People spend one-third of their day at their workspace. Companies like Candor TechSpace, is making sure they spent the best of it. They are taking a lead and engaging the occupants and their employee in different activities and offering world class amenities. Enterprises strive to maximize employee productivity.
However, many of them may not be aware that employee productivity is a function of the quality of the indoor air they breathe. It’s also a fact that indoor air quality can be up to 10 times worse than outdoor air quality and yet be invisible.
Modern buildings and offices are becoming increasingly airtight, thus trapping the pollutants which enter with human activity and through office equipment. Indoor air pollution has an adverse effect on our ability to take quick decisions and limit the cognitive performance of the brain.
Sick building syndrome (SBS) describes a situation whereby people experience symptoms of ill health that seem to be linked to spending time in a building.
Such symptoms include eyes, nose and throat irritation, asthma attacks, cold-flu symptoms, high frequency of airway infection and cough, headache, drizziness etc. These syptoms are caused because of flaws in the HVAC systems, VOCs produced by outgassing of building materials, moulds, improper exhaust of ozone, cleaning chemicals, lack of adequeat fresh air intake or air filteration.
A building's HVAC air filteration system provides tangible ways to improve indoor air quality and energy efficiency which are the two main tenats of a green building. Honeywell latest electronic air cleaner (EAC) is just like face masks, highly efficient media air filters that offers too much resistence to the airflow.
This causes the fan to work harder, run longer and use up more energy to achieve the desired thermal comfort. EAC system does not restrict air flow. It has high air filteration effeiciency and very low pressure drops.
Honeywell electronic air filteration systems are now standard air filteration systems in many prestigious institutional and commercial buildings to maintain high level of air quality and energy efficiency.
