IAQ, or indoor air quality, is something that you probably won’t notice until it becomes too bad. Did you know that the quality of the air in your Pooler, GA, place of business can have a negative effect on the health and productivity of your employees? If you want to have a happy and healthy office environment, improve the indoor air with these tips.
1. New Filters Improve Air Quality
The first line of defense for your HVAC system against unhealthy air is quality air filters. Have new filters installed in your HVAC system at least twice a year to ensure they stay free and clear of dirt and debris. Clean filters allow fresh air to circulate throughout the office unabated by dust, pollen, and pathogens.
2. Air Quality Improves With Maintenance
Have your office’s HVAC system inspected according to the user’s manual. This ensures that it stays in good working order, preventing gas leaks and other issues from occurring. These regular checkups on your HVAC system will save you a lot of money in the long run on costly maintenance and repairs.
3. Keep the Office Clean
Have the floors and furniture deep cleaned as often as possible. Any dirt or dust that connects in corners of the floors or in the furniture will eventually make its way into the air of the home. After that, the air makes its way into the HVAC system and into your lungs, causing health concerns in the process.
4. Open the Windows
Don’t be afraid to open the windows, allowing fresh outside air to circulate. This prevents the air in the office from becoming stale and filled with pathogens that make you sick. Try to open the windows or a door, briefly if needed, at least once a day to keep the fresh air going.
