Sometimes insulation is NOT a good thing.
If your air conditioning/refrigeration system coils are covered by a nice toasty blanket of dirt, cottonwood fluff, pollen and other debris, they’re costing you more money than you might think.
Check out these statistics:
- Dirty coils use 37 percent more energy. A 10-Ton Air Conditioning system can provide as little as 7 Tons of Cooling. (“Air Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration News”)
- Just 0.042 inches of dirt on an air conditioning coil can reduce its efficiency by 21 percent. (U.S. Environmental Protection Agency).
- The annual operating cost of a 100-ton chiller can go from $16,300 to $48,300 as performance deteriorates. (U.S. Department of Energy).
PreVent Air Intake filters, with their inherent electrostatic charge, protect your HVAC system from the outside, trapping particles before they can reach your coils.
Our clients report PreVent filters allow their equipment to function better, require less maintenance and use less energy.
“By using the PreVent filters, we’ve reduced our seasonal filtration costs by almost 70 percent and our maintenance and cleaning man-hours are about a third of what they were with the old filtration equipment,” says Angelo Carreiri, Maintenance Superintendent, Water and Sanitation District, Parker Colorado.
