Air Conditioning and Ventilation During the Coronavirus Pandemic

By law, all employers must ensure that the workplace receives an adequate supply of fresh air, and that remains the case during the current Coronavirus pandemic.

According to information provided by the Government Health and Safety Executive, good air circulation and ventilation in your premises is critical in helping to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Ventilation

Consider simple ways of improving the circulation of fresh air around your premises. For example, where it’s practical and safe to do so, open external windows and doors (except fire doors).

Provided that there’s good ventilation and fresh air in the area, the risk of viral transmission through the use of desk and ceiling fans is extremely low. So, to prevent pockets of stagnant air forming in occupied areas, use desk or ceiling fans.

Air Conditioning

The risk of COVID-19 spreading via air conditioning systems is extremely low, provided that there’s sufficient fresh air and ventilation.

So, you should continue to use most forms of air conditioning systems as you would normally. However, if you use a centralized ventilation system that extracts and circulates air around different areas of your business, you should deactivate the recirculation function and use a fresh air supply instead.

You don’t need to adjust air conditioning systems that mix fresh air with extracted air and recycle it, as that increases the fresh air ventilation rate. Also, there’s no need to alter the systems in portable units or individual rooms, as these operate on 100 percent recirculation. However, you should ensure that a good supply of fresh air ventilation to every room is maintained.
