Commercial Heating & Maintaining Good Indoor Air Quality

March 20th, 2023

Whatever type of heating system you use for your commercial facility (rooftop units, radiant heating systems, boilers, gas furnaces, etc.), you must also pay attention to your facility’s indoor air quality (IAQ). Unfortunately, indoor air quality is often low for commercial properties, especially during times when the heating system needs to run. To ensure the best efficiency for a commercial heating system, the facility needs to stay sealed from the outside, and this contributes to poor ventilation and lack of fresh air. 

Poor indoor air quality creates multiple problems: health issues for occupants, lowered productivity for employees, damage to equipment (particularly electronics) and building materials, and even a drop in the value of the property. 

What can you do to ensure the best IAQ for your commercial property while heating it? We’ll look at several actions you can take.

The Benefits of Commercial Humidification Control

January 9th, 2023

People have a general sense that high humidity is “bad,” but often don’t consider the consequences of low humidity, which can be just as extreme. The ideal humidity level is balanced between the two.
