With all of the concerns lately regarding airborne viruses, we want to make sure everyone has a basic understanding of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) and the various HVAC related solutions to help improve IAQ. Not only will we discuss how to use HVAC to help mitigate SARS-CoV-2, but also other types of germs and pollutants. We can use ventilation, filtration, and purification in combination with each other to make the indoor air almost as clean as fresh outdoor air.
