The air we breathe indoors is just as important as the outside air. Just as the outside air can become contaminated and dangerous, so can the air we live inside. As a result, many facilities have integrated air quality monitoring devices to ensure the safety and health of their employees, visitors, and other personnel. Here are some advantages of installing an air quality device in your building.
Less Airborne Viruses and Bacteria
With many diseases such as coronavirus, influenza, and others being spread through the air, it is critical to monitor air quality to prevent disease spread. Air quality monitoring devices can detect airborne particulates and notify the appropriate personnel to implement various HVAC filtration processes.
Decrease Chances Of Getting Sick
Sick Building Syndrome (SBS) occurs when many building occupants experience symptoms of acute discomfort that are usually relieved when they leave the premises. This is also caused by insufficient ventilation, humidity, and temperature. Better workplace productivity may result from healthier and cleaner air. According to research, employees in a clean-air environment performed more than 60 percent better on office duties, and doubling the ventilation in the office increased cognitive performance by more than 100 percent.
Ensure Your Building Is Properly Ventilated
A lack of ventilation is frequently blamed for accumulating chemicals and harmful air particles. When smoke begins to form while cooking in a kitchen, it is sometimes as simple as opening a window to allow the contaminated air to escape. However, using an air quality monitoring device, you can determine if your facility’s air quality suffers due to ventilation or HVAC issues.
Detect Harmful Chemicals
Continuous air quality monitoring in a facility can quickly detect potentially harmful, if not fatal, chemicals that may become present. When an above-acceptable level of chemicals such as carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, methane, ammonia, and others are detected quickly, you can safely evacuate the premises, locate the source of the chemicals, and work to ventilate the building until it is deemed safe. Personnel must reach safety immediately when hazardous chemicals are present in the air. With air quality monitoring devices, you can rest assured that your property is constantly monitored for these dangerous chemicals.
