Despite being commonly overlooked, ambient air quality is crucial for human health, and monitoring stations across the country track levels of various pollutants to ensure compliance with national ambient air quality standards. Even the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) enforces air quality standards to protect the environment and public health, which is why you should not take chances with the quality of your air. Get the air quality system you and your establishment deserve, and protect the health of your employees, visitors, and yourself in the process.
Clean air is a necessity everywhere you go. Schools, businesses, and hospitals are just some examples of businesses that all need an indoor air quality system they can count on to remove impurities from the air. Our staff at Superior Mechanical can help you keep mold, particulate, and other pollutants out of the air, all while maintaining comfortable temperature control throughout the year.
It is not enough to have a HEPA air purifier in the office and assume you are protecting the air you breathe from air pollutants like pet dander, tobacco smoke, dust mites, mold spores, pollen, smells, smog, and other microscopic dust particles that can trigger asthma and allergy illnesses that make it hard to breathe. Emissions from vehicles, including carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides contribute to air pollution in urban areas, including the Greensboro community. The indoor air quality of your commercial business may contain harmful airborne pollutants as well which are not so easy to see. Having a great commercial HVAC system is not just about providing comfort from the hot summer days we experience in Greensboro, North Carolina, but more importantly, it helps to regulate the quality of your indoor air. Commercial businesses and school buildings alike benefit from air quality control systems.
Poor indoor air quality can endanger the health of your employees and customers, possibly even making you liable for a lawsuit. To avoid any legal issues, it’s important to ensure that your building’s air is free of gasses, asbestos, mold particles, and other pollutants. We offer a variety of service packages that will ensure your air ducts, air filters, and air purifiers are regularly maintained and inspected.
The American Lung Association advocates for clean air and raises awareness about the health risks associated with air pollution. One example of these risks is particulate matter, a dangerous pollutant, which can penetrate deep into the lungs and lead to various lung diseases. Children, seniors, and even healthy adults can suffer extreme health impacts from polluted air, from mild symptoms to life-threatening risks.
Poor air quality can cause eye and nose irritation, headaches, dizziness, and fatigue. Long-term exposure to poor air quality can lead to conditions that include asthma, respiratory diseases, heart disease, and lung cancer. Since these conditions can be severely debilitating and sometimes fatal; it is crucial to try to improve the indoor air quality of your commercial facilities.
Another set of symptoms often seen in the workplace is cumulatively known as the sick building syndrome. This describes situations where occupants of a building experience problems with their health and wellness only while spending time in the building, which then dissipates over time after they leave. These feelings of ill health or lack of comfort cause a decrease in the productivity and well-being of the employees and people present. No specific illnesses can be identified in these cases, other than an overall detrimental feeling, including headaches, dizziness, fatigue, difficulty concentrating, and the presence of flu-like symptoms.
When an HVAC system is not maintained, it can degrade indoor air quality in many ways. These include spreading allergens and dust, the presence of strange odors, discomfort with heating or cooling being blown at excessive speeds, or not adequately managing the humidity of the space. If you are experiencing any of these problems with your heating and cooling system, it may be time for an inspection.
