Proven Air Filtration Practices to Protect Your Building from COVID-19

  • Expert Tips

There are many technologies that claim to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19. Solutions and technologies vary, especially when it comes to air filtration and ventilation. Companies are finding themselves in various stages of the pandemic recovery life-cycle. Just as buildings vary, solutions for preventing the spread of COVID-19 should be customized to fit the facility’s needs.

For example, the type of air filter in a building can greatly impact the spread of COVID-19. Most facilities currently use a MERV 8 or MERV 9 filter (MERV = Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value). However, testing from ASHRAE has shown that a MERV 13-16 is the best option for protecting building occupants from spreading airborne infectious diseases. Given than all facilities vary, it is important to consult with an HVAC expert to build an air filtration solution to protect your occupants.
