Indoor air quality is a major concern to businesses, building managers, and employees because it can impact the health, comfort, well being and productivity of building occupants.
Most Americans spend up to 90% of their time indoors and many spend most of those hours working in an office environment. Pollutants in an indoor environment can increase the risk of illness. EPA estimates that poor indoor air may cost the nation tens of billions of dollars each year in lost productivity and medical care.
Air Duct Installation & Cleaning
Air ducts are a very important part of keeping your business energy efficient and circulating fresh air. An air duct replacement can be one of the fastest and easiest ways to improve the quality of air in your place of business. Proper air duct installation will also enhance the overall efficiency of your HVAC system, reducing your energy usage and saving you money.
Conditioned air is constantly circulating through your air ducts, moving heated and cooled air to your living spaces. Overtime, because of their heavy usage, they can become worn out or damaged requiring replacement. Old, worn out ducts place a burden on your HVAC system and your air quality when joints and connections loosen allowing gaps in the duct system and your fresh conditioned air out.
Regular maintenance and cleaning of your air duct system will help keep your indoor air clean and extend the life of your ducts. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) recommends having your air ducts cleaned every 4-7 years.

With buildings becoming more energy efficient, indoor air pollution has become more of an issue. Especially in commercial buildings packed with people, where there is more opportunity for pollutants such as dust mites, chemicals from cleaners and furnishings, and the more dangerous odorless gases. Poor indoor air quality has been tied to symptoms like headaches, fatigue, trouble concentrating, and irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat.
