More than just a breath of fresh air.
When you consider that 90% of business operating costs are staff-related, applying small changes to the working environment can either help or hinder business growth and success.
We’ve already seen various health implications associated with poor indoor air quality, ranging from respiratory problems to discomfort and even time off work.
It has been estimated that businesses can achieve an 11% increase in productivity thanks to the reduction of airborne pollutants and the delivery of fresh air to workstations.
But it’s not just about productivity. At the end of the day, businesses have a duty of care to look after their employees and ensure they are working in an environment that doesn’t adversely impact their health.
Using the correct MVHR system means that moisture, humidity and temperature are always kept in balance to deliver a comfortable internal environment that reduces the likelihood of employees suffering from airborne illnesses.
With many new buildings designed to be airtight to help improve energy efficiency, the idea of installing more technology that is constantly running can be seen as counterproductive.
However, because MVHR units recover the heat or cooling that would normally be lost as part of the ventilation process, energy wastage is in fact reduced in airtight buildings and an estimated 30% can be saved on heating or cooling bills.
Couple this with an MVHR system’s thermal efficiency of 95% and you can save an additional 30% on overall running costs, deliver excellent energy efficiency, and provide a healthy environment for your building occupants.
