COVID 19 Equilibrium Response

As the COVID 19 Crisis emerged, the whole of Australia and the world was coming to terms with the situation. As the world has had to adapt to new ways of doing business, Equilibrium Air Conditioning has been taking the situation very seriously and is putting new policies and procedures in place to keep everyone safe. Some of the things we are doing as an organisation:

Social distancing on site
Masks and gloves on site
Working from home – those employees that are able to work from home (using video conferencing for meetings and other means of technology)
We are using “whatsapp” on sites for getting information to workers on various projects i.e. pre-starts and toolboxes to prevent gatherings of staff and subcontractors.
Regular updates and reminders via email
Minimise the number of employees working in the two offices – they are spread out
For those working in the office we have set up three hand sanitiser stations
Increased the number of days the offices are cleaned

If you are needing some information about COVID 19 & support, please logon to the Australian department of Health website –  https://headtohealth.gov.au/covid-19-support/covid-19
From everyone at Equilibrium Air Conditioning we hope that you all stay safe and help our great National overcome this crisis as soon as possible.

Why is air-conditioning so important during bushfire season?

It’s the bushfire season that will be talked about for years to come and not just because of the tragic loss of life, both human and animal. Air quality conditions, like the fires themselves, have been unprecedented and many commercial HVAC systems don’t have the filters to cope.
Smoke from bushfires is made up of very small particles and gases. These particles can irritate the eyes, nose and throat and penetrate deep into the lungs where they aggravate existing respiratory conditions such as asthma. As a result, we’ve been told by health authorities to “stay indoors” but just how safe is indoors under these unprecedented conditions?
While household air conditioners do not filter the fine particles found in bushfire smoke, commercial HVAC systems are better suited, especially buildings that rely on recirculated and filtered air conditioning systems. This is why agencies have been encouraging people to spend time at shopping centres, cinemas and other large commercial buildings.
However, even large HVAC systems usually do not have filters designed for the types of conditions we’ve been experiencing, with day after day of poor and hazardous air quality. Unfortunately, if bushfire smoke is thick and prolonged, these commercial systems can get overwhelmed.
If your business is in an area that has been affected by bushfire smoke in recent months, it’s highly recommended you have your filters changed out or inspected to ensure they’re performing efficiently. As smoke particles build up in filters, HVAC fans have to use more energy to push the air through and that will be costing you money.
There’s also a risk the filtration system could completely fail if smoke particles are allowed to continue to build up. And with the bushfire season far from being over, not to mention the dust from the ongoing drought, now’s the time to speak to Equilibrium to talk about optimising your filtration performance.t

Indoor air quality and air conditioning

You can’t see the quality of the air you’re breathing in, but it has the potential to significantly impact your health. Indoor air quality (IAQ) affects our health and comfort at home and at work.
What is indoor air quality (IAQ)?
 “The National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) defines indoor air as air within a building occupied for at least one hour by people of varying states of health. This can include the office, classroom, transport facility, shopping centre, hospital and home. Indoor air quality can be defined as the totality of attributes of indoor air that affect a person’s health and well-being.”
 Indoor air quality is measured by; cleanliness of the air (presence or absence of dust, pollen etc.), humidity, temperature control and odour.
In the commercial space, it’s imperative that businesses have effective, energy efficient air-conditioning solutions that are clean and maintained. Most commercial premises have constant human traffic, so IAQ is just as important in the workplace as it is in a residential sense. Poor indoor air quality can negatively impact your health, your comfort levels and your power bills.
Air-conditioning does a lot more than pump out hot or cold air on demand. It also plays a major part in maintaining good IAQ.
What can be done to ensure your air-conditioning system is working efficiently and continually circulating clean air?
 Air-conditioner filters typically require changing at the beginning of both heating and cooling seasons. Quarterly is even better. This is a rather lengthy project when talking about commercial premises, which is why having your system professionally serviced at these intervals is best practice. A clean and full-service including the changing of older, clogged filters will allow the air-conditioner to continue to filter out dust pollen, spores and other airborne nuisances that are detrimental to human health.
Why is air-conditioning cleaning and maintenance so important for IAQ?
Changing the filter is important because dirty filters restrict airflow, forcing your system to work harder. This ultimately brings down the energy efficiency of the system, and increases your power bill. Not only that, but air circulation needs to remain constant for air quality to be maintained. Dirty filters are also known to overheat, causing permanent damage.
Another aspect of indoor air quality that air-conditioning helps to sustain is humidity. Air-conditioners are designed to reduce indoor humidity, which is a known contributor to the growth of mould. Mould is a major threat to IAQ as it can cause substantial health problems.
Health problems that are commonly associated with poor indoor air quality, according to The Australian Government Department of Environment and Energy, include:

Sensory and skin irritation(skin, eyes and throat)
Neurotoxic symptoms (such as; weakness, paralysis, flu-like symptoms, headache, vision loss, memory problems, impaired cognitive function, depression, loss of circulation, imbalance, behavioural problems and OCD)
Hypersensitivity
Odour and taste symptoms

Provided your commercial air-conditioning system is well maintained, clean, and continues to filter the air properly, it should last a long time. Regular cleaning and maintenance will prolong the life of the unit, increase energy efficiency, and sustain good indoor air quality. This will benefit your staff, clients and your bottom line.
