IAQ management and air quality issues
IAQ management in any enclosed and air conditioned space has always been important, the awareness of the IAQ has increased with Covid-19. Typically, traditional air conditioning only focuses on comfort and not on air quality, thus technologies for addressing microbial and VOC related IAQ are a must.
Emerging technologies towards improving IAQ and energy efficiency
While UV systems have been used over 40 years in the west, this technology has become prominent in India in the last few years to address microbial reduction and pandemic control. TiO2 Nano particle based technology that helps in VOC reduction has also become prevalent. Installation of UV systems on cooling coils of AHU’s have the additional impact of keeping the coils clean and thereby has the impact on reducing the energy consumption of the HVAC system.
