If indoor air quality (IAQ) wasn’t on your mind before the pandemic, it probably is now. Your employees want reassurance that you prioritize their health and wellness. Investing in IAQ solutions goes a long way toward ensuring employee health and increasing workplace productivity.
There are various avenues available to improve your office’s IAQ. Consider implementing the following solutions to cultivate a constructive and effective workplace.
UV lights remove volatile airborne compounds from your workspace. Implementing UV light as part of your HVAC solutions is a quick and effective way to improve your IAQ. UV lights can be installed in your office’s ductwork, disinfecting harmful pathogens as they cycle through the return ducts. Heating and cooling providers can enhance the reflective surfaces in your ductwork to ensure maximum effectiveness.
Air purification systems remove airborne contaminants and filter clean air back into your office building. The process works by having an internal fan pull air into the system, where it passes through filters. The filtration process occurs several times per hour, which helps improve your IAQ. Air purifiers can be attached directly to your HVAC system, ensuring your entire office building has a constant supply of clean air.
75F is a building automation system focused on providing indoor air quality solutions that are easy to implement, manage, and adjust. These HVAC systems use cutting edge cloud-data technology to measure your current air quality and run algorithms to optimize your current environment. The unit makes adjustments in real time, increasing your fresh-air equivalent levels by 20–30%.
Having good IAQ matters for businesses, office building managers, and employees because it directly impacts health, comfort, and productivity. Your office building’s IAQ needs fluctuate depending on a few factors.
Many things affect IAQ. Biological factors such as pollutants, allergens, or airborne pathogens, combined with elemental factors like moisture, humidity, and odors, can impact your office building’s comfort level.
Properly controlling the temperature and humidity of your office buildings also plays a significant role in improving your air quality. It’s important to control moisture and humidity levels in your office, as they can cause molds and other biological contaminants to thrive. High humidity levels contribute to the growth and spread of unhealthy biological pollutants, while low humidity levels can irritate your employees’ mucus membranes, causing dry eyes and general discomfort.
Maintaining proper indoor air quality requires attention to your office building’s heating, ventilation, and HVAC systems because these systems have a big impact on how pollutants get distributed and removed.
Controlling your IAQ solution to create a productive work environment heavily relies on three main strategies. First, you should manage the source of airborne pollutants by either removing them from the office building or isolating them through physical barriers.
Once isolated, you should dilute these pollutants by cycling clean air into your workspace while removing the contaminated air through your building’s ventilation. Lastly, your IAQ solution should implement air filters to continually alleviate the clean air of pollutants.
