The Importance of Effective Ventilation in an Office

15 November 2019

Air pollution isn’t limited to towns and cities, it is also becoming a bigger problem inside homes and offices.

Newer office buildings can be particularly susceptible to indoor air pollution because the improved build quality means less gaps in the building and pollutants can build up inside. Improved office insulation can also trap airborne pollutants inside the office. The pollutants can build-up over time and affect the health and well-being of everyone working inside.

Good air quality air ventilation in the office can be overlooked as other business issues take priority.

Why is Good Office Ventilation Important?

Indoor air quality in offices plays a huge role in keeping our workers comfortable, healthy and productive. Indoor air pollution has been linked to causing and worsening existing conditions, including:

  • Asthma
  • Strokes
  • Allergies

Good  Office Ventilation Starts with Good Design, Professional Ventilation Installers and Quality Ventilation Products.

First, it is important that your office heating, ventilation and air-conditioning system is designed and installed properly. A good design can control air movement in an energy-efficient way especially if your equipment is properly and strategically placed. Professional installers will provide a reliable ventilation system and a maintenance package to keep it in tip-top condition. Choosing the right system is essential, and your installers will be able to provide you with a range of options within your budget, with pros and cons for each.

This may affect your worker’s health, like triggering allergic rhinitis or spreading airborne viruses. A buildup of dirt in your ventilation system may also block air flow. make sure your office ventilation is correctly operated and maintained.


Poor Office Ventilation Increases the Amount of Carbon Dioxide in the Air.

Carbon dioxide buildup can significantly affect an office worker’s health and productivity since it can bring about drowsiness, headaches and make a person feel generally unwell, resulting in more sick days.
