Air Conditioner Cleaning (PTAC)

Hotel Air Conditioner cleaning (PTAC) quickly improves HVAC performance, while cutting energy costs.

That’s why Fibercare has been offering air conditioning (PTAC) cleaning to the nationwide hotel industry for the past decade. Industry studies have shown that the cleaning of Packaged Terminal Air Conditioning (PTAC) units in hotel rooms can offer significant financial savings while also ensuring a clean, safe, and comfortable stay for guests. Under-maintained PTAC units consume approximately twice as much energy to provide guests’ a comfortable environment in turn, elevating energy consumption and costs.

Benefits of Air Conditioner cleaning (PTAC):

  • According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), energy represents the single fastest-growing operating cost in the lodging industry. The EPA estimates that a 10 percent reduction in energy consumption would be equivalent to increasing RevPAR by $0.60 for limited service hotels and by more than $2 for full-service hotels.
  • U.S. Department of Energy cites that “…air conditioning and lighting alone make up half of a hotel’s electricity consumption.”
  • The American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) cites that “…energy savings as high as 25 percent may be attained from running clean heating, ventilation, and air conditioning.”
  • Hotel operators can reduce energy consumption up to 25 percent and significantly improve indoor air quality for guests by maintaining clean PTAC units.

The Fibercare Air Conditioner cleaning (PTAC) Process:

  • Equipment Used – Fibercare uses truck mounted equipment that enables a high pressured cleaning for a steam cleaning process.  The water temperature used to clean the units is 200° F.  This heat contributes greatly to ensuring the breakdown of all debris within the unit.  The vacuum strength from the truck mounted equipment ensures proper and full extraction of all debris.
  • Chemical Used – Our process is GREEN.  We use Industrial Strength Simple Green, a biodegradable, non-acidic* coil cleaner.  When sprayed on the PTAC unit, the cleaner breaks down the debris located in the coils.
  • Procedure – The steps of our cleaning process follow PTAC manufacturers’ specifications.  We work very closely with Amana, GE, Carrier and LG to ensure our procedure, equipment, and chemical is in accordance with each manufacturer’s maintenance requirements.
