Canwest Waste and Environmental Technologies recently completed the supply & installation of Guardian Air’s Advanced Oxidation Technology throughout our 236 resident Care Home. As a 40 year old, 4 story building we have aging and an inefficient HVAC system that presents many air circulation problems. With two Special Care Villages and an older resident population, we are constantly faced with odour issues and stagnant air pockets. I am pleased to state that virtually the entire facility now experiences a noticeably superior indoor air quality. Freshness permeates the building. Canwest was creative in their design and engineering to ensure an effective installation.

Part way through the installation, we suffered a Norovirus outbreak which can occur throughout the year here. We are not certain if the Guardian Air system is totally responsible, but we believe that it’s partial installation had an impact on how quickly the outbreak was curbed, compared to historical outbreaks.

We are currently data tracking for a prospective analysis on the infection rates in our facility to compare pre and post installation of the Guardian Air System. The analysis will be available by the end of next year.

I have no hesitation in recommending Canwest and the Guardian Air System’s Advanced Oxidation Technology.
