Spring is around the corner and with it, allergy season. Just because you have four walls and a roof over your business space, it doesn’t mean that the air indoors is going to be the right quality. And there is nothing like a sneezing fit or itchy skin to ruin someone’s concentration.
Investing in a commercial indoor air quality system means investing in better comfort for clients, customers, and employees. Here’s what you should know about your IAQ system options and the benefits they can bring to your space.
Option 1. Air Filtration System
Air filtration systems seek to protect the people in your office space, restaurant, storefront, and other types of commercial spaces. This is the use of semi-permeable membranes to capture airborne contaminants, thereby preventing them from recirculating throughout the building or facility and worsening air quality. This is a great system to help combat everything from dust and pollen to allergens, drywall dust, and more.
Option 2. Air Purification System
If you’re looking for a step above an air filtration system, then you may want to consider an air purification system. These are systems that go beyond combating dust and even help with contaminants that could cause illness.
Unlike a filter, this kind of system uses electricity or UV light (in most cases) to help purify the air that is sent into the building. If you’re concerned with combatting viruses, bacteria, and even mold spores, then an air purification unit can be the best option for your needs.
Option 3. Humidity Control Systems
We say humidity control because a lack or excess of humidity is going to negatively impact indoor air quality and comfort too. If you’re dealing with too much humidity, then you’ll notice it’s hard to keep your space cool. You may also be looking at struggles with mold growth. For cases like these, a dehumidifier is a good investment.
On the other side of things, too little humidity may lead to dry air that reduces warmth and increases allergies, illness, and itchy skin. A humidifier can be a great way to address this problem.
With the help of an expert, you can get your humidity under control and back to where it needs to be: between 40-60%.
