The Australian Institute of Refrigeration, Air conditioning and Heating (AIRAH) has created a frequently asked questions page on its website to address common queries surrounding Covid-19 and air conditioning, refrigeration and other HVAC&R systems.

The page, which is regularly updated as more information becomes available, addresses some of the concerns people have related to the spread of coronavirus and whether such systems could play a role.

The page answers questions such as: Can Covid-19 be transmitted through air conditioning systems, and should special filters be installed in offices to help control its spread?
