New Feature: CAIRS Report
Assess the risk of airborne transmission in your facility with one, simple index score. Our risk indicator uses transmission-related pollutant levels to determine the likelihood of virus survival, with recommendations for how to improve.
What are the experts saying about indoor air quality?
ASHRAE and the CDC recommend
increasing outdoor air ventilation and ensuring systems are providing safe indoor air quality.
Further, it is recommended that
filtration is upgraded to MERV-13 or the highest compatible class for your HVAC system.
When applicable, ASHRAE
recommends considering portable HEPA filtration units or purifiers with UVGI.
Where do you start?
Assess your facility’s needs
Continuous indoor air quality monitoring will point you to problem areas in your facility, eliminating guesswork.
Identify poorly ventilated spaces
Monitor carbon dioxide levels to assess fresh air levels.
Optimize ventilation based on time, occupancy, or activity.
Ensure proper filter performance
Find out if air quality issues arise from indoors or within the HVAC unit. If particulate levels are high, filters may not be performing efficiently.
Implement research-backed solutions
Make decisions using data
Purchasing new clean air technology may be necessary, but it may not. Find out what’s right for you after assessing your baseline health.
Introduce air purifiers if necessary
Air purifiers may be warranted if areas with high particulate levels persist after ventilation and filtration upgrades.
Upgrade filter class if possible
If not, consider implementing air purifying solutions – select priority areas based on your unique conditions.
Ensure that your efforts have paid off.
Test solution effectiveness
Once a new strategy or technology has ben introduced, ensure it works with real-time data.
Tackle new issues head on
Air quality is dynamic – address problem areas proactively with continuous indoor air quality data.
