On Wednesday’s edition of the Daily Grind livestream, Chad Smith, Director; Business Development, Lennox National Account Services, discussed the important role HVAC systems play when re-opening facilities to the public.
Since 1895, Lennox has built reliable, innovative heating and cooling systems to help businesses reduce operating costs while maintaining comfort.
“We need to definitely consider airflow when re-opening multi-site facilities after COVID-19,” said Smith. “First, there are numerous resources available as we begin to reopen stores. These come from ASHRAE, the CDC, EPA etc., and there are so many different sized buildings to consider from small mom and pop shops to big box stores. However, there are a few important HVAC things to consider before re-opening:
1) Outside air and design – critical to efficiency and stopping the spread of COVID-19
2) Ensure exhausts inside the building are working properly
3) Maintain the HVAC, even when facilities are closed
4) Ensure suppliers can safely access rooftop units
These are critical to maintain both dark stores and those operating currently. Just as important is to stay plugged into connexfm.com to stay up to date with all the latest COVID-19 information. Connex can also help with wonderful resources and a list of partners and suppliers as we move through this crucial time,” concluded Smith.
