What is Biofilm?
Also known as “bio-slime,” biofilm is a sticky microbial mass found on HVAC coils, drain pans, and ductwork. It is secreted by communities of microorganisms, bacteria, molds, and fungi that naturally gather in your HVAC system.
- An insulator, reducing efficiency of heat exchange
- It fills interstitial spaces, increasing pressure drop across an HVAC coil
- It produces sulfite-reducing bacteria, causing corrosion to an HVAC system
The air passing through a contaminated HVAC system carries bacteria, molds, and other infectious particles throughout the building.
Biofilm is resistant to physical cleaning and chemical disinfectants.
The Financial Impact of BioFilm
The thicker the biofilm, the higher the costs in energy consumption. A layer of biofilm equal to the width of a human hair (70-150 microns) can reduce energy efficiency by 5.3%.
A layer of film 900 microns thick can reduce energy efficiency by 32.2%.
If your building can benefit from an automated, chemical-free cooling coil cleaning system,
Improved Indoor Air Quality
Because working individuals spend about 90% of their time indoors, health risks from indoor air pollution may be far higher than from outdoor pollution.
$145 billion dollars per year.
The Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory states that illnesses related to polluted indoor air cost the United States’ economy more than $145 billion dollars per year.
ASHRAE recently weighed in on the benefits of UV light by recognizing the health benefits of UV-C as demonstrated by several studies.
“The technology is a potentially beneficial option that building owners should consider installing.”
How would improved air quality benefit the health, comfort, and work performance of the people in your building?
CoilCare UV solutions prevent microorganisms from growing by destroying their ability to replicate.
For more information, see “How CoilCare Works,” below.
Long-term Health Benefits
BioZone’s patented solutions use a mix of technologies, including ultraviolet light.
UV light exists in Nature as a powerful and effective disinfectant, perfectly designed to destroy odors, bacteria, viruses, mold, and mildew, and to break down unwanted chemicals and compounds.
HVAC disinfectant solutions which rely on UV light are proven to promote the following positive effects:
- Reduced microbial contamination within HVAC systems by more than 90%
- Lower respiratory illnesses among occupants by more than 40%
- Natural solution to the problem of drug-resistant and chemical-resistant infectious diseases
Automatic Coil Cleaning
Hands-free, chemical free, the CoilCare system never stops cleaning. CoilCare continues to disinfect while the HVAC system is in operation, further reducing any downtime due to maintenance.
CoilCare minimizes human error for missed surfaces or insufficient chemical contact times, and no specialized training is required for its operation.
Benefits of Automated Coil Cleaning
- Lower energy bills from cleaner coils
- Fewer breakdowns and less wear-and-tear on your system
- Longer HVAC system life
Automated coil cleaning results in energy savings, lower repair bills, and increased system lifespan. Talk to someone from BioZone today about how your CoilCare system can more than pay for itself.
Heat Transfer Efficiency
(Source: BioZone case study, available upon request)
Using CoilCare begins to immediately improve the overall system performance, returning an HVAC system to peak thermal efficiency in several areas:
- Improvements in Chilled Water Delta T
- Lower energy bills
- Reduction in pressure drop and improvement in air velocity
CoilCare can increase the efficiency of heat transfer from air to water by up to 76%
Immediate Financial Benefits
Installing CoilCare in a commercial business location can bring significant savings to a maintenance department budget.
Hiring outside HVAC contractors for coil cleaning costs from $350 to $600 per coil; facilities with dozens of HVAC systems can spend tens of thousands of dollars annually on coil cleaning. BioZone’s customers realize return on investment in several areas, including:
- Human element – The Coilcare system cleans coils 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, automatically, saving significant labor and cleaning material costs while freeing up staff for other building maintenance projects
- Heat transfer – Improving the coil’s heat transfer abilities by using UV light to eliminate mold on coils can potentially return a payback in efficiency gains in as little as six months. Chillers are required to operate less.
- Improved system pressure – Removing biofilm increases the air velocity up to 9 percent, resulting in an HVAC system with the high static pressure across the coil for which it was designed.
- Longer equipment replacement cycles – Clean coil extends the life of the entire HVAC system.
- Energy savings – BioZone customers typically report up to a 25% energy savings. ASHRAE studies show similar results.
Total Cost of Ownership
A CoilCare system can pay for itself in less than 1 year.

The BioZone Technology Advantage
How CoilCare Works
CoilCare irradiates the surfaces of HVAC evaporator coils with specific frequencies of ultraviolet light, a natural germicide.
The UV light inactivates microorganisms and breaks down organic residue, preventing growth and keeping coils clean. In doing so, CoilCare can restore coil performance and extend the life of the coil. Clean coils operate at the peak performance level to which they were designed.
Keeping coils clean of biofilm and other contaminants ensures indoor air quality and significant savings in maintenance and energy costs.
A Powerful Technology Ingredient
Installation at a Glance
CoilCare is simple to install and maintain.
Designed to be mounted downstream or upstream of cooling coils and air filters, CoilCare is a stationary installation, providing high operational stability.
Each system comes equipped with a UV lamp and a photon concentrator, a polished aluminum reflector which is designed to direct all available UV light on the cooling surface. The power supply is water-resistant, built to operate in the humid environment of a commercial-grade HVAC enclosure.
All systems can be designed with multiple commercial-grade or residential-grade human factor safety features, including an interlock switch which prevents the system from operating while the access door is open.
CoilCare is customizable to any HVAC system.
The quantity and positioning of the UV lamp modules are specific to every installation, and is determined by the dimensions of the coils and other HVAC system design specifications.
