Proper Ventilation is Key

How Proper Ventilation Affects Your Bottom Line

If you have ever worked in a stuffy office, you know how miserable it can be.  It can affect work performance as employees may feel lethargic and uncomfortable.  It might surprise you to know that this could be a sign of something awry in the ventilation system. It is crucial to have proper ventilation at work for the best productivity and the health of those who work in the building.

Why Poor Ventilation Makes it Uncomfortable

Poorly-built ventilation or ventilation in need of repair can cause more problems that you might imagine when it comes to commercial buildings.  Productivity goes down when employees or tenants are dealing with:

  • Odors
  • High or low humidity
  • Difficulty opening and closing doors
  • Drafts
  • Distracting noises from air vents
  • Dust accumulation
  • Frequent illnesses

Ventilation can affect temperatures, pressure, humidity, and many other elements of comfort in a building causing numerous issues.

Have Healthier Employees

VOCs, mold spores, and other air contaminants are very common in airtight offices, causing frequent  illnesses among employees.  Illness means less productivity and more time away from work.  This can greatly affect any business so top-notch ventilation is a necessity.

Save Money on Maintenance

Ventilation systems greatly affect the humidity levels in a building.  It can also affect the way the temperature feels inside. The chillier employees feel in winter and the more sweltering in summer, the higher energy costs will be. Saving money is always on the list for business owners, and it is crucial to take a look at cutting these costs.  The more you use your HVAC systems, the more repairs and maintenance they will need.  Regularly scheduled maintenance effects greater cost savings to building owners in the long run.
