Commercial Indoor Air Quality
As a business owner in Idaho, you always want to create a comfortable environment for your employees and customers. It starts with your indoor air quality (IAQ).
But what does that mean exactly? What steps can you take to improve your air quality?
Boise business operators need to have a good understanding of how heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems play a critical role in determining the air quality inside their buildings throughout the year.

What is Indoor Air Quality?
Most of us spend the vast majority of our days indoors, which makes us susceptible to indoor air pollution issues. In many cases, the air you breathe could be jeopardizing your health.
The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) ranks indoor air pollution among the top five environmental risks to your health—while noting the concentration of indoor pollutants can be up to five times greater than outdoor levels.
To understand your indoor air quality, you need to know what factors might impact it—such as the type of business you run, the products you manufacture, and the number of employees that you staff. Assessing your air quality takes into account such factors as temperature control, humidity levels, proper ventilation, and the number of airborne contaminants.
Some of this could be perception. Certain odors affect people differently, along with varying temperatures and humidity levels. Household cleaners and similar products, for example, can trigger respiratory issues.
But if your building has lingering issues with the indoor air quality, there are ways to improve it.
HVAC Systems and Air Quality
It sometimes seems the only time we pay attention to our HVAC system is when a problem occurs.
This is not a good strategy.
A good AC unit is a must-have during our hot summer days in Boise. Air conditioners not only cool down buildings but also help reduce excess moisture in the air.
During our cold winter months in the Treasure Valley, try going a few days without having a furnace. It may seem adventurous, but be sure to have an extra layer of clothes to keep you warm!
If the furnace and air conditioner do the heavy lifting in your Meridian building, the ductwork traveling from room to room is commonly described as the lungs of a building since it circulates air and promotes a healthy airflow.
Even if you do not smoke indoors and manage to keep the most obvious toxins out of your Eagle home, bacteria, dust, pollen, and other microorganisms can get in through your vents and accumulate. Whether you are already experiencing respiratory issues or want to take preventative action, we can help you cut down on irritation and possible health hazards.
Our Boise HVAC experts are highly educated in the field of indoor air quality and can provide you with the products and services you need to protect your employees and customers. We can educate you further on the possible health dangers as well as the benefits of indoor air quality services.
