Analysis of different recommendations on operation and maintenance of HVAC systems

Many authorities and associations are publishing guidance documents on how to operate and maintain HVAC systems considering the COVID-19 pandemic. These guidance documents are updated at irregular intervals. An analysis of a selection of these guidance documents shows inconsistencies between them, but also a common core of recommendations: to increase ventilation rates, extend operating times, and limit recirculation.

The IEA has issued its World Energy Outlook 2020 that also looks at the impacts of the COVID-19 crisis. Its analysis show that in countries in lockdown, the energy demand declined by 18-25% on average. IEA explores a scenario that quantifies the energy impacts of a widespread global recession caused by months-long restrictions on mobility, and social and economic activity. This results in a 6% energy demand contraction - the largest one in 70 years in percentage terms and the largest ever in absolute terms. The impact of COVID-19 on energy demand in 2020 would be more than seven times larger than the impact of the 2008 financial crisis.

Eurovent and REHVA call on all relevant authorities in the EU and globally to recognise the manufacturing, distribution, installation, maintenance and repair of HVACR equipment as essential business activities and therefore exempt them from COVID-19 shutdown orders and travel restrictions. HVACR equipment supports critical infrastructure in the healthcare, food cold chain, data centre and building sectors notably. Prolonged shutdown of HVACR manufacturing activities might have severe consequences during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.
