HVAC maintenance can help reduce spread of viruses


The pandemic has brought into focus the importance of HVAC systems to provide comfort but also to protect health.

With widespread evidence that pathogens such as Coronavirus are airborne and can remain suspended in the air for some time, now is the time to revaluate your air conditioning systems and ensure that indoor environments are well ventilated.

The government has advised schools, colleges and universities to take reasonable steps to help mitigate the spread of Coronavirus and recommends enhancing cleaning and ventilation arrangements. Increasing the supply of fresh air and preventing stagnant air in occupied spaces is also highly recommended by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

Many facilities and health estate managers are proactive and switching systems to full fresh air and purging buildings overnight by running at lower speeds. Now more than ever it important to have a planned preventative maintenance strategy in place that includes checking humidifiers, cleaning duct work as well as dampers and coil cleaning.

A comprehensive maintenance programme protects your assets by flagging any potential issues early on and preventing any system failures but also ensures longevity and a good return on your investment.
