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.
