Experts say indoor air quality, ventilation is important amid COVID-19 pandemic

KALAMAZOO, Mich. — The coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic was changing the way the public thinks about indoor air quality and ventilation.

Experts in indoor air quality and in heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems have known for many years the importance of proper filtration and air flow in creating good quality indoor air. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, more people in the general public were looking for ways to avoid transmitting and contracting COVID-19.

Cold, winter weather could make avoiding COVID-19 more difficult for people living in West Michigan. Understanding more about HVAC systems and how virus could be spread indoors could help.

"The colder it gets outside, the more you have to return air from inside the building in order to condition it," Susan Lindemann, Kalamazoo College's Facilities Management director and chief sustainability officer, said.

Humidity and dryness in the air are a concern in the winter, according to Lindemann.

"The colder and dryer it gets outside, the more difficult it is for the equipment to do what it needs to do and that's why coming inside a pose is more of a risk to us," Lindemann said.
