Advance Air & Heat Company, Inc. recently donated service technician time and expertise to prepare two abandoned nursing facilities for COVID-19 patients in New Bedford, Massachusetts.
The facilities, which closed down about a year ago, were prepped for occupancy through the coordinated efforts of city officials and local businesses. Advance Air’s role was to ensure the proper operation of all of the heating and ventilation systems for life safety and to provide fresh air and proper ventilation to the both buildings.
Two teams of technicians worked over a three-week period to troubleshoot and repair several systems, including an oil-fired boiler, make-up air units, air handling units and ductless split systems. All were up and running before deadline.
