For starters, the PURE-Steam Coil Cleaning is one of the few certified by the Green Clean Institute
The Green Clean Institute has become one of the standards for Green products and services in the United States. The goal has been to follow the Green Guide expectations of the Federal Trade Commission which require a higher standard for Green claims and endeavor to stop unsupported Green claims.
Green Clean Institute verification is a process of verifying the Green and sustainable claims by a product or service from a customer perspective. As an independent third party, the Green Clean Institute is a neutral organization that reviews the claims made for the service. If these claims are well supported and uncontradicted by known environmental concerns, a company can earn the verification of the Green Clean Institute.
Pure Air Control Services has earned the Green Clean Institute verification on May 05, 2012 after a professional review by the review committee of the Green Clean Institute. To pass this review, the company must supply advertised claims and credible support to validate the factual basis for these claims. Support can be lab test, actual field reports, and historic data.
The value of the GCI Verification is that the consumer has the assurance that the service or product has been faithfully reviewed by a program designed to prove up the integrity of the service offered. Consumers may have confidence that the claims are more than cosmetic and the services are as represented.
In a day to heavy marketing, Green washing is the over-hype of a product or service that exceeds the actual facts. Consumers are becoming more aware of the need for healthy and sustainable services, but lack the time and talent to discern the best choices. This is the purpose of a third-party review system. Consumers may have greater reliance on the claims because they know that an independent firm has reviewed the facts of the service.
Why the PURE-Steam Coil Cleaning Process is so Effective: The PURE-Steam Coil Cleaning process utilizes a blistering hot 300 degree Fahrenheit steam melting away coil-clogging debris, boosting air flow & cooling capacity, sterilizing the coil while saving energy and money.
There's an old adage about water, shared among health-conscious people: “If you are not drinking filtered water, then you are the filter”. The same is true for the HVAC system: “If you are not filtering/cleaning the HVAC systems air, then your lungs are the filter.” The interior of air handling units (AHU’s) are dark, damp, oftentimes wet conditions that can harbor formations of endotoxins, mycotoxins, bacteria, fungus, pollen, particulate and other bio pollutants.
These bio pollutants cover metal surfaces with a thin, almost invisible layer and permeable materials e.g fiberglass liner which can be impregnated with millions and millions of tiny microscopic spores. Oftentimes, this bio-mass leads to a musty earth-like smell sometimes known as “Dirty Sock Syndrome” a primary cause of offensive odors. This microbial growth on fin surfaces acts an insulation on the evaporator coils, which decreases system efficiency. These pollutants are known to produce allergy-like symptoms, coughing, wheezing, watery eyes, asthma type conditions and other symptoms in building occupants. Fouled coils lead to increased pressure drop across them. Increased pressure drop increases fan horsepower requirements, which, in turn, draw more power, increasing current consumption.
A large Florida university stated that the PURE-Steam Coil Cleaning Process is “saving 7-10% on the chilled water equipment. Some of this is from reduced fan energy and the rest is from an increased delta T across the coil which reduces pumping energy and increases chiller efficiency. As an estimate 35-40% of our utility bills are for HVAC so just keeping our coils clean should shave between $600K to $800K off our utility bills annually, at the low end”. “as for ROI (return on investment) if you use the most conservative numbers we have paid approximately $0.14 per square foot for coil cleaning to date. We have saved about $0.22 per square foot annually. So the payback is less than 8 months and the ROI 157% annually.”
Green services represent a value that can be seen in the health of those who use the building facilities. Other advantages of energy savings, reduced waste, and more efficient operations. The cumulative impact of using Green services have important paybacks.
Green Clean Institute is pleased to verify the PURE-Steam Coil Cleaning process and provide the certification seal as a symbol of the Green attributes of this service.
