Indoor Air Quality
Commercial Indoor Air Quality Services in Chicago, IL
You probably don’t think all that much about your indoor air quality, but you should. Even though the air in your commercial building looks clear, it very likely isn’t. Millions upon millions of microscopic airborne contaminants can be found floating around in the average commercial building’s air, including dust, dander, pollen, viruses, bacteria, and mold spores. Prolonged exposure to these contaminants can cause a wide range of health problems, from the flu to asthma. Humidity imbalances are also an issue, as air that is too dry or too moist can exacerbate preexisting health issues and create new ones. If you want to breathe more easily and be healthier, you should take advantage of our indoor air quality services. Brilliant Electric Heating & Cooling provides a full range of indoor air quality services throughout Chicago, IL. Call today to schedule an appointment with one of our experts.
Why You Need Commercial Indoor Air Quality Services
As mentioned above, indoor air quality issues can have a substantial effect on your health and the health of your employees and customers. This is a problem in most buildings, but it’s especially problematic in commercial buildings. This is because the majority of commercial buildings are designed to be as airtight as possible in order to aid in climate control.
This has the unintended side effect of trapping airborne contaminants in the building, where they are recycled through the climate control system. Using climate control systems often, as during summer and winter months, will also dry out the air in the building. This can weaken your body’s defenses against disease, making it easier for you to get infected. These are all good reasons to schedule commercial indoor air quality services.
Types of Indoor Air Quality Services We Offer
There are a wide variety of commercial indoor air quality services that we offer. For example:
- Air Filtration: Air filtration systems are closely woven fiber meshes that are installed in the ducts of your building. As air flows through the air filter, it deposits any contaminants it’s carrying in the fibers. All you need to do is make sure that your air filter gets changed every few months.
- Ionization Purifiers: Ionization purifiers operate by generating clouds of magnetized particles. As contaminants come into contact with these particles, they gain their own magnetic charge. The charged particles are then attracted to metal plates in the purifier. Those plates can then be removed and cleaned.
- Dehumidifiers: Chronically high humidity raises the evaporation point of liquids like sweat, making it more difficult for your body to cool itself off. It also promotes mold growth, which can harm your health in a number of ways. Dehumidifiers are designed to remove excess humidity from your building’s air.
- Humidifiers: Chronically dry air is just as bad as air that is chronically humid. Dry air causes your skin and the membranes in your nose to dry out and crack. This makes it much easier for your body to be infected by germs. Humidifiers help maintain your humidity levels by releasing moisture into the air.
