The fact is that indoor air quality can be significantly affected by HVAC systems. If a commercial HVAC system is not properly maintained, it can negatively affect the health of your employees, decrease productivity and create higher utility costs.
In this blog, we’ll discuss the importance of high indoor air quality, as well as how you can achieve better indoor air through comprehensive commercial HVAC solutions tailored to your unique commercial space.
Why Indoor Air Quality Matters
The quality of the air inside your commercial building affects your employees’ health and performance. Indoor air has been found to have 50 percent more pollutants than outdoor air, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. This can lead to sick building syndrome (SBS), which is a condition that causes users to feel unwell when they’re inside their buildings. By improving indoor air quality, you’ll have happier, healthier employees.
The Health Benefits of Proper Ventilation
The air we breathe contains oxygen, nitrogen, and other gasses. It also contains dust, allergens, and other impurities that can harm our health. We may not always be aware of it, but the quality of the air in our indoor environments can impact our health. Poor ventilation can lead to a buildup of these impurities in the air we breathe.
In most cases, poor indoor air quality is the result of poor ventilation — either the air is stagnant or there is too much of it. When this happens, pollutants such as carbon dioxide can build up indoors because there isn’t enough fresh air to dilute them.
