Keep Tenants and Employees Healthy, Without Sacrificing Indoor Comfort
Reducing indoor air pollution and germs these days with your commercial HVAC has never been more relevant. Our free report, Air in the Time of COVID: Restoring Safety to Your Place of Work, provides you with the rundown on easy ways you can mitigate risk while enhancing energy savings and indoor comfort for tenants and employees alike. While some solutions we cover in this paper do involve implementing the latest UV air sanitization technology, other suggestions simply require extra awareness and just a few proactive decisions to make sure safety standards are being followed throughout your building.
Furthermore, the fixes we outline also address the scourge of indoor air pollution, a problem existing for many office workers and commercial property owners even before today’s headlines. Whether it’s mold from a leak or irritants from a dirty air filter, indoor air pollution has been linked to everything from headaches to serious respiratory illness. According to the EPA, indoor air can be up to 5 times dirtier than the outdoors. When you consider that most people spend up to 90% of their time indoors, that’s a serious issue.
So what’s involved in combatting the problem? It starts with basic maintenance. Air filters need to be changed regularly, for example. You’d be amazed by how much pet dander, dust, smoke, pollen, and other noxious particles are captured with just an ordinary air filter. And if you use HEPA-grade air filters for your commercial HVAC equipment, you can remove up to 99.7% of pollutants flowing through the system.
UV light technology has also proved extremely effective in keeping indoor spaces not only safe, but also free from the everyday indoor air pollution that exacerbates allergies and respiratory problems. In use everywhere from hospital settings to homes across America, there are multiple options available for commercial real estate owners. Ask your Air-Tro specialist about the best ways to utilize this equipment in your building’s HVAC system.
