HVAC Equipment is a Common Source of Asbestos Contamination & Exposure

Although they are rarely seen and often ignored, heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems (HVAC) are the life source of your building or facilities.  After all, what could be more important than the HVAC system which circulates the climate controlled air you breathe throughout your facility?

Many buildings built before 1980 contain friable asbestos insulation near and or inside HVAC air intake systems including air ducting! Even worse, sprayed, friable asbestos insulation is often located above ceiling systems which are used as part of a building or facilities return air system causing asbestos fibers to be circulated through the buildings HVAC air ducts. This is a hidden risk within many buildings and facilities in Canada.
