Indoor Air Quality

The air your employees, customers, and occupants breathe has a great impact on their health and safety. You need to ensure the air you are providing is clean. Circulating air with harmful particles such as mold, dust, bacteria, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and other contaminants is preventable with the right indoor air quality accessories.

At Amber, our air quality specialists recommend:

  • Bipolar ionization—This emerging technology has been shown to neutralize viruses, making them inactive and unable to spread. The resulting purified air helps keep Chicago area building occupants healthier and able to go about their daily activities with peace of mind. This technology has been used across many industries, including hospitals, government buildings, airports, and schools, to name a few.
  • Ultraviolet disinfection—Ultraviolet (UV) light has been well established in the industry as a powerful way to keep HVAC coils, drain pans, and other surfaces clean, and may help prevent and reduce the spread of viruses and other airborne pollutants.

UV light is germicidal, meaning it breaks down the DNA of harmful contaminants and keeps them from growing—just like UV rays from the sun.

  • MERV 13+ filtration—High-efficiency filtration is necessary in today’s public buildings to help prevent the spread of infection, and our experts recommend installing the highest MERV rating your building can handle.

The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) currently recommends filters with a MERV 13 rating or above for commercial HVAC systems. They become at least 85 percent efficient at filtering harmful contaminants like viruses, dust mites, mold, pollen, pet dander, and more.

  • Ultraviolet C—An ultraviolet C (UVC) wavelength is effective in air quality solutions. It is safe and effective, ideal for facilities and businesses with a higher number of employees, customers, and occupants where odors, microbials, and VOCs are of concern. This system uses germicidal UVC light in combination with four reactive catalytic processes to kill, control, and oxidize airborne contaminants.

This means airborne microorganisms, pathogens, odors, and gases are not able to escape the oxidative cleansing action of the OXY 4 air purifier. It is particularly effective in high-humidity environments where molds, mildew, and microorganisms thrive.

Our Amber team can install, replace, repair, and maintain any of these HVAC accessories, as well as many others. Contact us to discuss what would work best for your Illinois building’s unique needs.

Coil Cleaning

Cleaning your commercial HVAC evaporator and condenser coils is an important part of your preventative maintenance.  Over time, your coils collect various types of dirt and debris, which can negatively affect your system and its operation, costing you money on several levels.

Having our commercial HVAC professionals clean your coils regularly offers advantages to your Chicago ara business:

  • Lowered energy costs. When your commercial coils are dirty, they can’t run at peak efficiency. This ends up increasing the energy needed to run, thus costing you more in energy and money.
  • Decreased chance of a system breakdown. Having a clean coil helps your HVAC system run better, reducing the probability of a needed repair. When your system breaks down, it costs you money, both in repair costs and lost productivity.
  • Extended equipment life expectancy. The accumulation of dirt impedes airflow and makes your system work harder. When it works harder, it can overheat, increasing the chance of a breakdown. More repairs and breakdowns can lead to a shorter system life span.
