USES OF HVAC SYSTEMS IN MEDICAL ENVIRONMENTS
Featured Product from Air Innovations, Inc.
Similar to all medical facilities, hospitals are subject to strict hygiene standards. These requirements and restrictions are aimed toward ensuring the health and well-being of all patients, facility employees, and visitors. They may include implementing rigorous cleaning schedules as well as integrating specialized equipment—e.g., HVAC systems—to reduce the risk of contaminants spreading from room to room and patient to patient. When employed properly, HVAC equipment can minimize the transmission of contaminant-laden air, which, if left unchecked, can infect those who come into contact with it. For this reason, high-performance HVAC units are often used in hospitals to prevent the ingress or egress of hazardous compounds.
