Over the past two years, commercial businesses have used air purifiers to help reduce the spread of the airborne COVID-19 virus. However, installing a commercial air purifier in Navarre FL has been an advantageous choice for far longer than that, and can deliver many benefits beyond mitigating the spread of viral contaminants.
Prevent “Sick Building Syndrome”
Do your employees or customers feel sick on your premises but okay when they leave? It’s not just viruses floating in our air. Bacteria and allergens are also airborne. The American Lung Association estimates we breathe 17,000 breaths or approximately 2000 gallons of air per day. We have many opportunities to inhale something that will make us sick.
Sick employees mean absent employees. Frequently sick employees lead to unhappy employees, resulting in decreased productivity and negative customer satisfaction. Eventually, the profitability of your business is impacted. Newer filtration technologies capture the particles in the air that may make employees and customers feel sick.
Better Smelling Air
Do you run a pet store, diner, salon, warehouse, or fitness center? The smells from animals, food, chemicals, sweat, and so on can deter customers from spending time in your business or returning to your business.
Clearing the air with a purifier makes the experience more enjoyable. This increases opportunities for purchasing at your business. It also creates a better employee atmosphere, which increases employee satisfaction and loyalty.
Prevent Mold and Mildew
Mold and mildew need moisture to grow. They cause similar symptoms as a cold virus, such as sneezing, runny or stuffy nose, and watery eyes. The similarity in symptoms makes it difficult to detect unless the mold or mildew becomes visible.
They grow on surfaces like ceiling tiles over sinks in a hair salon or the locker room at the spa. An air purifier prevents mold and mildew growth by removing moisture from the air and limiting the spread of spores through the air.
Increase the Efficiency of Your HVAC System
Overworked HVAC systems experience the same problems as overworked humans. You will experience increased breakdowns, and decreased ability to constantly perform at the same level, and sometimes the system may give up entirely.
When there is a build-up of pollutants in the air it becomes more difficult for your HVAC system to continue to process that air. It’s like trying to push honey through a strainer versus water. It can be done but it takes a lot more work for the honey to move through.
Introducing an air purifier will decrease the amount of work taken on by your HVAC system. Over time you will experience fewer maintenance calls. The air purifier will also capture dust and other particles that may otherwise settle on surfaces. You may need less frequent cleaning of these surfaces.
Our professionals can help you choose from a filtration system, an electronic purifier, and/or an ultra-violet purifier based on your business needs.
