The recent Covid 19 pandemic has heightened awareness of the spread of respiratory viruses and has placed scrutiny on indoor air quality. These concerns have led the facilities team in many organisations to take proactive action, to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of all employees and visitors.

While planning the safe return of large numbers of employees to the workplace; many companies and organisations are focussing on the quality of the indoor air in their buildings. It goes without saying, that the priority is the need to make indoor air free from viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens. As a result, attention has turned to finding a solution for the air conditioning units located throughout buildings, some of which have been switched off during lockdown.

The innovation

Many air conditioning system manufacturers are developing “cleansing” technologies and innovations for incorporation into new air conditioning units.  Here at Cool Services, we are successfully installing an air purification unit into existing air conditioning units. This unique, brand-new technology utilises UV lamps to sterilise the air every time it passes through the air conditioning unit. It has been developed to be retrofitted into air conditioning ceiling cassette units of varying brands and ages, and provides a solution for existing air conditioning units.

Why Choose Cool Services?

Cool Services is an air conditioning services specialist with more than 43 years’ experience of installing and maintaining systems in commercial buildings. Our role in helping businesses upgrade to self-sterilising units means we liaise with the manufacturer and install the air purification technology into your air conditioning units.  

Ben Cheadle, Project Manager at Cool Services said, “the technology is a very clever piece of kit and retrofitting it into existing ac units keeps capital costs down and minimises disruption to the daily operation of the workplace”.

The Benefits

The sterilisation units once commissioned, have been shown to provide a 99% kill rate of airborne bacteria and viruses. This offers considerable peace of mind for building operators and owners. Importantly, the added purification units do not have any impact on the energy efficiency or performance of the existing air conditioning ceiling cassettes and can be easily installed by a professional air conditioning company.

The deployment of an air sterilising unit within the existing air conditioning unit, is a cost-effective addition to the public health and hygeine steps a business can take, to maintain a healthy and Covid-secure workplace.
