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.

Environmental issues are now becoming regular headline news and every industry should now be taking steps to tackle the potential implications we could all face in the future.

For over the past decade Aircare have been supplying heat pump equipment energy rated A/A, A+/A+ (or better) minimising energy use and emissions, however even though the refrigerants available are environmentally friendly they still have a GWP (Global Warming Potential).

Aircare is now offering clients the option of using natural refrigerants including R32 based on methane, this refrigerant is not environmentally damaging and has a very low GWP (Global Warming Potential).  Over the past few months Aircare have installed many systems using R32 with no problems encountered and positive client feedback.

CO2 (R744 ) will soon be offered as an option on industrial plant, this natural refrigerant which is pure carbon dioxide has zero effect on the environment with an insignificant GWP of 1.

R744 operates at extremely high pressures and is unlike any refrigerant commonly used in the HVACR industry although CO2/R744 has been around for over a century.  To ensure Aircare is ready for the “natural refrigerant revolution” our Consultant Engineers are attending CO2/R744 technical training courses this month, this will ensure Aircare remains “ahead of the game” and we can offer clients environmentally engineered solutions at the design stage.
