Controlling Hospital-Acquired Infection Risk
Hospital-acquired infections present a danger to recovering patients, and hospitals work tirelessly to suppress these risks. The use of specialized filtration appropriate for different areas of the facility can help reduce the level of contaminants in each unique environment. The body’s natural defenses are more vulnerable to particulate matter smaller than .5 microns. We can install a combination of HEPA filters, ionic filters, activated charcoal filters and UV lights to trap, contain and kill contaminants down to .01 microns. Every filter system installation is backed by a 100 percent satisfaction guarantee, and we always stand behind our work.
Healthcare facilities need refrigerated equipment for maintaining specimens, temperature-sensitive medications, vaccines, food and other perishable commodities. Downtime for walk-in coolers, display cases, air curtains, refrigerators and freezers in a healthcare environment is unacceptable, since patient care is at risk. At Northeast Florida Heating & Air, our skilled comfort advisors are equipped with leading-edge diagnostic equipment to quickly locate the source of the problem and make the appropriate repairs. Our technicians have a deep understanding of high-voltage networks and the commercial refrigeration cycle. We always follow through on our commitments, and we provide 24-hour emergency service for serious situations
The link between surgical site infection and ambient air quality is well-established, so a properly maintained ventilation system is an important element in a comprehensive IAQ program.

We provide a number of critical ventilation services:
- Ventilation System Maintenance: Our comfort advisors check the internal components, including cooling coils, intake and discharge grilles, safety cabinets and air filters.
