Known shortcomings of modern HVAC systems and existing indoor air quality (IAQ) may be a major contributor to the transmission of the COVID-19 virus. By acknowledging this part of the problem through investment and new diligence by all citizens, as well as understanding the role of weather patterns and human reactions to them (while continuing strategies to mitigate community spread), we can mitigate the economic and social upheaval associated with this pandemic, while hardening our building indoor air quality against future pandemics.
- Understand the basic fundamentals of Indoor Air Quality.
- Understand the role of outdoor air environment and how we react to it in the spread of Covid-19.
- Understand the role of basic fundamental HVAC principles (i.e. belt tension, outdoor air dampers working properly, etc) in the spread of Covid-19.
- Understand the role of technology to harden the IAQ of facilities.
