Proper Commercial Ventilation and Airborne Contamination Control

Wednesday, August 12th, 2020

Industry agencies are now recommending airborne contamination control for HVAC equipment.

According to the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) “Transmission of SARS-CoV-2 through the air is sufficiently likely that airborne exposure to the virus should be controlled. Changes to building operations, including the operation of heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning systems, can reduce airborne exposures.” Moreover, “ventilation and filtration provided by heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning systems can reduce the airborne concentration of SARS-CoV-2 and thus the risk of transmission through the air.”

In an effort to help local businesses achieve these operational standards, Capital Heating & Cooling is offering the Capital Cares program. Discounted rates are being applied towards installation, repairs and maintenance plans.
