Securing the outdoor air intakes is a critical line of defense in limiting an external chemical, biological or radiological attack on a building. See Figure 2-1. Figure 2-1. Protecting Outdoor Air Intakes Source: NIOSH a. Relocate outdoor air intake vents. Relocating accessible air intakes to a publicly inaccessible location is preferable. Ideally, the intake should be located on a secure roof or high sidewall. , adjacent retaining walls, loading docks, and handrails). , into the building. b. Extend outdoor air intakes.
This decreases collection efficiency and defeats the intended purpose of the filtration system. Filter bypass is often caused by poorly fitting filters, poor sealing of filters in their framing systems, missing filter panels, or leaks and openings in the air-handling unit between the filter bank and blower. By simply improving filter efficiency without addressing filter bypass little, if any, benefit is provided. • Cost is another issue affected by HVAC filtration systems. , initial installation, replacement, operation, maintenance, etc.
For example, many HVAC systems use an energy savings mode on the weekends and at night to reduce outside air supply and, hence, lower building pressurization. In cold climates, an adequate and properly positioned vapor barrier must be ensured before any pressurization to minimize condensation is The Role of HVAC in a Chemical, Biological, or Radiological Attack 45 attempted. This is important to prevent mold and other problems. All of these factors—leaky envelope, negative indoor air pressure, energy savings mode—influence building air infiltration and must be considered when the building is tightened.
