Cherwell Temple - The Recirculation Air Conditioning units

In line with Government guidance Under ventilation it mentions:“if you use mechanical ventilation, ensuring that your systems are set to maximise fresh air and minimise air recirculation. Maximising the amount of fresh air your system draws in or ensuring additional fresh air will help avoid COVID-19 spreading”
