CRE energy efficiency has become increasingly important over the past few decades. With more efficient air handler systems, facility owners can dually benefit from energy savings and an improved experience for building occupants. But the global pandemic also forced building owners into rethinking indoor air quality. HVAC systems can easily spread viruses in a building since indoor air might be recirculated for efficiency.

In this GlobeSt. article, published on August 09, 2023, Corey Myers, CIH, discusses how building owners can implement sustainable indoor air quality that also reduces potential airborne pathogens.
