When it comes to efficient employees, comfortable customers, and satisfied clients, good air quality is vital for any commercial facility. But what exactly does it mean to have good quality indoor air?

 

Temperature

As far as comfort goes, the temperature of the air inside your facility has a huge impact. Being able to set the temperature at an appropriate level and keep it there is one of the most important functions of any HVAC building management system. Without that ability, productivity will decline, customers will complain, and your business will suffer. Most importantly so will those forced to deal with being too hot or too cold.

 

Humidity

The moisture content of the air in your building affects air quality in a number of different ways. High humidity intensifies temperature extremes, as indicated by the old maxim, “It’s not the heat, it’s the humidity”. Also damp air can lead to generation of odours and mold growth, which is certainly not good for the health of the occupants. Too low of humidity is also a problem that causes dry skin and an abundance of static electricity. Again, the problem of maintaining proper humidity in your Hartford facility can be handled by a modern HVAC system.

 

Pollutants & Foreign Particles

If there is an excess of pollen, dust, mold spores, and other irritants in the air, it can lead to allergic reactions, illness, and other health problems. Every forced air heating and cooling system, from home furnaces to large-scale building management systems, employs air filters that should be changed on a regular basis in order to prevent foreign particles from circulating indoors.
