Reasons to Be Concerned about the Air Quality of Your Commercial Property

Thursday, January 15th, 2015

The health and safety of the people on your commercial property is important to you. In fact, most facets of commercial safety are monitored by local and federal codes, such as the width of hallways, the height of sinks, and even the position of the doorknobs. Your place of business should be accessible to anyone who passes through, including those with asthma and allergies.

Asthma and allergy symptoms are triggered by poor indoor air quality, especially when mold spores, bacteria, and dust are floating through the air. It’s important to consider the well-being of your customers, clients, employees, and tenants, especially since allergies may affect up to thirty percent of the people on your property and because contaminants in the air can cause symptoms even in those without any preexisting conditions.

The filter that is already installed in your property’s central air conditioning and heating system may not be able to trap most of the contaminants floating around in the air. Local building codes usually require a certain level of ventilation, but this too may not ensure that you have adequate protection from hazardous particles recirculating through the ductwork.

It’s important to work with a commercial indoor air quality specialist to choose a filter with a high enough MERV rating (minimum efficiency reporting value). The higher the MERV, the more effective a filter will be at straining out smaller and smaller particles, and the smallest contaminants may cause the most irritation.

You should also consider the possibility that moisture will result in some ill effects. Too much moisture on your commercial property can allow for the development of mold. Condensation accumulates on the indoor air handler of your property’s HVAC system and mold may end up forming along the inside of the ducts, which creates the perfect environment for mold and bacteria. A UV air purifier will kill and sterilize microorganisms living on the indoor air handler, while a dehumidifier in the ducts can eliminate moisture throughout the entire property.

Services That Can Improve Commercial Indoor Air Quality

Monday, September 15th, 2014

The heavy insulation on commercial buildings today forms a superb heat seal that helps boost energy savings. But this seal also traps dust, dirt, and other contaminants inside buildings, where they continue to circulate and accumulate, leading to a decline in the air quality in business structures.

With low indoor air quality developing into a major problem in the U.S. today, you have probably wondered what methods you can use to improve the air inside your workplace for the comfort and health of your employees, customer, and/or clients. Justice Air Conditioning & Heating offers a number of useful services that will help you improve the quality of your building’s air, as well as assist you with receiving superior efficiency from the HVAC system, resulting in lower bills.

Some of our services for commercial indoor air quality

  • Duct cleaning: The ventilation system in a building will eventually become a major repository of debris that circulates through the building. Over the space of two years, enough dust and dirt can accrue inside the ductwork to have a significant negative impact on the building’s air. Professional duct cleaners equipped with high-pressure industrial vacuums and agitation tools can thoroughly clean out this source of contamination and raise the air quality.
  • Air purifiers: A number of different installations fall under the general heading of “air purifiers.” There are mechanical filters, such as HEPA filters, that trap airborne pollutants and keep them from entering the working spaces. Electronic air purifiers use ionization of contaminating particles to draw them down to plates. Mechanical filters are a less expensive option, but they are not as thorough and do not affect all particles. Consult with an indoor air quality specialist to find out what type of filter or purifier will benefit your business the most.
  • Dehumidifiers: Humidity is one of the principal enemies of comfort inside a building. But high humidity will not only make a workplace feel stuffier and hotter; it will also contribute to water damage and the growth of molds that can have a major impact on the healthiness of the air. Commercial dehumidifiers are an excellent way to balance humidity for comfort and for better indoor air quality.

It is often difficult to know exactly what type of pollutant you need to deal with inside a building; that is why you should call on professionals experienced with indoor air quality in Alice, TX.

Justice Air Conditioning & Heating has specialists who will pinpoint where you need help for better air in your commercial building, and then provide the solutions.

Your Options for Improving Indoor Air Quality

Friday, June 20th, 2014

When it comes to commercial indoor air quality, Corpus Christi businesses have their work cut out for them. We deal in humidity wholesale here, which means mold, spores and even just dust or dirt in the air. This is even more important in commercial spaces than in your home, because the success of your business depends on it. Your employees need to be able to do their work in comfort, and you want clients and customers to come back as well. Good indoor air quality can be tough to deal with sometimes, though a high quality air conditioning repair service can provide you with able advice and installation. Your options for improving indoor air quality in Corpus Christi, TX are varied, and can include some of the following:

  • Electronic air purifiers. Electronic air purifiers use an ionization chamber to charge the dust in the air, which then gets pulled to a collector plate. You can then pull the plate out and clean it off, keeping the dust and other contaminants completely out of your building.
  • UV germicidal lights. Germicidal lights are great for stopping viruses, mold and bacteria. The UV wavelength fuses their DNA, rendering them incapable of replicating and killing them when they try. Not only is this great at cutting down on mold growth, it also helps keep your office healthy by preventing the spread of cold viruses and similar conditions.
  • Dehumidifiers. As we said (and as we’re sure you’re aware) , we have a lot of humidity in this part of the world, which lowers overall comfort levels as well as providing a breeding ground for bacteria. A dehumidifier removes the excess moisture from the air, restoring comfort and keeping the air levels clean.

Your option for improving indoor air quality in Corpus Christi TX can also include more traditional air filters, which can do well provided you replace them as part of a regular maintenance session.
