As temperatures outside dip, office windows are closed and indoor air quality can suffer. Poor indoor air quality can not only be uncomfortable but can also cause health issues.
As it isn’t feasible or healthy to open office windows when temperatures drop to near or below freezing, it is important to have an effective air filter management system to ensure high indoor air quality during the winter months.
Pay attention to your HVAC system air filters
Air filters provide the primary defence for building occupants against indoor air pollutants. However, this is only the case if they are maintained correctly. Air filters should be changed regularly, but it is especially important during winter. Fresh air filters in your system means the air will be able to circulate through your building easier, meaning your heating system doesn’t have to work as hard.
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.
