Over the past several days many clients and customers have asked our advice concerning the effect the Corona virus may have with heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems.

Aircare is of the opinion that a well maintained HVAC system should help capture contaminated airborne particles within the filtration systems incorporated in most systems, however no HVAC system (with the exception of specialist medical & pharmaceutical systems) can be considered the major defence against any airborne virus.

During routine maintenance visits Aircare engineers treat air conditioning systems with anti-bacterial chemicals and tablets, again this should help reduce the risk of contamination.

As the UK and many other countries “enter the unknown” with the far reaching implications of this virus, we have taken the precaution of closing our offices to visitors, cancelling all non-urgent meetings, site visits and surveys.  We are following guidelines provided via the government and NHS medical advisors, and at time of writing Aircare is operating as normal, however this shall most likely change day on day as advice and government guidelines change.

Going forward Aircare shall remain operational regardless and has been appointed as a critical service provider for pharmaceutical and medical sites.  We cannot speculate on the overall long term implications this virus will bring other than Aircare is a strong company and will manage the situation on a day by day basis as necessary.
