7 Mechanical Hygiene Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) HVAC Systems
8 Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is one of the most important environmental issues facing us today!
9 The World Health Organization (WHO) has stated that 30% of all buildings can be categorized as having sick building syndrome (SBS) Ref: World Health Organization
10 Studies indicate that indoor air levels of pollutants may be 2-5 times, and occasionally 100 times, higher than outdoor levels. Ref: Environmental Protection Agency
11 Health care costs attributable to poor IAQ are in the neighborhood of $15 billion per year. Ref: American Medical Association
12 Productivity losses due to poor IAQ could reach 18% Ref: American Management Association
13 85% of Americans don t know the air in their homes may be hazardous to their health. The quality of indoor air is something all Americans should be concerned about. Ref: American Lung Association
14 NIOSH Study shows 53% of IAQ problems were caused by problems with or in the ventilation system. * Ventilation systems are prime suspects Ref: EPA

54 c. High, Medium & Low Pressure Systems: Pressure Velocity Classification The use of the term "low" and "high" as applied to velocity and/or pressure is arbitrary, and it has been discontinued. The designer must select a numerical static pressure class or classes which specify the requirements of the of the particular system. Pressure Class Operating Pressure.5 w.g. Up to.5 w.g. 1 w.g. Over.5 up to 1 w.g. 2 w.g. Over 1 up to 2 w.g. 3 w.g. Over 2 up to 3 w.g. 4 w.g. Over 3 up to 4 w.g. 6 w.g. Over 4 up to 6 w.g. 10 w.g. Over 6 up to 10 w.g.

127 The Challenge of Cleaning and Coating Fiberglass Insulation
128 The Challenge of Cleaning and Coating Fiberglass Insulation #1 Rule If you can t clean it, you can t coat it!
129 Cleaning Guidelines As you conduct your inspection, ask yourself the following four questions. If all of our answers are yes, then you can proceed with your cleaning. If any of your answers are no, you should remove or replace the fiber glass duct liner or fiber glass duct board. 1. Is the duct liner properly secured to the interior of the sheet metal duct or air handling unit? 2. Is the duct board properly installed? 3. Does the duct liner or duct board still have it s acoustical value? 4. Is the duct liner or duct board in a dry condition?
130 Coating Guidelines 1. Remove a sample section of fiber glass duct liner or fiber glass duct board. This section should be between 12 x 12 to 18 x Clean this section using your normal cleaning procedures. (You may want to clean the sample section in place first and then remove it, if that is easier). 3. Apply the coating to the air stream surface of the sample section using the same procedure you would normally use. We recommend using an airless sprayer capable of 2500 psi at.5 gpm or a robotics system. Tip size may vary based on the products used. 4. Let the sample dry, evaluate with your client, and make any necessary adjustments.
