Bird Control for HVAC Equipment

How to Keep Birds Off your HVAC and AC Equipment

Bird Control for HVAC Equipment

The HVAC equipment and air handling units on your property should always be protected from pest birds. HVAC systems filter air into buildings, making them one of the most important parts of the structure to keep bird free. Bird, their droppings and nesting material carry over 60 known transmittable diseases such as E. coli. An unprotected air handling system will carry contaminated particles into the building putting those inside the building at risk. 

Note: It is important to clean away nesting materials and droppings thoroughly before installation of products. 

Birds Nesting on HVAC & AC Equipment

If birds are nesting on or under your HVAC units the best methods will be to install bird netting. This can be easily done by creating a lightweight skeleton around the HVAC unit with PVC pipe. Once the frame has been created you can now attach bird netting around the unit to prevent further nesting.
