The Healthcare industry has been concerned about indoor air quality (IAQ) for decades. Infection control and the rise of indoor infectious diseases made ventilation, HVAC, and filtration paramount. More recent global outbreaks accentuated the need to maintain or improve IAQ and how to help detect, remove, dilute, and disinfect pathogenic organisms from the hospital environment.
While specific aspects of a virus’s infectivity, spread, and routes of transmission are still under investigation, proper air filtration remains one important approach to maintaining the quality of indoor air in hospitals — but we must go beyond ventilation and beyond filtration.
What hangs in the balance is vitally important: How do you enhance indoor spaces for healthcare workers and patients while meeting stringent hospital air quality requirements without negatively impacting energy efficiency, the environment, and operating costs?
