"Concerned to" or "Concerned with"


Recommended Posts

Hi there, what is right "Concerned to" or "Concerned with". Whichever is right , how can we use it in a sentence?

"I have maintained all area concerned to the Air Handling Unit-1" . Is this right sentence?

Hello Satratey and Myr,

I agree with Myr about the definitions.

There is also concerned about which means to be worried about something. Or concerned by  with the same meaning.

As for the sentence "I have maintained all area concerned to the Air Handling Unit-1", I may be wrong of course, but I'm wondering if the adjective concerned shouldn't be placed before the word area. 

But I may misunderstood the meaning of this sentence...

Thank you, Myr and Phil, for your answers. Between the two of you, you have covered the different meanings and uses of 'concerned'.

I wonder, however, if what Satratey wants to say would not be better expressed by using 'related to' or 'relating to':

I have maintained all areas related / relating to Air Handling Unit-1.
