A building’s indoor air quality (IAQ) significantly impacts the productivity, health, and comfort of its occupants. Steps to improve IAQ are also typically good for the efficiency and longevity of critical assets like HVAC systems.
Our IAQ experts and professional technicians offer a full-suite of services aimed at improving the health and productivity of your facility, ranging from routine maintenance and duct cleaning to the latest in ultra-violet (UV-C) technology and patented ionization products.
Indoor air pollutants can negatively impact tenant satisfaction and cause serious health problems for employees who have respiratory conditions, autoimmune disorders, or environmental allergies. Airborne pathogens also build up in HVAC systems, leading to decreases in cooling capacity and reductions in efficiency.
Regular HVAC maintenance, featuring filter replacements and upgrades, is one of the most fundamental ways to improve IAQ. We offer clients a full range of preventive and routine maintenance programs— including duct cleaning— all backed by 24/7 emergency dispatch and response.
We can provide and install advanced UV-C technology that offers continuous protection from airborne pathogens that accumulate on HVAC equipment. Typically, UV-C lamps only need to be replaced once a year, making them one of the most affordable ways to improve IAQ and HVAC function.
Utilizing needlepoint bi-polar ionization (NPBI) technology, we offer a cutting-edge IAQ solution that uses an electronic charge to create ions that can kill pathogens, breakdown harmful compounds, and accumulate microparticles into larger filterable particles.
A current banking client for which EFS provides exterior services needed a single provider that could conduct full coverage, consistent HVAC preventive maintenance (PM) services, and capital repair and replacement services for 1,100 of their bank branch locations, since their equipment wasn’t being properly maintained by their current service providers.
Under EFS’ National Accounts model, a comprehensive PM program is being performed by EMCOR Mechanical Services companies across the client’s bank branch portfolio.
EFS also identifies equipment that is in critical need of repair and makes recommendations to replace it, which helps prevent system breakdowns and branch downtime. Portfolio-wide, the program has resulted in a 22% reduction in kWh consumption, and a 15% decrease in utility costs— totaling $1.75M in the first year of the contract.
In addition to providing significant savings, EFS has responded to all emergency service requests within a strict 2-hour timeframe, and has streamlined the customer’s communication and reporting through a single point of contact.
The customer has been exceedingly satisfied with the results, and the fact that there has been little or no disruption to the normal operation of their banking centers.
