Cooling towers serving AC units are normally only cleaned bi-annually. However, other towers need more cleaning. Routine operation of a tower is vital because of concentrates of dirt, dust and other pollutants in the air. These contaminates contribute to microbiological growth, corrosion and inefficient running of the tower. Not cleaning your tower also encourages the growth of bacteria.
Routine tower cleaning reduces negative impacts and is an essential part of the preventative maintenance program for cooling tower systems. Talk to your water treatment specialist about a chemical-free option, which will reduce cleaning even more due to no fouling from chemicals.
Maintaining a clean cooling tower through regular cleaning and disinfection provides several benefits that save money:
- Minimizes energy and maintenance costs
- Helps improve microbiological control
- Extends both tower and HVAC system life
- Enhances both tower and HVAC system reliability
