Condair is launching a Humidity Fights Flu campaign to promote awareness that an indoor humidity level of 40-60 per cent RH is beneficial in combating airborne infections.
Tim Scott, head of sales at the humidification specialist, said: "There is overwhelming scientific evidence that person-to-person airborne flu infections are significantly reduced when indoor humidity is maintained at 40-60 per cent RH. Yet there is still no legislative requirement for public places or healthcare facilities to manage their humidity levels appropriately and take advantage of this effective weapon in the fight against seasonal flu.
E-CO, the company which pioneered using UVC technology in HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) systems in the UK, has launched a range of new CPD courses for engineers.
E-CO makes systems which use Ultraviolet C light to kill airborne bacteria, viruses and mould spores to improve indoor air quality (IAQ). Its new CPD courses will help engineers understand how to use UVC light in HVAC systems, the energy saving benefits of UVC, IAQ and security against bio-attack and other subjects.
