Urgent Notice to all Tenants

All tenants of the BIDC are cautioned not to use the AC ventilation until further notice owing to ash fall conditions.

Air intakes on heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems (eg. AC units and extractor fans) are vulnerable to volcanic ash ingestion. Ash ingestion through air intake and condenser units may cause ash accumulation in the radiator and air filters, reducing air flow and HVAC condenser system performance. Reduced airflows may cause stalling and overheating. Use of HVAC systems at this time and without necessary checks and maintenance could be dangerous and damaging. Please refrain from using HVAC systems until further notice.

We remain committed to supporting you through these challenges. For any queries, please reach out to Manager, Properties, Mr. Neville Rice at nrice@bidc.org, or mobile 836-3863.
