Florida HVAC Coil Cleaning Business Draws Attention of U.S. Department of Energy
A Tallahassee, Florida businessman who owns an HVAC coil cleaning service has convinced the U.S. Department of Energy to dispatch a researcher to observe the process and benefits of coil cleaning.
In “Local firm sees green jobs in HVAC system cleaning” (Dec. 13), the Democrat profiles Richard Namovich, founder of Rejuvenair, a 12-year-old company whose original purpose (which has expanded over time) was to clean motel and nursing home air conditioners. It says Namovich has been spreading the word about the energy-saving benefits of HVAC system cleaning, and after nine months of lobbying the government he convinced the DOE to dispatch “researcher Subrato Chandra of the Florida Solar Energy Center to Florida State University on Sept. 21 to observe the cleaning of coils at a biology building.”
The paper says Namovich is keen on the idea that hundreds of thousands of jobs could be created and huge amounts of energy could be saved by putting people to work cleaning AC coils.
The story quotes the general manager of a 150-room hotel that uses Rejuvenair’s services. The man says the coil cleaning saves significant amounts of energy and translates annually to $10,000 in utility savings and nearly $25,000 in savings on maintenance staff time.
Florida State University says it has seen similar results from having the coils cleaned at its campus buildings.
