Good indoor air quality is an important component of a healthy indoor environment. According to the EPA, the average American spends 90% of their time indoors. Consequently, monitoring air quality has become more important in recent decades due to energy-efficient building construction and the amount of time that people spend indoors.
Newer buildings are sealed up tight and with the use of synthetic building materials, furnishings, and consumable products, contaminants can get trapped inside without adequate mechanical ventilation.
Indoor air pollutants can come from a variety of sources both inside and outside of the building; some examples include mold, cleaning chemicals, pesticides, dirt, pollen, furniture and carpets. And there are many more.
Managing good air quality includes the introduction and distribution of adequate ventilation air, control of airborne contaminants, and the maintenance of acceptable temperature and relative humidity.
Your building occupants depend on you for a safe, healthy, and comfortable environment. And you can rely on LC Anderson for the latest control systems, technologies and processes to manage your indoor air quality.
