TOPIC of the Seminar

How UV-C Can Reduce HVAC Energy, Maintenance Costs and Improve IAQ. This presentation briefly describes what UV-C energy is and how it’s produced. It touches on how UV-C has been used for nearly 100 years to destroy microorganisms in water on surfaces and in air. It will illustrate how UV-C is currently used to provide a “Green”, non-chemical method of stripping dirt and grime from coil and drain pan surfaces without residue. Case studies will be provided along with the simple methods used to validate their aging HVAC systems return to near new performance. Suggestions will be made on how to take advantage of this increased performance to save energy. We will also discuss current standards and guidelines within ASHRAE, UL and ISO.
