Solving Indoor Airborne Disease Transmission Problems Click Here
Mechanical engineers can be proactive in reducing airborne diseases such as H1N1, MRSA, C-Diff and NV through properly designed bathroom ventilation, and supply and exhaust vent placement, coupled with room pressurization, filtration, and sterilization systems, can fight the flight of infectious bacteria and viruses.

Controlling Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) can reduce germs and viruses and, therefore, save lives. By controlling a building’s temperature and humidity, mechanical engineers can be responsible for saving lives that otherwise may have succumbed to deadly bacterial or virus-borne diseases.
Liquid Desiccant Dehumidification Click here
Traditional HVAC systems utililzing dehumidification via cooling coils to deliver 72 degree, 55% rh air, are not only inefficient and expensive, but can deliver mold and bacteria into the occupied air spaces. Liquid Desiccant Dehumidification systems can reduce the cost of dehumidifying air, prevent mold from growing on cooling coils and kill airborne germs before they are distributed into occupied spaces.
How Humidification Affects Health, Mold and Airborne Germs Click here
Too wet? Say hello to mold. Too dry? Bacteria and viruses love it. To hit the correct humidity balance for a “healthy” building, mechanical engineers must achieve the correct building pressurization balance, employ isothermal (and not adiabatic) humidification, and include Liquid Desiccant Dehumidification systems to create “perfect humidity”.
