What is UVGI? Can it Curb COVID-19 in your Building?

  • Expert Tips

ASHRAE recommends that building managers and owners consider UVGI (ultraviolet germicidal irradiation). However, Enervise recognizes the implications of protecting occupants from radiation, particularly in high-risk spaces such as senior living facilities, prisons, and hospitals.

Our team of experts understands these implications. It is important to understand that every building requires a unique approach, but here are a few considerations:

  • Determine if a UV system be installed with your current equipment. Enervise can analyze your current system, and understand what retrofits are necessary to ensure a safe installation.
  • Assess the cost for UV system to determine if it is right for your building. Enervise can prepare a formal budget proposal and ensure you receive the best value.
  • Explore UVGI treatment options. Some can effectively take place directly in the unit or the duct work, which alleviates the concern for exposure to UV radiation.

Our team of experts highly recommends a thorough survey of your equipment before a UV system is installed. If you are considering UVGI as a method to protect your building occupants from transmitting COVID-19, please consider these implications and call to discuss with an Enervise team member.
