Your Hilton Head, South Carolina, business needs high indoor air quality (IAQ) to keep your employees comfortable and happy. Without it, you could have to deal with higher costs and costly delays on essential tasks. Here are some of the ways that better IAQ can increase productivity for your employees.
Buildings with poor indoor air quality from a dirty air filter, dirty ductwork, or other issues can lead to frequent colds or other illnesses for your employees. Contaminants such as pollen, dust, dirt, and biological growth also increase asthma or allergy symptoms. It’s tough for a worker to do his or her best with a nasty cold, sinus problems, headaches, or other health issues. To keep your employees feeling healthier and more productive, change your HVAC system’s air filter at least every few months and get maintenance from a professional at least once per year.

Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) such as formaldehyde, acetone, xylene, and benzene can cause fatigue, dizziness, and other issues. Many paints, glues, and cleaners contain VOCs, and they can accumulate without proper ventilation. Keep your HVAC unit clean to reduce VOCs and increase your business’s IAQ, so your employees don’t experience fatigue or dizziness while working.
High IAQ will reduce employee absences by making workers feel better. It also prevents issues such as poor airflow and makes your heater and air conditioner more efficient. This extends your HVAC system’s life by reducing wear and tear. That way, you won’t have to send employees home as often because of a sudden breakdown or the need to repair or replace your unit. Also, employees won’t have to take time from their work to clean up biological growth in their workspace.
