1. Control contamination
City smog and pollution have us believe we’re better off breathing the air inside. However, according to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the air inside is more seriously polluted than outdoor air.
With this in mind, the need to purify our air indoors is frankly a necessity. The solution remains to install a good ventilation system that removes any impurities, pollutants, bacteria, moisture and unpleasant odours.
2. Remove condensation
Failing to manage levels of condensation appropriately will cause a build-up of moisture inside. As a result, this may cause internal damage including mould and rot, along with health issues such as respiratory problems, rhinitis, and sinusitis.
Maintaining this level over the winter months will reduce mould growth and the build-up of biological agents such as dust mites.
The ideal humidity rate to maintain a safe environment is between 50% and 65%.
Indoor dampness is estimated to affect 10%-50% of indoor environments across Europe, North America, Australia, India, and Japan. The issue boils down to high levels of condensation, which can have detrimental health and maintenance consequences.
A consistent level of ventilation will remove any condensation by expelling the warm moisture-laden air outside, keeping the interior of your property dry and fresh from bacteria and mould build-up.
3. Health benefits
A good ventilation installation will provide a healthier overall environment for your workforce, limiting health issues such as headaches, asthma, allergies, fatigue and shortness of breath.
The National Library of medicine confirms that ventilation has a significant impact on health issues, such as:
Communicable respiratory illnesses
Sick building syndrome symptoms
Purifying the air for your workforce with a good ventilation installation will also boost task performance, employee wellbeing and overall productivity.
4. Decrease temperatures
If you employ a busy workforce that operates in confined areas, there will be one outcome – heat. A hot and stuffy environment isn’t great for morale. Not only is it uncomfortable to work in, but it will also increase the potential for poor hygiene in the workplace.
An appropriate ventilation installation will help bring temperatures down before maintaining and moderating conditions. In turn, everyone will remain relaxed and work to a higher level.
5. Air regulation
Although we want to naturally distribute outside air inside the building, too much can be costly if we don’t have it under control.
A ventilation system helps bring harmony to the air inside. If there’s too much entering and not escaping, it can become cold. Your employees are then more likely to open windows and doors, therefore, sending your heating and energy bills through the roof.
An effective ventilation system regulates the air, so you avoid wasting money on extra and unnecessary costs.
