hvac sanitization
 

HVAC stands for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. Air quality is an essential consideration in maintaining the productivity, comfort, and health of the occupants and should not be trivialized. If air quality and temperature are not maintained, occupant comfort in the workplace suffers directly affecting productivity and morale.

We all know that when we are cold, we turn the thermostat up for more heat, and when we are hot, we turn the thermostat down. Therefore, the HVAC system maintains our comfort by modifying the room’s temperature.

How to Sanitize your HVAC System?

Not everyone realizes the risk of HVAC-borne germs. In order to prevent yourself and your family from the infection, one must follow these simple steps to keep your HVAC system sanitized:

1. Keep air circulating whenever possible

When one relies solely on HVAC systems for temperature control, one is increasingly relying on recycled air which contains germs. So, keep the air circulating by opening the windows and using ventilation fans.

The HVAC systems must keep occupants comfortable by supplying fresh air to the room. If we introduce a significant proportion of fresh exterior air and alleviate carbon dioxide buildup, occupants experience better health and performance gains.

Studies have shown a direct link between CO2 levels and short-term sick leave in office workforces.

2. Use Ultraviolet light

Ultraviolet light has a strong impact on airborne germs. A lot of people today are adding disinfecting UV light as redundancy in combination with other sanitizing procedures of the HVAC systems.

By installing a high output UVC radiation unit in your HVAC system, we destroy the replication ability of all of the contaminants in your system. 

3. Invest in Air Filtration

All HVAC systems use some filtration to remove particulates from the intake ductwork that pulls air back from your home which is recycled through either the furnace or the air conditioning. So the filters should be replaced if they cannot be cleaned regularly.

Recirculated conditioned air can transport impurities that cause respiratory illnesses in heavily air-conditioned, energy-efficient environments. The HVAC system’s job is to purge the air of impurities and dust by using filters at various stages.

As important as this consideration is in an average office or commercial building, this feature is critical in facilities that contain clean rooms, medical facilities, or hazardous materials 

4. Receive regular HVAC services
