Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) In 2020: What To Look For In Your HVAC System


HVAC Cleaning and Quality

2020 has been a wild year, with regularly shifting guidelines and best practices, new policy changes, and constant health and safety guideline changes. Over the course of the year, we have been monitoring indoor air quality (IAQ) guidelines and recommendations as the pandemic has evolved. It has become clear that clean air will be a focal point for limiting the spread of coronavirus and any other seasonal airborne viruses.

Despite all the work done so far, winter is approaching and this means more time spent indoors. With this shift, our friends at Belimo have put together a checklist to help you make sure your indoor air quality is at its best. You can find the full pdf checklist here.

Many issues with IAQ are easier to update than you may think. By ensuring your actuators are working properly, that your systems are properly calibrated, and ventilation is routed efficiently, you can ensure your indoor spaces will have the cleanest air possible. 

Your actuators can falter over time, and that perfectly performing component may now be putting undue stress on your system. One major downside of limited air flow is the inability to properly control the humidity. HVAC standards and recommendations show that 40-60% is the ideal indoor air humidity. Making sure your actuators are working properly will ensure you can maintain these levels and reduce particle spread.

The need for cleaner IAQ is more important now than ever. If you want to get the most out of your system and ensure the overall air quality, a system review and calibration may need to be done. It’s better to have an HVAC system running at full capacity than to worry about viral contaminants, IAQ levels dropping, or airborne droplets spreading through your air systems.
