Transmission of COVID-19 through the air and HVAC systems is likely. Therefore, it’s been recommended that changes to your building operations be made to reduce your exposure. These operations include:
- Making certain your systems are functional and operating normally during the “stay at home” period and having them inspected and treated by a professional before occupants re-enter a building.
- Performing Air Rate Testing and Validation of Air Change Rates to ensure your systems are operating efficiently and in line with all legal and regulatory requirements.
- Increasing your Air Change Rates per hour, as this can reduce airborne particles in a room up to 90%. Medical environments should implement 6-12 changes per hour. Non-medical environments may require 2-4 changes per hour, but it is best to consult with a professional about the appropriate amount.
