In addition to the work we are doing to help weather the pandemic now, we are always looking to the future of healthier buildings. From partnering with leading experts to study the effects of improving indoor environmental quality on cognitive function to our own investment in R&D into solutions that improve operational efficiency and make buildings healthier.
BUILDING A BETTER, HEALTHIER FUTURE
Access Control Solutions in Support of Healthy Buildings in the Age of Coronavirus
While advanced technologies have greatly improved efficiencies in buildings, the global pandemic has prompted building owners and employers to rapidly evaluate solutions that create healthy and safe indoor environments. Various healthy building technologies are available for building owners and employers to consider that not only prioritize the health of occupants, but also significantly enhance their experience.
Improving IAQ in the New Normal
This white paper is designed to help building owners, facility managers and engineers — no matter the age or condition of their HVAC equipment, controls or building automation systems — frame the questions related to assessing and optimizing indoor air quality (IAQ). Despite new obstacles created by COVID-19, the postpandemic world has also created new opportunities to enhance building health and competitiveness in creating a healthy environment.
Shining a Spotlight on HVAC Ultraviolet Technologies to Fight Disease Transmission
The emergence of SARS-CoV-2, the novel coronavirus responsible for COVID-19, has renewed focus on commercial buildings as a crucial line of defense in fighting the spread of disease. Building owners and engineers who adopt a “layered” strategy of comprehensive planning, strengthened administrative controls, and optimized HVAC systems and practices can improve their capacity to minimize disease transmission in the workplace.
Air Conditioning and COVID-19: Slowing the Spread
A generation of research and experience has proven that when properly maintained and operated, HVAC systems can reduce the spread of viruses. These critical building systems not only provide thermal comfort but, according to the ASHRAE, may even improve resistance to infection. Read our latest white paper on how to ensure proper air purity and distribution in occupied spaces to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
