Now more than ever, indoor air quality is a big concern for companies that are doing their best to run a clean, healthy, and safe working environment. If you are looking for ways to improve your workplaces’ indoor air quality, then you have come to the right place.

Here is a short list of upgrades that can be made to improve the quality of indoor air for your employees.

1. Upgrade Your Ventilation System 

This one is probably the obvious first step. Particularly if you are operating out of an older workspace, you may want to consider upgrading your overall HVAC system.

Getting a routine inspection and inquiring about any changes or improvements that can be made is the first step. It may be a minor or major renovation project in order to replace some or all of your existing ventilation system, so you first want to get an expert opinion to make sure that you are neither creating extra work and expenses for yourself nor overlooking a major risk factor that could be remedied with an improved system.

2. Upgrade Your Air Quality Sensors

A good ventilation system is only one piece of the puzzle when it comes to indoor air quality. Even if your system does not have any design flaws that need to be remedied or if you’re in a newer building that would not need a replacement system, it is still possible for contamination or pollution to happen.

Air pollution sensors can constantly monitor your air quality, and inform you immediately if there is any problem with the pollution measurements in your workplace. A smart control system can also automatically amp up ventilation if an increase in pollution level has increased, dealing with the problem as it arises and preventing it from becoming a bigger issue.

These systems are approved by ASHRAE per the design guidelines outlined in Standard 62.1. Smart ventilation controls are configured to never reduce airflow below the required levels, keeping you up to code at all times.

3. Upgrade Other Aspects of the Building

When it comes to air quality, your building itself may be a source of contaminants, air leaks, or other problems. It doesn’t matter how great your new HVAC system is if there are other areas in your building that are sabotaging the system and making its job harder than it needs to be.

Inspections to roofs, walls, and the overall structure of your building will uncover any issues that might be a potential threat to your air quality. Things like leaky roofs, unsealed holes around conduits and piping through exterior walls, or other breaches should be repaired and dealt with immediately. 

Upgrading and improving the overall structure of your building will synergistically help to improve the quality of air inside.

Call an Expert

Rather than speculating outside your area of expertise, if you are unsure if your workspace is offering the highest possible air quality, it is worth reaching out to an expert who can help you to determine what (if any) improvements should or could be made to make you building safer and more efficient.
