Regular Air Conditioning Maintenance Reduces Legionella Risk


Chelmsford, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/27/2023 -- Legionella is a threat that every business needs to take seriously today. Since 2015, there have been approximately a thousand confirmed cases of Legionella infection in England and Wales. Because many of the symptoms of Legionella infection are easily confused with something like pneumonia it can be difficult to get a clear sense of the widespread nature of the problem - which can be critical if not caught in time. Due to the severity of potential outbreaks, there is a national surveillance scheme in place in the UK that focuses on controlling local outbreaks. When Legionella is spotted it can be easily treated with antibiotics - as long as it is caught in time. However, the real priority is preventing a Legionella outbreak in the first place and regular air conditioning maintenance is a key part of helping to reduce Legionella risk in this way.

Water and water supply systems are vital when it comes to reducing Legionella risk. While most HVAC systems don't tend to use a direct water supply, Legionella can still be found in the moisture that tends to be part of those systems. It's also important to note that the temperatures of most HVAC systems are ideal for Legionella, which can make a system that has not been regularly maintained a hot spot for the bacteria. Part of this will be ensuring that the HVAC system has been placed in a position where the potential for exposing Legionella organisms has been minimised. And part of the process is putting a regular schedule of maintenance in place. This should include regular inspections and ongoing maintenance, replacing any water-damaged areas, ductwork cleaning and extractor cleaning, replacing air filters, and AHU maintenance.
