Maintenance, Efficiency, Productivity
Maintaining your indoor air quality components such as the HVAC system, filtration, ventilation, and more which act as the first line of defense in keeping contaminants out of your lungs, body, and brain is a critical component for supporting intellectual capital.
IAQ maintenance service is a critical component for keeping the wheels of progress turning, which makes it a necessary cost. Reducing the amount of time and effort for maintenance is cost-effective as it helps create an environment that is more conducive to occupant comfort, clarity of mind, and the resulting productivity.
Efficient performance of the HVAC System results in improved human productivity because the HVAC system can heat, cool, dehumidifier, ventilate and filter the air while reducing viral and mold risk continuously, autonomously, and in the blink of an eye, even though there is a heavy occupancy load in the occupied space.
Productivity is intimately linked with human performance, and intellectual capabilities, which are easier to access when we are inhaling clean air.
What Happens If We Don’t Maintain IAQ
The Short Answer Is that Indoor Air Quality becomes worse and that affects the feel, odor, comfort, health, and productivity of the workforce.
The typical ripple effect of inadequate HVAC maintenance is inefficiency and higher energy bills, reduced airflow, a reservoir for mold and bacteria, a larger amount of chemicals being used for more aggressive cleaning, increased comfort complaints, musty odor, allergies, sick building syndrome, and building-related illness.
HVAC AC Coil
Numerous components are used to have a positive effect on indoor air quality. The biggest is the HVAC system, and perhaps the most critical is the Air Conditioning (AC) coil.
Dirty AC coils restrict the transfer of heat and movement of air through the coil. That means it must run longer and work harder to do its job, using more energy and causing parts to wear and break down. Dirty coils also support bacterial and mold growth and get corroded which leads to refrigerant leaks.
Prevent the need for AC coil maintenance
If you’ve got air conditioning equipment that you rely on, chances are you probably understand the importance of regular maintenance. But the trouble is, effective coil cleaning is not performed because it’s difficult, time-consuming, and personnel are improperly trained.
Ultraviolet light shining on the coil is dramatically impactful in reducing coil maintenance because exposure to ultraviolet light breaks DNA bonds, thereby preventing bacterial and mold growth. Preventing microbial growth is the foundation of keeping a coil clean and shining UV light on the coil, is a low-maintenance tactic that is effective 24/7, and without human assistance as it prevents microbial growth from producing a biofilm on the irradiated surfaces.
Bacteria and mold excrete a sticky biofilm which is the flypaper that starts the buildup of grime on the coil. Grime on the coil facilitates mold growth and reduces airflow through the coil. The process of automating coil cleaning prevents the slow-moving avalanche of contaminants from entering the air we breathe in the conditioned spaces. Contaminants emitted from a dirty coil when inhaled can excite the immune system, causing the release of histamines, irritated eyes, congestion, or runny nose and down-regulating cognitive performance.
HVAC And Less Maintenance
Layering IAQ Health Eco Suite services and devices reduces the buildup of microbial growth and debris within HVAC components resulting in less cleaning, maintenance, wear and tear and overall performance loss. The benefit is equipment, dependability, and reduced risk of disruptive indoor air quality due to communicable diseases, comfort and odor issues.

Better Quality Of Life
Combining science and experience we move forward to increase productivity by removing hidden environmental stressors.
With over 30 years of experience in creating healthy buildings, our ergonomic consultants are here to assist you in combining sensor technology with air purification devices. This layering of IAQ technologies and services are proven to level up indoor air quality.
To re-occupy our buildings, we need to hurdle some invisible challenges such as communicable diseases, hidden mold, ultrasmall respirable particles, and odorless chemicals, which combine to create environments that are counterproductive.
Focus, flow, cognitive performance, and emotional flexibility are skills necessary for today’s corporate athletes, and they are all enhanced by clean, fresh, oxygenated, indoor air quality.
Act now to improve your IAQ Health, productivity, and energy efficiency by installing sensors and monitoring your IAQ hazards then implementing IAQ Health Eco Suite strategies that prevent, neutralize, and remove invisible, odorless, airborne pollutants from your occupied spaces, making them conducive to health, problem-solving, creativity, and safe social interaction.
The reduction in absenteeism and healthcare insurance costs is an enriching benefit. Also, the achievement of these goals aligns your building with the International Well-Built Inst. (IWBI) certifications that are held by 20% of Fortune 500 businesses.
