Ask a ques­tion to a spe­cial­ist

I want to note right away that the main means to com­bat the epi­dem­ic is per­son­al hygiene and dis­ci­pline. And cli­mate tech­nol­o­gy will help make your stay in the room more com­fort­able and safer.

General recommendations

Accord­ing to the rec­om­men­da­tions of doc­tors, in order to min­i­mize the life­time of virus­es in the air, it is required:

  1. Ven­ti­late the room reg­u­lar­ly, i.e. pro­vide air cir­cu­la­tion.
  2. Main­tain humid­i­ty lev­els 40–60%.
  3. Wipe sur­faces reg­u­lar­ly with dis­in­fec­tant solu­tions.

To imple­ment these rec­om­men­da­tions, expen­sive equip­ment is not need­ed, or a con­ven­tion­al ven­ti­la­tion and air humid­i­fi­ca­tion sys­tem is suf­fi­cient.

And for a more effec­tive fight against coro­n­avirus and oth­er virus­es, includ­ing sea­son­al SARS, there are a num­ber of spe­cial­ized devices, con­sid­er the main ones.

Air disinfectants

Pro­fes­sion­al equip­ment used in med­ical insti­tu­tions or indus­try. They do their job 100%. As a rule, expen­sive, use in every­day life is redun­dant.

Air purifiers and climatic complexes

An obvi­ous cat­e­go­ry of equip­ment designed to puri­fy the air from all harm­ful impu­ri­ties. But it is worth not­ing that they do this with dif­fer­ent effi­cien­cy depend­ing on the fil­ter ele­ments “on board”.

Let’s arrange the fil­ters in order of effec­tive­ness against virus­es:

  1. Pho­to­cat­alyt­ic puri­fi­er (PCO). In sim­ple terms, it is a fil­ter that neu­tral­izes organ­ic pol­lu­tants, bac­te­ria and virus­es, at the mol­e­c­u­lar lev­el, con­vert­ing them into safe com­pounds. At the same time, such fil­ters do not require reg­u­lar clean­ing, only once every few years, it may be nec­es­sary to replace the UV lamp.
  2. HEPA fil­ters. They are effec­tive against dust and many aller­gens, which has a ben­e­fi­cial effect on over­all air qual­i­ty, but they prac­ti­cal­ly do not cope with virus­es, if we talk about house­hold class­es of this type of fil­ter.
  3. Air wash­ers. They also only improve air qual­i­ty by “cap­tur­ing” coarse dust and nat­ur­al humid­i­fi­ca­tion, but do not trap virus­es.

Mod­ern cli­mat­ic com­plex­es use sev­er­al types of fil­tra­tion at once. For air dis­in­fec­tion, choose com­plex­es with a pho­to­cat­alyt­ic fil­ter.

Greater effi­cien­cy can be achieved if the ven­ti­la­tion sys­tem and even domes­tic air con­di­tion­ing are equipped with a pho­to­cat­alyt­ic clean­er.

Ventilation filtration units

Most ven­ti­la­tion units are equipped only with HEPA fil­ters, but there are mod­els with built-in FCF. Sup­ply air is puri­fied from all virus­es and bac­te­ria by 99.9%.

Also, the FKO block is pro­duced as a sep­a­rate mod­ule for inte­gra­tion into the ven­ti­la­tion sys­tem.

The main route of spread of coro­n­avirus (and oth­er res­pi­ra­to­ry infec­tions) is through the air, air­borne droplets or air­borne dust.

The sec­ond method is con­tact, dis­in­fec­tion of hands and sur­faces reli­ably helps from it. Cli­mate tech­nol­o­gy also pre­vents the spread of the virus by air.

Air conditioners with disinfection

Sim­i­lar to ven­ti­la­tion units, the indoor units of mod­ern split sys­tems can have a built-in FCO. Or the FKO block can be pur­chased and installed addi­tion­al­ly. Due to inten­sive recir­cu­la­tion, all the air in the room will be dis­in­fect­ed quick­ly enough.

Our experts will help you choose a device with pho­to­cat­alyt­ic air purifi­ca­tion, based on the para­me­ters and pur­pose of the room.
