LAKE WALES, FL (May 5, 2020) – Natural Air E-Controls, LLC along with Renaissance Worldwide Solutions, LLC, Medical & Regulatory Affairs Specialists, LLC , Aeolian Wind Technologies, LLC, Failure Event Database Search Engine, LLC and the High Alert Institute, Inc. (a 501(c)3 not-for-profit) set forth ventilation & social determinants of health standards post-COVID-19.
On April 8, 2020 CDC Director Robert Redfield outlined the minimum measures that every business should take to minimize the risk of spreading airborne particles and pathogens in workplaces, office, shops and other businesses. “What the CDC has done is that we’ve really looked at the essential workforce, and how to maintain that workforce, particularly at this time as we begin to get ready to reopen, and have confidence in bringing our workforces back to work,” said the CDC director, Dr. Redfield. The CDC Interim Guidance to Businesses and Employers recommends all businesses “increase the amount of air exchanges in the common work areas and other rooms employees share.”
“The COVID-19 pandemic has brought to light the dangers of stale indoor air, poor air quality and the environmental dangers that disproportionately impact the essential workers across the nation,” stated Allison Sakara, Executive Director of the High Alert Institute. “These Essential Workers facilitate the emergency support functions necessary for our survival during disaster and pandemics as well as during the recovery after the stay-at-home orders and quarantines end. It is imperative that every workplace and home follow the recommendations of the CDC for frequent fresh air exchanges with outside air. We must provide for the care and safety of our citizens and ensure that all Essential Workers, First Responders, Healthcare Workers and their families be protected and supported at work and at home.”
Additionally, the World Health Organization (WHO) has determined that environmental factors such as poor indoor air quality, poor water quality and noise pollution are detrimental to the overall health of the world’s population. “At Natural Air E-Controls, LLC, we are proud to be the only company with patented technology to safely increase air exchanges in low-rise business buildings and homes using a sensor-based ventilation controller. Our system can help protect essential workers from COVID-19 infection by optimizing indoor air quality while saving on the overall costs of operating an HVAC system,” according to Mona Kelley, Managing Member of Natural Air E-Controls, LLC. “In addition, we support an Essential Workers Bill of Rights Position Statement as a natural extension of our daily work.”
“The cost to install a sensor based SMART air quality monitor and ventilation control system including sensors, dampers and duct work per home ranges from $2,500 to $3,500 and the cost per business ranges from $2,500 to $5,000,” says Mona. “An incentive COVID-19 Tax Credit would provide low-rise commercial building owners, small businesses and home owners the financial assistance to install the equipment needed to safeguard their health and the health of all who enter their buildings.”
