HVAC Systems and the Spread of COVID-19

Modifications to HVAC Systems (heating system, ventilation system, and air conditioning system) might help reduce the spread of COVID-19 by purifying air, improving ventilation, and managing airflows. To reduce risk in older buildings with ventilation systems that recirculate air:

  • Open doors and windows, even when it’s cold outside. Ideally, open multiple points in enclosed rooms, so air can flow in and out. Use fans and air circulators to speed up the exchange of air through windows and external doors.
  • Use portable air purifiers with HEPA filters.
  • Use filters with a Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) rating of 13 or higher(link is external) in the building’s HVAC system

If You Have an HVAC System:

  • Run the system fan for longer times, or continuously, as HVAC systems filter the air only when the fan is running. Many systems can be set to run the fan even when no heating or cooling is taking place.
  • Check to be sure the filter is correctly in place and consider upgrading the filter to a higher efficiency filter or the highest-rated filter that your system fan and filter slot can accommodate.

  • If your HVAC system has an energy-efficient air-to-air heat exchanger, heat recovery ventilator (HRV) or energy-recovery ventilator (ERV) use it, as they increase ventilation.
  • Each time your heating and cooling system runs, dust, dirt, pollen, and other airborne contaminants are pulled into your duct system. The build-up of these contaminants can cause your duct system to become a breeding ground for bacteria, fungus, mildew and other microbes.

Consider upgrading HVAC System, check up price and installation cost new heating and air conditioning systems.
