Indoor Air Quality in the post-Covid-19 Era
How often does the air in your office space recirculate? Do you know? Here in the BVI, as air-conditioning becomes pervasive, and operable windows slowly disappear, the answer is often “forever”. No, I’m not kidding. Forever. There are no set regulations on fresh-air exchange in mechanical systems. There is therefore little incentive for building owners and corporate project managers to ensure that it’s included since setting up a system which does not regularly have to cool fresh outdoor tropical air is technically more energy efficient.
