Build Equinox Groundbreaking Research into COVID 19
Build Equinox has been on the frontlines of research and education to battle the spread of SARS-CoV-2 and Covid-19 disease from the beginning of the pandemic’s uncontrolled spread. As we have preached since the pandemic’s earliest days in the US, the virus is airborne, and ventilation is a key to making the indoor environment safe. We must change today’s virus incubator homes and buildings into virus inhibitors!
Now, others are listening to our consistent and clear message, and our list of practical guidelines for improving our homes and buildings. ASHRAE 62.1/62.2, US EPA Indoor airPLUS, Passive House of either flavor, and other building ventilation standards based on odor, not health, are inadequate and lead to high probability of disease transmission. Carbon dioxide concentration be kept at 800ppm or less in all rooms in homes, schools, houses of worship and buildings to reduce contagion concentration. Increase fresh air ventilation now. Improve air filtration now. Sanitize air now.
