President & General Manager // Hunton Services

On August 29, 2020, the Gulf Coast was devastated by yet another powerful hurricane. Hurricane Laura made landfall as a category 4 storm with sustained winds of up to 150 mph. The city of Lake Charles was hit particularly hard. As a business operating out of Houston, TX, we understand just how terrifying the aftermath of these storms can be. Back in 2017, in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, friends from our neighboring state of Louisiana were there to help us get back up again and we wanted to do the same for them.

As quickly as possible, we headed down to Lake Charles to offer support. Hunton Rental Solutions provided over 100 temporary generators to get people and their businesses back up and running quickly. Our team also handed out bottled water and ice to anyone who was in need and drove around offering help to as many people as they could.
BIPOLAR IONIZATION // Helping Texas Schools in Preparation for Returning Students
In mid-September, our Building Automation Systems (BAS) team organized the rapid installation and integration of a bipolar ionization system for a school in South Texas. With just a four day window between the system's arrival and the school's re-opening day, our team worked flexibly with the school's schedule and pulled help from other teams within Hunton Services to ensure the job was completed in time for returning students and staff.

What is Bipolar Ionization?

Integrated into HVAC systems, this technology uses specialized tubes that take oxygen molecules from the air and convert them into charged atoms that then cluster around microparticles, surrounding and deactivating harmful substances like airborne mold, bacteria, allergens, and viruses. They also attach to expelled breath droplets and dust particles that can transport viruses, enlarging them so they are more easily caught in filters. It's an active process that provides continuous disinfection.

While this method of air purification is gaining momentum now, it's been utilized and implemented for a long time. Bipolar ionization first arrived in the US in the 1970s as a tool to control pathogens in food manufacturing. It was effective during the SARS outbreak of 2004, as well as more recent outbreaks of MERS and norovirus and various strains of influenza.

Many large venues including hospitals, airport terminals, and schools have either already employed bipolar ionization systems or are planning to now that the technology has advanced to make systems cheaper and easier to install.
INDUSTRY NEWS FROM TRANE® // Indoor Air Quality Assessments
Indoor Air Quality is more important today than ever, especially as you welcome back employees, tenants and customers into your spaces.

High quality indoor air will help you achieve important goals:

  • Restore the confidence of employees, tenants and customers that they can return to facilities with more comfortable and cleaner air;
  • Support resilience against future challenges by deploying trusted solutions; and
  • Contribute to your building’s overall sustainability with targeted investments that generate results.
LEARNING IAQ // What is Photocatalytic Oxidation?

Our Genesis panels utilize state-of-the-art technology to reduce airborne particles responsible for poor air quality. Outstanding results are achieved by using an advanced process called Photocatalytic Oxidation (PCO). While some air cleaning applications simply filter the air and trap pollutants, PCO breaks down airborne contaminants.

What makes this solution different?

  • Proven, third-party tested in the lab and the field
  • Certifications: UL, CARB, FIFRA (EPA), and OSHPD
  • Rationalized design using ASHRAE standards for application-specific products
  • Safe - no ozone or by-products broadcasted into the occupied space, no accumulation of chemical contaminants
  • Opportunities for energy reduction
  • Value-priced, low lifecycle costs
  • 15-year expected photo-catalyst lifespan
