The COVID-19 pandemic has had a tremendous effect on people worldwide. With the U.S being one of the hardest hit with the virus, we have been left with high levels of uncertainty for our health and safety in public spaces, especially indoors.
With numbers still on the rise, there is a search for additional solutions to help stop the Corona Virus spread, including replacing exhaust and HVAC systems in heavily trafficked buildings such as hospitals, government buildings, and schools. These type of buildings are typically places that the public relies on to be low risk and relatively safe to be in.
With the pandemic, that sense of security has diminished, which means that if you have been asked to give an estimate for one of these types of buildings, you are being asked to be a part of restoring a sense of safety to the thousands of people who will be walking through their doors each day concerned about their potential exposure to COVID-19.
Total Takeoffs is committed to helping mechanical contractors that have been given this enormous task of making commercial buildings more safeguarded against the spread of this dangerous virus. With our team of mechanical estimators, we specialize in estimating the cost for all types of commercial projects.View Sample Reports

We help to work up plans and detailed descriptions, so there is a clear understanding for contractors.
Commercial HVAC Estimating
While it remains extremely important to maintain social distancing, personal hygiene, the CDC recommends that people have a layered strategy to help stop the continued spread of the virus. The SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19 is spread more rapidly indoors than outdoors, where the air circulates more rapidly with even the slightest bit of wind, reducing the concentration of viral particles. Having protective ventilation in place can also reduce the concentration making it less likely for these particles to be inhaled or have contact with the eyes, nose, and mouth, and may also reduce the accumulation on surfaces.
UV Disinfection - Germicidal Light Systems for HVAC Systems
Replacing the HVAC systems in these buildings is not the only preventative measure available.
Let’s face it, there are Germs everywhere. There are disinfection solutions that utilize exclusive and innovative technology to help you keep your buildings safe. Products from industry leaders like Fresh-Aire UV and PURO, including the first known high-intensity, full spectrum UV fixtures that can be installed in a ceiling, suspended, wall-mounted, and more. These fixtures kill up to 99.9% of bacteria and viruses if appropriately utilized.
