As the weather gets cooler it’s important to consider how a fall in temperature can impact your filter systems. Also, when the temperature drops, it’s often not practical to open office windows and as a result indoor air quality can suffer. Therefore, it’s important to invest in an effective air filter management system to ensure high quality indoor air during the winter months.
It’s important to keep filters working at optimum capacity to ensure that indoor environments are kept clean and free from dust particles. CFP has a range of filters tested to ISO 16890 standards, protecting against airborne particles from ePM10 to ePM1. These solutions will deliver optimum levels of filtration achieving the highest possible IAQ for your business. It’s also vital that AHU ductwork is regularly maintained and kept clean. By ensuring that your business is part of a sustained programme of filter maintenance across all sites, you can be sure that ductwork can prevent the build-up of mould and bacteria.
A dramatic change in temperature can have a considerable effect on the performance of your air filters. So how can you make sure your filters continue to perform at maximum capacity?
Change filters regularly
Air filters are able to offer higher levels of IAQ when working at maximum capacity. At optimum performance, air passes quickly through the filter. The older filters become, the slower the air passes through, and the less particles the filters can effectively extract from the air. When filters are changed regularly, this will create cleaner, high quality air that is free from dust and polluted particles.
As long standing champions of indoor air quality, we work to help businesses provide clean, high quality indoor air. Here are some simple steps to ensure the air quality in your building is the best it can be this winter:
- Make sure you have the most appropriate filters for your equipment. This will ensure cleaner air quality, reduced energy costs and an improved work environment.
- Set up reminders. Keep track of your sites, the last time you changed the filter and when it will need to be changed next.
- Conduct a site survey. A site survey can help to identify any defects and ensure your filters have been changed correctly as well as helping to improve your filter efficiency.
