Wednesday, August 10, 2016 | Smoak's Comfort Control
Poor indoor air quality isn't just unpleasant; it can even be harmful to you, your employees and your visitors and customers. When the air inside your building recirculates over and over again without adequate filtering, it can pick up dust, pollen, and other allergens, causing a host of annoying and even potentially harmful side effects.
Health effects of poor indoor air quality:
1. Coughing, sneezing and other signs of allergies. For those who are sensitive to dust and pollen, poor indoor air quality can aggravate their existing allergies, causing sneezing, coughing, watering eyes, and headaches.
2. Upper respiratory infections. Repeated exposure to poor indoor air quality can also cause sinusitis, bronchitis, and other upper respiratory conditions. This is especially true in people who smoke, since such people are more prone to these types of infections.
3. Fatigue and lower productivity. Another common effect of poor indoor air pollution is tiredness and fatigue, something that can dramatically lower how much work your employees are able to complete each day.
An air filtering system that connects to your heating and cooling systems is an easy, effective, and affordable way to improve the air quality inside your building.
