Low indoor air quality can make your Waverly Hall, Georgia, company less comfortable for employees and customers. It can also reduce productivity and raise absence rates. Contaminants such as dirt, biological growth, pet dander, dust, and pollen can lead to a variety of health problems. People in your office could experience asthma or allergy symptoms, sinus problems, sore throats, headaches, and more. You can improve your business’s indoor air quality by maintaining your HVAC system, using an air purifier, and improving ventilation.
Maintain Your HVAC System
You should change your HVAC system’s air filter at least every three months. A dirty air filter can spread pollutants around your business instead of eliminating them. Also, get a professional to check your heater and air conditioner at least once per year. That way, you can make any necessary repairs before a breakdown stops your staff from working.
Use an Air Purifier
Most air purifiers work like an HVAC air filter, trapping pollutants and improving your indoor air quality. Many models can capture bacteria, protecting you and your employees from illnesses. They can also get rid of bad smells and excessive dust in your office.
An energy recovery ventilator or ERV removes stale, polluted air and replaces it with filtered air. This helps you get rid of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) such as formaldehyde and benzene. Found in many paints, air fresheners, glues, and cleaners, these products can cause dizziness, headaches, and fatigue. Since they evaporate near room temperature, air filters alone can’t eliminate them. ERVs also work like heat pumps to heat or cool incoming fresh air by transferring heat to or from stale air. They can save energy and extend your HVAC system’s life by reducing wear.
