Preventing HVAC damage from cottonwood seeds

Post by Tova » Fri May 04, 2012 10:39 am

It's almost cottonwood season and soon seeds will be clogging rooftop units, restricting airflow to HVAC systems and lowering process equipment productivity. By covering the entire air intake perimeter with filters that keep the cottonwood out you can prevent seed buildup on fins and coils that blocks heat transfer, raises condensing temperatures and makes compressors work harder and less efficiently.

Avoid the messy job of cleaning impacted cottonwood off condenser coils. Long-lasting UV-protected filters, like Permatron’s PreVent filters, fit the air intake perimeter and can be mounted using custom attachments. Clean them off with a broom in a fraction of the time it takes to deep clean coils.
