Did you know indoor air can be two to five times more polluted than outdoor air? This is bad news for employees and customers who have allergies and asthma! Fortunately, regular Houston commercial HVAC maintenance can help improve indoor air quality and may help reduce workplace allergies and asthma symptoms. Frequent allergies or asthma symptoms can impact productivity and cause increased absenteeism, which costs your business money. Scheduling routine HVAC service can do a lot to help your bottom line in this way.
Houston Commercial HVAC Can Help Improve Indoor Air Quality
HVAC maintenance for your business offers a lot of different benefits. For instance, improving energy efficiency and helping reduce the need for costly repairs. However, what many people don’t realize is that maintenance can also help keep indoor air clean and healthy for your staff and customers.
Filtration systems in your commercial HVAC system are the first defense in keeping allergens out of your workplace. Part of HVAC maintenance is ensuring your commercial building’s filtration system is working properly to trap pollutants before they enter your building. Replacing filters regularly can help reduce the number of allergens in the air.
Cleaning Houston Commercial HVAC Equipment
Cleaning HVAC equipment and components is also important for Houston building maintenance and controlling workplace allergies. Common allergens like dust, pollen, dust mites, and other triggers can build up in your HVAC system, such as in air ducts and vents. Regular cleaning can help remove these to help reduce the number of allergens in the air.
Another concern for allergy and asthma sufferers, as well as your other employees, is mold growth. Mold can cause some pretty serious sinus and respiratory symptoms. Without regular maintenance, your commercial HVAC system can experience a buildup of moisture that can encourage mold growth. During maintenance services, technicians will check in common areas for mold growth, such as:
- Cooling towers
- Condensate pans
- Cooling coils
- Air ducts
Helping Control Humidity
Mold, mildew, dust mites, and other allergens love warm humid environments. Obviously in Houston, we have plenty of humidity and heat to go around. That’s why it’s important to control temperature and humidity in the indoor environment. Your HVAC system helps keep humidity levels in healthy ranges not only for comfort but to reduce the risk of allergens. Regular maintenance helps your HVAC system work properly to reduce humidity and, therefore, allergens.
