It gets really hot in the summer here in the south. With temperatures in the 90’s and plenty of humidity air conditioning is a necessity for many Georgians. That raises the question though, can air conditioners spread the COVID virus? The latest research from Dr. Edward Nardell a professor in the Departments of Environmental Health and Immunology and Infectious Diseases at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health shows that it possibly can.
We asked Steve Cassell of JSC Enterprises what he thought about the findings. Steve does ac repair in Locust Grove Ga. Steve comments on these two points as follows. “First of all, when you live in the south it gets hot and sticky outside so people will tend to go indoors where it is cooler because the AC is on already.
The experts tell us the more people indoors the greater chance of being infected if they are not practicing safe social distancing. This is because you are literally breathing in the same air they just sneezed or coughed Into.”
He continues, “Secondly, when we do AC repair in Locust Grove Ga our goal is to make sure an ac unit cools the interior air and removes the humidity from it. However, air conditioners were not designed to bring much fresh air into the room.
Now this could be an issue in a business or office environment where there are many people. However, it doesn’t pose the same threat In your home if it’s just you and your family.
So what can a business with employees do to protect their health?
Steve continues, “The best thing you can do is to keep a window or door open with an exhaust fan to circulate some fresh air inside. While this may defeat the purpose of air conditioning in an office it also is the only way to provide the ventilation that you need.”
Steve concludes, “This is why our techs that do AC repair in Locust Grove Ga practice safe social distancing with our clients. We want to do everything we can to protect the health of our employees and clients.”
