip pan has been cleaned, it remains clean for three to six months.
Cooler Guard is a timed-release polymer block that contains de-scalers. Cooler Guard protects against scaling damages and accumulation on evaporative cooler pads and basins, allowing users to save on water and avoid pad replacement. Once installed, an evaporative cooler remains clean 30 to 45 days, depending on the hardness of the water.
