Modern buildings are not designed all that well, in terms of assuring good air quality. Over the past few decades, we have designed commercial buildings to be more and more airtight. This is to aid in insulating the building, preventing it from becoming too hot in summer or cold in winter. However, it also has the unintended side-effect of cutting our buildings off from fresh air. Most windows in commercial buildings don’t even open, and the only air circulation they get is recycled through the heater or air conditioner.
This is terrible for the health and quality of life of everyone in the building, which is why we offer comprehensive commercial indoor air quality services. Call Air Services Unlimited today to schedule an appointment.
There are two main factors that degrade indoor air quality: contaminants and humidity imbalance. There are millions upon millions of microscopic airborne contaminants floating around in your air, many of which are not good to inhale. Dust, pollen, mites, and dander are all lung irritants and allergens. Meanwhile, viruses and bacteria commonly cause cold and flu outbreaks in office environments. If you want to improve your indoor air quality, you’ll have to get rid of these contaminants.
Humidity imbalances can wreak all sorts of havoc, both on your body and the surrounding environment. Humidity that is too high can make it harder to breathe, interfere with your body’s ability to regulate temperature, and promote mold growth. The best way to address this is with a commercial dehumidifier.
Commercial air purifiers are devices that are designed to remove airborne contaminants. There are a number of types, each accomplishing the same thing in a different way. For example, an air filter uses a fiber mesh to trap airborne contaminants that come into contact with it. An ionization filter magnetizes particles that pass into it, causing them to stick to metal collection plates that can then be removed and cleaned. There are all kinds of ways to improve your indoor air quality with an air purifier. Call us for more information.
A commercial dehumidifier removes humidity from your air in much the same way as an air conditioner. It evaporates refrigerant to draw heat out of the air, taking the humidity with it. Then, it warms the air back to the correct temperature and releases it, leaving the moisture behind. If your indoor air is too humid, call us to schedule an appointment.
Ducts are a major haven for airborne contaminants. That’s why indoor air purifiers are often installed in the ducts, to remove as many contaminants from the air as possible. It’s also why it’s so important to have your ducts cleaned at least once every two years. Duct cleaning can remove a large number of contaminants from your air all at once, vastly improving your indoor air quality.
