HVAC Ventilation System Inspections - NADCA Certified

Commercial and industrial building built in the past few decades have been constructed with an air-tight design in order to improve energy efficiency.

The downside of this determined emphasis on improving energy efficiency is that ventilation has been significantly compromised. And with most Americans spending 90% of their time indoors, the air they are exposed to is that which circulates within the air-tight confines of these structures.

When air quality within the premises is compromised, it very well can have broad ranging implications for your business - most notably, an adverse affect on the health and productivity of your employees.

It is advisable for all commercial and industrial facilities to make a concerted effort to improving indoor air quality (IAQ) through proper ventilation and a properly optimized HVAC system. The reality faced by organizations that cast aside such prudent business measures is often harsh - as it's been proven time and time again that ineffective ventilation can result in:

  • Improper temperature control
  • Bad odor
  • Accumulation of smoke and dust
  • Growth of airborne bacteria, viruses and fungi

Proper ventilation in accordance with a well maintained HVAC unit can substantially help in:

  • Maintaining the comfort, health and efficiency of employees
  • Maintaining the quality of the indoor environment
  • Protecting the safety and efficiency of plant
An often overlooked connection...

Fresh air enters and impure air exits most buildings through the HVAC ventilation systems - thus, formidable problems can often arise with a ventilation system being used for a different purpose than what it was initially intended. CORE takes into consideration the following factors in order to properly identify the root of ventilation problems.

  • The purpose for which the building was originally intended
  • Whether the building is currently functioning according to the aim of its design
  • The changes in the building's blueprint that might have occurred since the initial design and construction process

As any owner or facilities manager can attest, complicated problems often arise in ventilation systems that are not readily apparent or identifiable... but their impact to business operations is almost always felt. In aggregate, these problems often contribute to the degradation of ventilation efficiency over time, which impacts the air people breath and an uptick in operating costs.

It's a basic fact - Ventilation problems are the biggest cause of poor indoor air quality - therefore they require the most stringent oversight.

An HVAC inspection enables owners or facility managers to identify whether the system has been compromised in any way. These inspections should always be performed by professionals certified by the Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA) and National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA).

Certified ventilation inspections like CORE are a must for all commercial and industrial complexes, given the large number of people using the premises as well as the broad range of pollutants that are likely to permeate your building environment.

Certified ventilation inspections are the only way to identify, in aggregate, the entire range of ventilation problems. A key player in the arena of certified ventilation inspections, CORE provides high-end solutions for ventilation systems and industrial and commercial facilities.

With it firmly established that a poorly designed, operated or maintained ventilation system contributes to indoor air problems, it is prudent to partner with an established player for your IAQ needs.

CORE's cutting-edge solutions and proactive indoor quality management programs have been carefully designed and implemented over the years to eliminate problems before they occur. Our experienced team of inspectors uses top of the line inspection equipment to not only diagnose, but address the widest array of ventilation issues in our marketplace.

Further, identifying and evaluating the ideal ventilation requirements of a large structure is a complex process. It involves immense planning and, therefore, requires a formally recognized level of industry expertise. CORE's Certified HVAC Ventilation Inspectors (CVI) undergo training based on the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) I-BEAM program, which provides a structured method of conducting inspections, in compliance with NADCA standards and guidelines.

Such training and certification examination covers applicable building and IAQ standards and codes, maintenance and housekeeping programs, diagnosing IAQ problems and reporting findings to building owners.

The Importance of Working With a State Licensed Air Conditioning Contractorstate-licensed-air-conditioning-contractor

To deal with the problems arising from slowly deteriorating IAQ, commercial and industrial facilities need to ensure that the AC ducts are cleaned and serviced regularly and that their equipment has been optimized in accordance with ASHRAE standards.

The reality is that with so much at stake, it does not pay to work with unlicensed contractors who often lack the education, hands-on training and cutting edge technologies granted by state licensing.

As a certified member in good standing of the Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA), Core is an industry leading HVAC service provider and offers varied services to improve ventilation and system optimization. In addition, Core offers repair, maintenance and often total system replacements to industrial and commercial facilities.
