Does Air-conditioning filter out car emission fumes??Watch
There is aircon in the gym. Would this filter out the car exhaust fumes, or will they still get into the gym? I don't really want to workout whilst breathing in all that pollution.
You can't smell any fumes inside the gym, but of course that doesn't mean anything.
All active systems (electronic) have filters.
As to the extent of the filtration, I am unaware without additional research.
No, my house is in an industrial estate next to motorway - which double the limits
The pollution is only really bad in the first 10 metres, very bad up to 30, and then less and less. After 150/200m it's fine.
How do you get to sleep with all the noise from the road?
My Grandad lived 10m from a motorway too, and I couldn't ever get to sleep until like midnight, and then woken up at 5 by the traffic rushing past.
1) I might've got used to it
2) I'm stone deaf
Most residential/commercial A/C systems have "make up" air intakes. If those are located above ground level (and hopefully on the far side of the bldg from the motorway), you could be ok. As a part-time A/C repair person, i'd say if you cannot smell exhaust in the gym - it's probably ok. How are you evaluating your pollution levels? Sneak the measurement equipment into the gym! Cheers & good luck!
The air intakes are on top of the building (not very high - about the height of a double decker bus?). So they are about 15 metres away and not that high of the ground I suppose.
If it was in a big tower block I woldn't care at all, as the air intakes would be either the very top, or at the back, so no pollution.
The road's pollution levels are real, and it is under an air management control, as pollution is 2.5 times higher than the busy roads in London's West end!
