Organizations aim to ensure a healthy and comfortable working environment for their team members, clients, and visitors. However, in the absence of an efficient air quality plan, even the organizations that prioritize health and wellness are missing an important factor to ensure the well-being of occupants. By prioritizing HEPA-grade air purification throughout their premises, organizations can reap the benefits of improved air quality that go beyond just better breathing.
Occupants are well aware of the impact of air quality on their health. There has been a push for cleaner indoor air in workplaces by public health researchers, national associations, and the White House, recognizing the role employers, contractors, and consultants can play in designing and improving workplaces for better indoor air quality (IAQ). In a survey conducted by Fellowes, over 1,000 employees of all ages were asked about the cleanliness of their air, and only 1-in-3 reported very clean air. However, 73% of the people surveyed agreed that the quality of the air they breathe directly affects their health and well-being. In this article, we will outline how Fellowes' line of air purifiers can help you improve the IAQ of your facility.
Common contaminants in the air in commercial buildings can vary, but some of the typical pollutants include:
Regular monitoring, proper ventilation, air purification, and addressing sources of pollutants are essential for maintaining good indoor air quality in commercial buildings.
When discussing IAQ and air purification, there are a few key terms that are important to understand.
PM2.5 (Particulate Matter 2.5):
ACH (Air Changes Per Hour):
In summary, PM10 and PM2.5 are measures of particulate matter in the air, with PM2.5 focusing on smaller, more harmful particles. ACH is a metric that quantifies how often the air in a space is cleaned, contributing to overall indoor air quality.
Several factors should be carefully considered when setting up an air purification system for commercial buildings to ensure effective and efficient operation. Here are key considerations:
Size of the Space and Air Purifier Capacity:
Noise Level of Air Purifiers:
Placement of Air Purifiers:
Electrical Connections - Hardwired vs. Plug-ins:
Smart Technology for Monitoring:
By carefully considering these factors, businesses can tailor their air purification systems to the specific needs of their commercial spaces, providing occupants with a healthier and more comfortable indoor environment. Regular maintenance and monitoring are also critical to ensure the ongoing effectiveness of the air purification system.
