Air conditioning is everywhere. Large heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems cool our buildings; small central air conditioning systems chill our homes and compact systems create comfortable climates in vehicles, boats, cranes, excavation and farming equipment.
HVAC designers charged with the task of developing efficient and odor controlling products lean toward copper and brass materials because of their antimicrobial properties.
“The choice of HVAC materials can affect the smell of the system. Dark, moist environments breed bacteria and fungi that are widely recognized causes of foul odors and reduced efficiency of HVAC systems.” Phc News – March 2010
