Some facilities were built or upgraded in recent years, and thus include the latest in technology and systems for occupant safety and comfort. However, some facilities are still using outdated technology in their HVAC units and HVAC air filters. Below are some great benefits you’ll find when making an upgrade to your HVAC system.
Improved Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)
Improving the quality of your facility’s air is the main purpose of an HVAC system. Poor IAQ is associated with asthma attacks, headaches, dizziness, respiratory problems, and even carbon monoxide poisoning.
Heating and cooling accounts for about 40% of a commercial facility’s electricity costs. You can cut back on these ongoing costs with a more efficient HVAC system that won’t consume as much energy to operate.
Greater Occupant Comfort
There’s no question that proper indoor temperature and ventilation are key to maintaining a comfortable, healthy and productive work environment for the occupants of a building. This doesn’t just apply for humans and animals, either; heavy equipment also requires specific climate conditions to function properly.
Going beyond typical light bulb and recycling initiatives to upgrade your building’s HVAC system can draw environmentally conscious customers to your business, support a positive brand image, and even bring positive attention from local press.
