Proper Commercial Ventilation and Airborne Contamination Control

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. 

“Antiviral and antibacterial equipment is the new benchmark,” explains Seth Rawson, COO of Capital Heating & Cooling, “the Capital Cares initiative is developed with that in mind. We will do everything we can to partner with commercial and residential customers, within the local community.”

Within this program, technicians use certified indoor air quality analysis to configure and optimize ventilation systems. 

Seth Rawson continues, “Having one of our expert service technicians review a system is a lot like taking your vehicle to a master mechanic. We look, listen and perform diagnostic testing, which often reveals more information than you would think possible. With the analysis in hand, our team develops a solution customized to the client’s needs.”  

Our certified HVAC experts install UV lights, Photocatalytic Carbon Oxidation units, air exchange vehicles, high-grade filters and other measures, to guarantee the best indoor air quality possible. 

Air Ionizers destroy contaminates and cluster tiny particles that filters alone can’t catch.

Photocatalytic Carbon Oxidation (Trifecta Air Purifier) uses a combination of activated-carbon, UV light, and advanced oxidation to disinfect and eliminate indoor air odors, allergens and molds, without harmful chemicals, perfumes, or ozone.

ERVs (VentilateAire) operate on an air-to-air exchange of bringing fresh air in while sending contaminated air out.

Combined, these systems maximize health and comfort benefits, for both residential and commercial locations.
