Article Summary: 

Proper water treatment is essential for HVAC heat transfer equipment in condominiums to reduce operating costs and improve water sustainability. The water used in HVAC systems can contain impurities that lead to mineral deposits on heat transfer surfaces, reducing efficiency and increasing energy costs. Regular inspections of faucets, toilets, and HVAC water systems for leaks are crucial to prevent water waste and high costs. Water treatment programs in HVAC systems aim to recycle and reuse water, reducing waste. Proper water balancing and control of bacteria levels are also important to prevent fouling and harmful bacteria growth. Ensuring efficient HVAC equipment and water usage not only saves money but also helps conserve Earth's most precious resource, water.
