Things to Consider for Chilled Water System

For any commercial company, regardless of size, overhead costs and safety are of the highest concern to be handled efficiently.  Chilled water systems come to mind here because your ac system is a must for comfort, productivity, and safety.  The pros and cons for a chilled water system will be discussed below, but what’s to be remembered is that overall, chilled water systems are cost effective avenues for cool temperatures that are also safe. Safe because having refrigerant piped all over your commercial building, has inherit hazards, and chilled water systems take that hazard out.

 

Advantages

·         Energy Reduction and Lower Utility Bills – Compared to standard air cooled chiller/HVAC system

·         Noise Reduction – Extremely quiet choice, excellent in certain environments.  Water is not as susceptible to duct and vent expansion and contraction.

·         Healthier Option – water is non toxic and non corrosive, unlike your standard cooling systems that use refrigerant and other chemicals for operation

·         Safer Solution – again, no refrigerant piped hazard to be worried about

·         Longevity – Lasts longer than standard air cooled chiller alternative because water chilled is installed indoors and the alternative is outdoors, impacted by the elements.  Also alternative uses chemicals that the water chilled system doesn’t require

 

Disadvantages

·         Higher Upfront Costs – All technology advanced equipment costs more upfront than the standard option. Also, more complex units tend to have higher labor costs due to specialized training.  It can pay for itself over time in a multitude of ways (think advantages)

·         Standard Maintenance Increase – More working parts means more chance of increased inspection, repair, and/or replacement of faulty parts. Water treatments will also be required.

·         Not as Effective in Humid Environments - Higher levels of humidity raise the wet-bulb temperature, which is an indicator of how efficiently water absorbs heat. This equates to higher operating costs.

Clean the Air in Your Home with UV Germicidal Lights

Indoor air quality is vital to proper health standards and overall quality of life.  Your comfort at home goes beyond the temperature setting of your a/c or heater unit.  You may not even think about the air you are breathing because after all you don’t really see the air.  Now you may see dust particles but there is so much more than that floating around us at all times.  The list of obvious potentials that impact indoor air quality are more than a few but mostly, pollen, dust, pet dander, people dander, dirt, debris, etc.  Now let’s discuss how the plethora of germs surrounding us highly influences our indoor air quality.

 

Germs spread bacteria and viruses, so we know to wash our hands before we eat, before we touch our face, etc., but what about all the germs on all the surfaces of every item inside your home or office? You can’t possibly constantly keep that clean, or can you? UV (Ultraviolet) Germicidal Lights can do a better clean for your indoor air quality than any effort you may attempt on your own.

 

UV Germicidal Lights emit UV rays that have no negative effect or byproduct.  They are safe for humans and animals alike, and they are installed inside your HVAC system. The main beneficial difference between your standing air filters and electronic systems and UV germicidal lights is that the latter is about destroying living biological pollutants that simply cannot be filtered out.  All the common pollutants you likely thought of initially, those can all be filtered out with standard methods. Clean air and proper indoor quality is two-fold for it is about air filtration and biological pollutant sanitation.

 

The beauty and key to UV lighting is that it kills pollutants on a biological level, down to the core.  The pollutant will no longer be able to reproduce, thus stopping the spread.  With your standard air filtration methods, the pollutants are trapped but not dead. 

 

If you are ready to make your indoor air quality the best, contact Expert Air today to discuss the most beneficially fitting UV lighting options for your home or office.
