Good indoor air quality in the office means employees are working in a clean, comfortable environment. This can be maintained through the regular upkeep of your HVAC system.
Continue reading to learn more about the impact of HVAC maintenance on employee wellness and productivity.
Prevents Sick Building Syndrome
Sick building syndrome isn’t a major health issue or disease, but studies have shown that it can cause photosensitive skin, atrophy, poor psychosocial conditions and other health issues. Employees spending hours working in an office with poor indoor air quality due to malfunctioning or inefficient HVAC systems suffer the most from SBS.
Promotes a Comfortable Working Environment
Poor ventilation produces stale air and insufficient oxygen in workplaces. Unstable temperatures from neglected HVAC systems can create spaces that are either too hot or too cold, affecting the employees’ comfort and focus. By maintaining an office HVAC system and ensuring it can meet the comfort demands of the occupants, people can work more comfortably throughout the day.
Contributes to Employee Health
Excellent indoor air quality due to a well-maintained HVAC system can contribute to overall health and well-being. According to a study, green-certified buildings with zero sick building syndrome gave employees fewer headaches and breathing problems and allowed them to sleep better at night.
Another study shows that well-maintained HVAC systems reduce carbon dioxide levels in offices and significantly boost employee mood and concentration.
In a study, the risk of flu significantly increased in isolated rooms with poor ventilation. This means that an inefficient HVAC and poor office ventilation are critical factors that spread airborne diseases in the office. Regularly cleaning and replacing HVAC filters and ducts will improve indoor air quality and reduce the spread of illness.
