1. What is the best way to go about improving the air in my building?
It is as simple as increasing ventilation, adding filtration and utilizing UVC-solutions. For ventilation, it is important to increase it to as much as possible without reducing energy efficiency. Filtration should be optimized to at least a MERV-13 but a HEPA filter offers the best results. Lastly, utilizing an effectively designed UVC-solution is vital to disinfecting harmful pathogens that contribute to infections and poor IAQ outcomes. The combination of these three elements is peer-reviewed, scientifically to improve your indoor air.
2. How do I know your solution is working?
It is important to work with a trusted manufacturer of IAQ/disinfection solutions with credible 3rd party independent testing data from government agencies, engineering societies, academic institutions, ISO certifications, etc.
Design and field measurements with monitorization are key for verification. Processes should involve real time measurements using software for complex calculations with measurable field results.
Examples of measurement tools: UV Photometer, Radiometer, UVC-WatchDog, and Controllers.
