Like we’ve said before, you owe it to your customers and your employees to provide a comfortable and efficient work environment. Unfortunately, the temperature is only half of the equation when it comes to comfort, and more often than not, we find that commercial spaces lack the indoor air quality systems and services that they need to keep the air occupants breathe clean and clear of contaminants. Additionally, we have found that far too many commercial spaces are suffering from air that is either too humid or too dry.
So, what can be done? If you have poor indoor air quality in your commercial space, you need to contact your local commercial HVAC contractor who can match you with the indoor air quality systems and services that will best meet your commercial space’s unique needs. Below, we have listed just some of the ways we can improve your commercial indoor air quality. Keep reading to find out more!
Improve Your Commercial Indoor Air Quality
Air Filtration Systems
Air filtration systems use a mesh fiber to passively trap airborne contaminants that come into contact with it. These systems are great for removing contaminants such as dirt, dust, pollen, and allergens from the air, making breathing much easier, especially for those who are frequent allergy symptom sufferers.
Air purifiers, or air purification systems, are great for removing stubborn organic contaminants from indoor air. Your commercial space, including your ventilation system, is a breeding ground for bacteria, germs, and even mold. As you may know, bacteria and mold spores have the potential to make us sick. In fact, many common colds are attributed to poor indoor air quality. UV air purifiers utilize ultraviolet light to kill organic contaminants as they pass through your ventilation system, eliminating them before they enter your home.
Dry air is most common during the winter, however, it can also be experienced year-round. When your indoor air is too dry, your skin begins to itch, your throat becomes scratchy, and you might find yourself getting sick more frequently. Installing a commercial humidifier is one of the most effective ways to eliminate dry air, as the system works to restore a proper humidity level by adding moisture into the air.
Humidifiers are great for eliminating dry air, but what happens if your indoor air becomes too saturated with moisture? We all know what a humid day during summer feels like: it’s sticky, it’s uncomfortable, it’s muggy, and certainly, you do not want to find these conditions inside your commercial space. However if your space does become too humid, then installing a commercial dehumidifier is your best bet. Dehumidifiers are designed to remove excess moisture from your indoor air, allowing for better efficiency and comfort.
So, Call in a Professional
Of course, the only way to improve your indoor air quality is to consult with a qualified commercial HVAC professional who can assess your commercial space and match you with the indoor air quality systems that are going to best meet your needs. Remember, not all contractors are equipped to handle commercial HVAC in Clinton, MS, so it is important to do your research and find the team who can.
