IAQ

shutterstock_79092358_350x233.jpgA building’s indoor air quality (IAQ) significantly impacts the productivity, health, and comfort of its occupants. Steps to improve IAQ are also typically good for the efficiency and longevity of critical assets like HVAC systems.

Our IAQ experts and professional technicians offer a full-suite of services aimed at improving the health and productivity of your facility, ranging from routine maintenance and duct cleaning to the latest in ultra-violet (UV-C) technology and patented ionization products.

For Healthier, More Productive, & More Efficient Buildings

Indoor air pollutants can negatively impact tenant satisfaction and cause serious health problems for employees who have respiratory conditions, autoimmune disorders, or environmental allergies. Airborne pathogens also build up in HVAC systems, leading to decreases in cooling capacity and reductions in efficiency.

Why Improve IAQ?

  • Provide a cleaner, healthier environment for occupants
  • Remove buildups of dust, dirt, mold, spores, microbes, viruses, and other particulates
  • Disinfect and clean system surfaces
  • Help HVAC systems work more efficiently
  • Lower energy costs
  • Reduce system maintenance requirements
  • Increase building ROI and life-span of critical assets
  • Eliminate airborne pathogens and odors
  • Keep cooling coils clean
  • Increase employee productivity and tenant satisfaction

Ongoing Maintenance

Regular HVAC maintenance, featuring filter replacements and upgrades, is one of the most fundamental ways to improve IAQ. We offer clients a full range of preventive and routine maintenance programs— including duct cleaning— all backed by 24/7 emergency dispatch and response.

UV-C Lamps to Kill Indoor Pathogens

We can provide and install advanced UV-C technology that offers continuous protection from airborne pathogens that accumulate on HVAC equipment. Typically, UV-C lamps only need to be replaced once a year, making them one of the most affordable ways to improve IAQ and HVAC function.

Purify Air with Ionization Technology

Utilizing needlepoint bi-polar ionization (NPBI) technology, we offer a cutting-edge IAQ solution that uses an electronic charge to create ions that can kill pathogens, breakdown harmful compounds, and accumulate microparticles into larger filterable particles.

HVAC Case Study

Problem
A current banking client for which EFS provides exterior services needed a single provider that could conduct full coverage, consistent HVAC preventive maintenance (PM) services, and capital repair and replacement services for 1,100 of their bank branch locations, since their equipment wasn’t being properly maintained by their current service providers.

Solution
Under EFS’ National Accounts model, a comprehensive PM program is being performed by EMCOR Mechanical Services companies across the client’s bank branch portfolio.

EFS also identifies equipment that is in critical need of repair and makes recommendations to replace it, which helps prevent system breakdowns and branch downtime. Portfolio-wide, the program has resulted in a 22% reduction in kWh consumption, and a 15% decrease in utility costs— totaling $1.75M in the first year of the contract.

In addition to providing significant savings, EFS has responded to all emergency service requests within a strict 2-hour timeframe, and has streamlined the customer’s communication and reporting through a single point of contact.

The customer has been exceedingly satisfied with the results, and the fact that there has been little or no disruption to the normal operation of their banking centers.
