Keeping the indoor air clean is important in health care environments. AAON offers pre-filters and final filters up to MERV14 on most products and even HEPA final filters on the RZ Series rooftop equipment. UV lights can also be used for air disinfection. Exhaust air fans can be used to help manage building pressure. Positive differential pressure in the room with respect to adjacent spaces is necessary to promote operating room protection and prevent microorganisms’ entrance from adjoining rooms (cross-contamination).
Specifications of certain surgeries, for instance, heart surgery, requires low ambient temperatures. Surgical rooms often need to be much colder than waiting rooms. AAON has the equipment and controls to fit either situation.
