legionella in heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems.
"Many workplaces under federal jurisdiction use water-cooled industrial and commercial air conditioners. The water contained in these units and in the cooling towers can contain Legionella bacteria and is an environment where these bacteria can grow under certain conditions. Legionella bacteria grows best at warm temperatures: it grows vigorously between 25°C and 45°C; temperatures above 60°C kill it. The bacteria can be transmitted to people through inhaled water droplets"--Background.
