We are now in the aftermath of the countrywide lockdown imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic and technologies are emerging which are being considered to mitigate or minimise the risks from the SARS-CoV-2 virus; some of these technologies are being proposed for inclusion in HVAC systems.
Current guidance includes CIBSE’s Covid-19 Ventilation Guidance. This guidance is useful for owners, occupiers as well as designers and installers and includes advice for fan coil units: “However, if there is a good outdoor air ventilation supply (either mechanical or natural) to the room/zone then the action of the fan coil unit fan will help de-stratify the air and reduce the chance of pockets of stagnant air, helping to dilute any airborne pathogens.” (page 18 - CIBSE Covid-19 Ventilation Guidance Version 3 13 July 2020)
