AIR CONDITIONING ESSENTIAL MAINTENANCE & COVID-19

NOT having a well-maintained HVAC system in commercial buildings during the COVID-19 pandemic can pose a risk.

The virus is known to be spread mostly by droplets on surfaces, however, there is a possibility of airborne transmission of the COVID-19 virus spreading as droplet nuclei (2.5 to 10 µm) can remain suspended in the air for hours and therefore can be entrained into HVAC systems.

Maintaining air quality at Yarraville-Footscray Bowls Club

CFM Air Conditioning changed over the evaporative cooler pads for Yarraville Bowls Club to maintain a healthy and comfortable air quality.

Most people think that they are saving money by leaving old pads in the unit as long as possible, but ultimately it is costing them more money in the long run by having to change the entire cooler, instead it’s best to change them regularly as Yarraville Bowls Club do.

CFM Air Conditioning are proud to announce we picked up Happy Days Narre Warren Early Learning/child care centre for preventative Maintenance.

Why is it important to provide healthy air in Child Care Centres?

Poor indoor air quality can cause many health risks. Children are at risk of falling sick due to impurities in the air they breathe and the health risks are too great for any centre to ignore. We all want healthier and happier children!

Some of the benefits are:

  • Improved general health
  • Less sick days
  • Better learning ability
  • Low teacher turnover

These are only some of the many benefits that a child care centre can have for providing healthy air. It therefore is the centres’ responsibility to ensure it has the best IAQ.

HVAC for Healthcare: Preventing Disease Transmission

Minimise the transmission of infectious disease with our comprehensive HVAC for Healthcare solution

Do you manage hospital facilities or contracts? Read on.

Until mechanically removed by specialist ventilation systems, airborne droplet nuclei and infection-carrying dust particles remain suspended in the air, circulating on air currents and slowly settling in and around hospital grounds.

Infection may then occur with inhalation by staff, patients and visitors, even those seemingly dislocated from the source of the infectious particles. Even with the departure of the infectious source, dust-borne particles contaminated by infectious agents such as dried sputum and other secretions, may build up and cause disease transmission later in time.

This is where a comprehensive heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system with reliable handling and maintenance comes to the rescue, helping to prevent hospital-associated transmission of infectious microorganisms including:

  • Measles virus
  • Varicella virus
  • Mycobacterium tuberculosis

Comprehensive HVAC for Healthcare solution

Here are some major points to consider when you own, manage, work around or swim in indoor pools and aquatic centres.

Environmental quality involves study of the relationship between:

  • Indoor air quality
  • Energy use
  • Thermal comfort
  • Ventilation
  • CO2 levels

With our extensive experience in HVAC for aquatic centre pools (listed below), we have found that it is essential to manage temperature, heat loss, humidity and water evaporation to ensure that your swimmers are comfortable and the Australian Standards (2002) and any relevant compliance rules are met.

We know how to balance all pool-related factors to help you achieve an energy efficient business with a quality swimming experience.

Minimise bacteria and discomfort with expert HVAC for aquatic centre pools

There is more than meets the eye with quality swimming and aquatic centres.
