During the pandemic, nearly every industry faced new challenges and discovered new opportunities. The HVAC industry is no exception. This article aims to find proper solution to mitigate and try to eliminate the airborne infection risk during pandemic such COVID-19. In this article am suggesting using heat recovery wheel with the air handling units which are serving Emergency department & public waiting area, despite the normal conditions which are under the traditional rules and standards of HVAC codes in healthcare facilities allowing to return airborne with fresh supply air.
