Your building requires safety checks prior to reopening after a period of downtime. To aid you in your preparation, we, at Waves Aircon have compiled a list of steps that you can follow to feel confident in the cleanliness of your building.
In this Pre & Post COVID era, it goes without saying that whole premises is to be cleaned and sterilized, counters, and even the air inside the premises. With AHU and HVAC installed in your premises and building, the task becomes much easier, thanks to do simple and customized design and use of latest technologies by Waves Aircon.
Prior to running your HVAC system at normal capacity again, replace the existing air filters.
Some points of safety, which needs to be taken care of before replacing dirty air filters. First, be sure to wear gloves, a mask, and safety glasses. As you slowly remove the current air filters, take care not to dislodge any of the dust and debris, which can otherwise re-enter the airstream inside the premises.
Disposal of the dirty air filter is next important step. Now that the dirty air filters have been removed, they should be placed into bags and the bags should be sealed properly so as to ensure further protection against the collected dust and particles harming people who are exposed to them.
After the disposal of dirty air filter, place clean air filters inside the HVAC unit. Proper marking is always done to ensure that clean air filter is right where it is supposed to be and must be done by the skilled technician or engineer.
All these additional tips & suggestions on filtration and disinfection of your HVAC system are readily available on the website of Waves Aircon, www.wavesaircon.in for your reference.
Before starting the day, ramp up your HVAC system to normal levels, allowing air to circulate for a couple of hours before people enter the building.
Importance of Air Filtration
As noted above, Waves Aircon always suggest replacing current air filters as part of this preparation process. Further, Waves Aircon always advice businesses to upgrade their filter efficiency to capture even more small particles, helping to keep customers and employees safe from airborne particles.
Tiny virus particles generally piggyback on comparatively larger dust particles or droplets as they travel through a building. In general, virus particles tend to hitch a ride on particles and droplets in the size range of 0.3 to 1.0 microns. Fortunately, air filters with a rating of MERV 14 or higher capture a minimum of 95% of airborne particles in this size range. Particle Efficiency vs. Energy Efficiency.
Generally, you can expect that an upgrade in particle efficiency will cause a decrease in energy efficiency. Besides translating to a higher energy bill, you could also be faced with additional wear and tear on your HVAC equipment. However, thanks to innovative filter design offered by Waves Aircon, a pioneer in AHU manufacturing, you can usually find a way to upgrade your particle efficiency without breaking the bank or causing undue damage to your HVAC equipment.
