The Importance of Cleaner Indoor Air for Post-Pandemic Work Environments

When it comes to protecting employees and maintaining more productive work environments generally, a significant concern for corporate employers is the effectiveness of their HVAC equipment in delivering clean indoor air. And while using masks and social distancing amongst employees are one of the first methods employed for reducing the spread of infection in indoor spaces, that’s only the beginning.

Regardless of outside factors, indoor air quality holds a dramatic influence over the health, well-being, and happiness of building occupants. When building and facilities managers fail to prioritize the quality of indoor air, employees and other building occupants are put at risk for the following: 

  • Headaches, dizziness, and fatigue
  • Irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat
  • Respiratory diseases, heart disease, and cancer

As such, building and facilities managers should take great care to prioritize indoor air quality and, in turn, the health and well-being of building occupants. 

Commercial HVAC Solutions to Improve Indoor Air Quality

To maintain optimal air quality, the frequency with which commercial HVAC maintenance is performed should be increased, especially during transitional periods of higher or lower temperatures.

Like our lungs, commercial HVAC systems and their components help us to filter out pollutants and other harmful substances in the air we breathe, which contributes to more productive and efficient work environments – and happier employees. 

Below are a few commercial HVAC solutions to improve the quality of indoor air in your commercial building. 

  • Installation of higher-grade filters
  • Regular commercial HVAC maintenance that includes the elements of auditing, permits, inspection, rating, and assessment
  • Inactivation of mold, bacteria, and viruses through germicidal UV light 
  • Air and surface sterilization
  • Complete duct cleaning
