One leading manufacturer of bipolar ionization, Global Plasma Solutions, tested their technology against the SARS-CoV-2 virus in a recent independent study. What they found was a 99.4% reduction in virus presence after only 30 minutes of use, proving the power of this type of technology in fighting one of today’s top viral threats.
Coil sanitizing lights are one option available. They’re installed to shine directly on the surface of the unit’s cooling coil and drain pan and are left on 24/7. Air sanitizing lights are installed in the return air duct, cycle on with the air handler blower and are designed to eliminate harmful contaminants “on the fly.”
However, not all HVAC systems are created equal, and not all can handle the most efficient filters. Those that weren’t originally designed to fit higher-efficiency filters may be reconfigured, but a Breathe Easy Illinois contractor will work with you to find the optimal fit for your building’s unique needs. Additionally, filters must be configured properly and replaced regularly to maintain optimal efficiency.
Because forced air affects your entire building, boosting the air change rate is also crucial to your clean air strategy. Higher-efficiency filtration will help, as well as increasing outdoor ventilation through methods like opening doors and windows.
This solution is found in Air Purifiers that uses “Ultra Violet light & catalytic reactions to create ionically charged airborne oxidizers. These highly effective oxidative air cleansers freely circulate throughout indoor spaces to help reduce and eliminate molds, virus, bacteria, microbes, odors and chemical VOC’s (Volatile organic compounds).”
As your preferred Breathe Easy Illinois contractor, we’ve got the training and expertise to help improve ventilation throughout your building, purify the air your occupants breathe and give you (and them) peace of mind. With our industry-leading solutions, you can be sure the air in your building meets today’s strict standards of health and cleanliness.
“As businesses, corporations, associations, and other entities prepare to have their employees return to offices spaces, building owners, operators, and engineers need reliable information on steps they can take to help make the commercial spaces they control as safe and welcoming as possible. A large part of that effort will involve a building’s heating, ventilation, air conditioning (HVAC), and water heating infrastructure. America’s HVAC equipment manufacturers are committed to providing the technologies that can make all public buildings as safe and health-affirming as they can be,” states AHRI.
School should be a safe place for students, teachers, staff, and visitors. A properly installed, properly maintained system, with adequate ventilation using outside air, proper filtration, and appropriate humidity control – all of which are accomplished through readily available technologies — can go a long way toward mitigating potential viral spread according to AHRI. The Building Specialists at Amber are creating customized solutions for local School districts, district offices and classrooms.
