HVAC systems play a critical role in maintaining indoor air quality (IAQ). If you want to save money and improve indoor air quality for your Washington, DC business, consider investing in commercial HVAC upgrades. Here, we offer four reasons to consider upgrading your commercial HVAC systems.
1. Reduced Energy Bills
When operating properly, the heating and cooling system will take advantage of all available natural ventilation and minimize the need for forced venting or artificial exhaust fans. As a result, your HVAC system will function more efficiently, and you’ll save on utility expenses.
These savings can be substantial, especially when compared with other building systems that require high-energy consumption, such as lighting, security systems, and parking lot lights.
2. Improved Air Quality
The best way to combat bad air quality in your commercial facility is by controlling pollutants with filters and proper ductwork design. Installing a high-quality filter in the intake area of each room will improve both IAQ and comfort for employees and customers. Improving the overall airflow in the building will decrease exposure to contaminants and create more fresh air.
3. Better Health
Having stale air circulating increases the risk for health problems like sick building syndrome (SBS) and building-related illness (BRI). Improved filtration systems reduce airborne allergens and bacteria, improving respiratory health for everyone who works in or visits your facility. They also help eliminate unpleasant odors from kitchens and restrooms.
4. Increased Workplace Comfort
An effective heating and cooling system will keep your employees comfortable while working on-site. Without proper HVAC, the workplace may have areas that are too hot or cold. Employees working in those spaces will find it difficult to concentrate on their tasks.
For the health and comfort of everyone in your building as well as future savings on utility bills, consider investing in HVAC upgrades now. For more information on commercial HVAC installation, contact us at Vernon The Heating & Cooling Specialist today.
