When it comes to indoor air quality in the workplace, most tenants and/or employees will likely think about the temperature of their workspace. Is it too hot? Too cold? There is so much more to adequate indoor air quality however.
For example, the air might be too drafty or too still. Or there could be too little or too much humidity in the office. Lastly, there may be occupants who are suffering from allergies which is exacerbated by pollutants coming into the building through the HVAC system: dust, dirt, pollen, etc.
So What’s the Problem?
In a building with poor indoor air quality, you could have employees, tenants, or even customers who experience headaches, sinus problems, congestion, dizziness, nausea, fatigue and irritation of the eyes, nose or throat. These symptoms are often difficult to associate with indoor air quality unless a number of occupants are experiencing them and are being obvious about their illness.
And What’s the Solution?
There are a number of common indoor air quality services and products that can help improve the quality of life for all the tenants and employees of your commercial building. We’ve listed a few of these products below.
Dehumidifier: Excess moisture in your building can cause a number of issues, including the development of mold. Not only is mold dangerous for those who already experience allergies or asthma, it can make even the healthiest person ill.
Humidifier: Dry air is not much better. The relative humidity in your building should be between 30-50%. If it’s lower than this, then your tenants can begin to experience problems.
UV Air Sanitizers: Your building’s ductwork provides the perfect breeding ground for mold and other microorganisms. Installing a UV air sanitizer right into your air ducts eliminates the risk of these particles reaching the building’s occupants.
Heat Recovery Ventilators: These types of ventilators work independently of your HVAC system and bring your commercial property a constant supply of fresh, clean air. While not a substitution for a dehumidifier, they do help prevent issues such as condensation, mold growth, and even dust.
