Common Questions from Our Customers
Building Automation – “How do I know what we’ve done is working to keep us safe?” Knott Mechanical has developed a cutting- edge COVID-19 mitigation dashboard that measures and displays mitigation steps. Managers can view, monitor, assure the system is working, and make necessary adjustments to maintain a high level of employee safety.
AirFilters – “Will changing our air filters make a difference?” The EPA advises air cleaners and HVAC filters can help reduce airborne contaminants including viruses in a building or small space. Knott Mechanical will advise you on improved filtration options.
Increasing Ventilation – “Should I simply increase the amount or outside air that comes into our building?” According to ASHRAE -Changing system settings and sequences of operation without a good understanding of the effects on system operation could result in unintended consequences. Knott Mechanical can develop a strategy that will maximize the use of outside air without unintended consequences.
UVGI and Bipolar Technology – “Does UV light and ionization really work against COVID-19?” Yes. Research shows using these technologies, combined with other mitigation steps, can decrease the COVID-19 spread in indoor environments. Knott Mechanical can assess and install the technology that is best for you.
Bipolar Ionization What does this technology do to reduce COVID-19 risk? Bipolar ionization releases charged atoms that attach to and deactivate harmful substances like bacteria, mold, allergens, and viruses. It first arrived in the US in the 1970s as a tool to control pathogens in food manufacturing. Research shows that, combined with other mitigation steps, Bipolar ionization can decrease the spread of COVID-19 in indoor environments. Knott Mechanical can install bipolar ionization technology.
Touchless Mechanisms – “What can I implement to reduce the risk of COVID-19 via surfaces?” Knott Mechanical can recommend and install touchless faucets, flush valves, water coolers and other devices.
