As the world reopens following the COVID-19 pandemic, government facilities on the local, state, and federal level will face the challenge of providing a safe and hygienic environments.
Many of these facilities offer services in which social distancing will be a challenge and the HVAC systems were certainly not designed with pathogen removal in mind.
Proper selection and installation of filtration technologies can significantly impact these challenging environments.
Air filters remove a range of particle sizes and each time recirculated air passes through a filter, more particles are trapped. When the optimal filter type and efficiency is chosen the HVAC system can dramatically reduce the number of pathogens in the air.
The design of most government offices makes social distancing especially challenging. Although clean air is difficult for individuals to perceive, occupants will feel more at ease knowing that steps have been taken to reduce pathogens from the air.
