Proper ventilation is not only important for indoor air quality, it’s to keep your employees and business safe

You have a lot of responsibilities to take care of with your commercial business, so it can be difficult to keep track of which tasks are top priorities and which can be put off for a while longer.

If you’ve been putting off installing, maintaining or repairing your commercial ventilation system though, you could be putting your employees and the future of your business in jeopardy.

Proper ventilation is a vital component in a commercial space, as it helps balance out the fresh outdoor air with the stale inside air and vents unwanted gases to the outdoors. The problem is that we tend to keep buildings sealed up tightly to improve efficiency, which could lead to a number of problems you could pay for later on.

Here are some reasons how proper ventilation ensures better health and safety in your commercial business space.

Proper Ventilation for Better Indoor Air Quality and Health

Commercial ventilation is essential to keeping the people on your commercial property safe from problems caused by gases or pollutants in the air. Studies have found that the air inside of a commercial building can be much worse than the outside air.

Those who suffer from asthma, allergies or respiratory immune disorders are likely to have symptoms that become irritated by contaminants that frequently circulate through the vents. A good ventilation system installed in the ductwork allows fresh air to come into the commercial building without affecting the efficiency of your heater or air conditioner. This can help to control humidity levels and prevent symptoms associated with respiratory issues or general illness.

Proper Ventilation for Safety

It is important to also have a system in place to properly ventilate gases or fumes to the outdoors from a commercial heating system or from commercial kitchen equipment. An exhaust system helps to ensure that combustion gases and water vapor are vented safely outdoors, but this can only be guaranteed with regular maintenance of the fans and flue of your commercial equipment. Poor ventilation can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning, so it’s important to have an expert inspect your heating equipment and ventilation system every year.

By taking care of and properly maintaining your commercial business’s ventilation system, you’ll have efficient, clean air heating and cooling that will provide for your employee’s comfort and safety for many years to come.
