Shelby, North Carolina -- March 21, 2008 -- Most duct cleaning companies started out doing just that – duct cleaning. But over time, many of these companies have found other HVAC maintenance services they can offer their customers. There is a high demand from facility engineers for services that improve indoor air quality and extend the life of their HVAC systems, according to NADCA presenters and attendees at the 19th Annual NADCA Meeting held in San Diego last week.
By incorporating HVAC maintenance services into his business model, Brad Kuhlmann, owner of Midwest Duct Cleaning Services in Kansas City, has successfully grown his company over the last 14 years.
During his Continuing Education Credit training presentation at the conference, “Tips and Techniques: Air Handler Refurbishment”, Kuhlmann detailed the steps to restore a corroded condensate pan utilizing Pancrete, HVAC metal resurfacer.
Like Kuhlmann, other duct cleaning companies have started offering condensate pan restoration to their customers using Pancrete as part of their HVAC maintenance services. Mike White of Clean Air Systems of Louisiana just completed a project restoring the condensate pans of five 50-ton air conditioning systems in a five-story building.
“All the pans in this building were leaning and I was able to level them out with Pancrete. It took me just two nights to restore all the pans. We cleaned out the pans the first night and applied Pancrete the second night. It was a lot cheaper for the customer than replacing those pans with new ones. The customer loved it,” White said.
