Quality air filtration in your office air conditioning equipment can increase productivity by decreasing sick days while reducing allergies and the associated mental fog. Poorly maintained HVAC equipment and filters end up having further reaching implications than just musty smelling air.
At Able Heating and Cooling we can handle all of your commercial HVAC service needs from a whole new set up from the ground up, to an upgrade the system, or an air conditioner repair. Keep your employees healthy and happy to increase the bottom line for the whole company.
Keeping Employees Comfortable is Key to Productivity
According to a study done by Lawrence Berkley National Laboratory on ventilation and air quality, students showed a slight improvement when working in a well ventilated environment. Improved air quality does not automatically equate an extreme change in brain function, however the slight improvement in scores with improved air quality is worth the effort to provide fresh filtered air in office and school buildings.
In an additional study by the same lab it was discovered that by removing common pollutants, office workers productivity on common tasks such as typing and proofreading were clearly improved. Air quality is related to productivity on even healthy days.
Companies and schools with professional quality air filters have reduced sick days due to the spread of viruses and allergies among the staff and students.
What is a HEPA Filter?
The term HEPA stands for High Efficiency Particulate Air. A HEPA Filter is an upgrade from a standard filter that screens out more pollutants. HEPA filters can be placed in the air intake section of the standard HVAC Unit, or they can be placed in a portable air filtration system to work in one area in particular. HEPA filters should not typically be used on home HVAC units because pulling the air through such a tight mesh can cause airflow problems. HEPA filters are more suited for commercial HVAC set ups. If you are interested in an upgrade for your residential filtration we can discuss your options for various filters that fit your HVAC unit.
What Does a Quality Filtration System Do?
Commercial HVAC Service with industrial filtration will cycle the air through strong filters so pollutants, allergens, and other contaminants do not end up in your lungs. These filters have to meet certain standards that are much higher than standard air conditioner filters. Hepa filters can also be fitted on stand alone air filtration units to target problem areas.
Maintenance for a quality filtration system is easy, it basically comes down to changing out the filters on time to prevent strain on the HVAC system. Be sure to have your HVAC equipment maintained on a regular basis and schedule timely changes of the high quality filters if you do not want to change them yourself. We can also show one of your employees how to properly change out the filter between maintenance visits for your convenience.
