Managing HVAC Systems to Reduce Infectious Disease Transmission

On Thursday 16th July 2020, ASHRAE Ireland was honoured to welcome Prof. William Bahnfleth, Chair of ASHRAE\’s Epidemic Task Force, to the third instalment of our COVID-19 Technical Seminar Series. The presentation covered a wide range of topics on HVAC-related infection control, and outlining practical guidance for the management of buildings and HVAC systems. Crucially, the guidance generally follows the precautionary principle – “One should take reasonable measures to avoid threats that are serious and plausible.”
