How Can I Ensure the Best Indoor Air Quality for My Employees this Spring

The right HVAC commercial services provide businesses with cleaner indoor air.

Business with HVAC needs can struggle to access affordable, reliable commercial services. That’s especially true for special issues like air quality. Keeping indoor air free of pollutants is integral to maintaining a pleasant work environment and keeping your employees healthy and productive at work.

Consider the following ways Charleston-area businesses can control the quality of their indoor air:

  • Humidity: Overly dry air can have a big impact on employees with many symptoms mimicking allergies or colds. Red, sensitive eyes and scratchy throats are just the tip of the iceberg. Dry air can wick moisture away from sinus membranes and lead to breathing problems too. However, this is more of a problem in winter when the air is cold and dry.
  • Dehumidifiers: On the flip side, overly moist air can lead to water damage and the development of mold and mildew. Those are known health risks, so it’s important the air’s water content be adequately maintained. Keeping humidity levels between 30 and 50 percent is a safe bet for avoiding problems.
  • Air filters and purifiers: According to the EPA, indoor air is roughly seven times more polluted than the air outdoors. That isn’t because smog has made its way inside, but because house cleaners, industrial solvents, paint fumes, and other elements unique to the indoors threaten to harm your health.

An air filter is generally placed in ductwork so the air pumped throughout your business is cleaned before delivery. Filters of different thickness and construction are capable of capturing the tiniest elements. Air purifiers use advanced technology to nullify pollutants, rendering some of them harmless and completely obliterating others.

Special filters can also be sourced for your business if you have advanced needs. These high-powered systems protect the health of your workers and clients, and they can go a long way in helping you meet regulations.
