Uncomfortable working conditions or poor indoor air quality can reduce productivity at your Sharpsburg, Georgia, business. It’s difficult for people to do their best if they’re distracted by bad smells or an environment that’s too hot or too cold. Contaminants such as dirt, dust, pet dander, pollen, and biological growth can lead to allergy or asthma symptoms, headaches, fatigue, eye irritation, sore throats, more frequent illnesses, and other issues. You can use ventilation, zoning, and regular maintenance to keep your employees comfortable and increase productivity.
Many industries produce dust and other pollutants, and cooking food in restaurants can produce excess humidity, smoke, and unpleasant smells. You can get rid of polluted air and replace it with filtered outdoor air using an energy recovery ventilator (ERV). That way, your customers and employees can enjoy fresh air and avoid contaminants or increased utility bills.
Zoning lets you choose different temperatures for different parts of your property. If your business uses an oven or machinery that produces excess heat, you can keep your workers comfortable and prevent heat exhaustion by using the air conditioning in that area or zone while keeping the air in the customer-facing part of your company at a lower setting. You can use zoning with more than one HVAC system, a ductless system with more multiple indoor units, or dampers installed in your business’s ductwork to direct conditioned air where it’s needed.
Many people struggle while working in hot weather, and a broken air conditioner could force you to close your company until you can have repairs made. Have your HVAC system inspected by a professional at least once per year, and change its air filter at least every few months to help keep your indoor air quality high.
