Purification and Treatment of HVAC | Negawatt Energy Solutions

With COVID-19 not looking like going anywhere, we have been asked about the availability of HVAC treatment systems to minimise the risks of exposure in Corporate, Hospitality and Retail Environments.  We have been looking at an air purification system for HVAC, it sits in the ducts to filter and sanitise, and can be programmed to sterilise areas overnight when unoccupied by pumping the spaces full of Ozone.  The manufacturer claims it kills corona viruses but this has not yet been tested and verified by the TGA.  There is also a wall mounted unit available that sits within occupied spaces.

During the day, air is purified through the process of photocatalytic oxidisation, eliminating all bacteria, germs and microorganisms.  At night, a fully automatic ozone treatment ensures complete sterilization of, not only the air, but all surfaces, including machinery and equipment plus furniture such as tables, chairs, benchtops, handrails etc, reducing viral load by up to 99%.  A smart phone app allows control of all parameters and access to data.

Each unit treats up to 400 cubic meters of area so in many buildings, multiple units would be required.

Key Benefits of the system are:

  • Sanitization-removal of bacteria, germs & viruses
  • Reduction of pollen and other allergenic agents
  • Reduction of dust and mould
  • Removal of odours
  • Carbon active filter increases efficiency
  • Leaves no residue and does not stain
  • Fast installation
