Webinar – The HVAC system’s role in improving environmental air quality in buildings of all types

May 11 @ 12:30 pm - 1:15 pm

The time has come to fully recognize the presence of airborne contaminants in the indoor environment, including but not limited to the virus SARS-CoV-2 which results in the disease COVID-19. Concern now revolves around recent guidance suggesting that we have not seen evidence of SARS-CoV-2 transmission through HVAC systems, which could mean it is not being removed from the space and returned to HVAC unit mounted air cleaning devices to be treated. It appears it may be remaining in the occupied environment as an ongoing issue of concern to people breathing that air. What does this mean to facility management and HVAC professionals looking to proactively improve indoor settings to help reduce the risk from airborne contaminants? This presentation will make available the most recent information on the subject, and it will help address what we can consider doing to help produce more productive built environments.

This webinar will explore the following questions:
  1. What is the source of information and current guidance that may help us better understand how to improve indoor environments of all types?
  2. What are some traditional methods of HVAC system design that may already be effective, and how can they be improved upon?
  3. What are some considerations that should be addressed when applying any advance indoor air quality technology tasked with helping to improve the indoor environment?
  4. What are the latest methods and technologies which have been successfully and cost-effectively applied in real world indoor building environments?
