Commercial buildings have to confront a riddle when it comes to indoor air quality: How can a building maintain fresh, healthy air indoors when it is designed to limit contact as much as possible with the outside air?
You may not have thought about it, but the heavy insulation on a building that traps heat inside during the cold weather and keeps the heat outside during hot weather also means that there's almost no fresh air circulation. This leads to trapped contaminants and air turning stale and stuffy. Poor indoor air quality can end up ruining the comfort that the HVAC system is supposed to supply to your employees, customers, clients, etc.
There is a way to answer the riddle of indoor air quality, however: call for professional indoor air quality services.

The list of ways that the air quality in your commercial building can drop is a long one. Here's a compressed version:
Most of these contaminants are hard to avoid; this isn't just a matter of keeping a clean workspace! When you suspect that the air quality is dropping because you have noticed odd smells, moisture on windows, an increase in illnesses, and people suffering from respiratory problems, call on IAQ professionals to find out what's wrong and come up with remedies.
Just as there are many ways air quality can drop inside a commercial building, there are many ways to improve air quality. One basic step is to install air filters into the ventilation system, which trap larger pollutants trying to circulate through the ducts. The right strength of filter will trap the majority of larger particles without putting pressure on the heating and air conditioning system. To target smaller particles, special electronic air purifiers or UV lights paired with the filters can deliver excellent results.
Large humidifiers and dehumidifiers are the best way to deal with humidity imbalances-and they're much better and safer than trying to use portable units. If you're looking to have fresh air brought into the building, energy and heat recovery ventilators allow air to enter without making more work for your heater and air conditioner.
