USA: Carrier has introduced an expanded suite of advanced solutions to help deliver healthy, safe, efficient and productive indoor environments.
With Covid-19 lockdowns being relaxed and people around the world adjust to a new normal, indoor air quality and building health have been thrust into the spotlight.
Carrier’s Healthy Buildings Program will draw from a comprehensive suite of solutions and services designed to help improve indoor air quality (IAQ), increase outside air ventilation and enable touchless interactions.
In support of this, Carrier has also launched a HealthyBuildings website to help customers consult with Carrier’s experts to take advantage of the broad range of healthy building technologies.
“Covid-19 has reinforced the important role that buildings play in ensuring and protecting public health,” said Dave Gitlin, Carrier president and CEO. “As people return to work, hotels greet guests, schools welcome back students and stores reopen, indoor air quality and safe buildings are of paramount importance. For the economy to successfully recover, people need to have trust in the safety of the buildings they are entering. New technologies like microscopic filtration systems and touchless building controls have gone from nice-to-have conveniences to must-have protections.”
“Through the Healthy Buildings Program, Carrier’s experts will work closely with customers to not only design but operate, maintain and upgrade buildings that protect what’s most important – the health of those inside,” said Rajan Goel, who leads Carrier’s Healthy Buildings Program as the head of Carrier’s Building Solutions Group.
Carrier can offer expert services such as consultation, implementation and continuous monitoring. The company says these services can enable customers to restart, operate, maintain and upgrade their buildings safely and efficiently.
These include a Safe Start Service to help ensure that buildings are ready for occupancy through a recommissioning of HVAC equipment and the implementation of best practices, an IAQ assessment to test air quality and develop and implement upgrades.
Remote airside management can provide continuous validation of IAQ parameters, periodic checks of equipment health and continuous airside commissioning, enabled by a 24×7 command centre.
