Of course, we all want to be as environmentally responsible as we can with our facility cooling systems and treatment programs.
I can see the attraction for going chemical free. But can you take it too far? Is it necessary to go chemical free to be “green?”
Chemical free forms of treatment have been around the industry for years. Many of these have not been proven or do not have a steady track record of positive results. Some almost seem like a late-night TV gimmicky advertisement, promising the world!
We have seen some of these systems work “ok” in specific environments and applications. Great! But we have also seen damage to systems, decreased operating efficiencies, and in some cases, causing environmental concerns such as legionella. Very concerning.
Each of these concerns are the opposite of going green. Ironic, don’t you think?
