Learn more about the adverse health effects of poor air quality and how to improve your commercial air quality.

Adverse Effects

Poor indoor air quality can often times be worse than outdoor air pollution. Enclosed areas keep contaminants enclosed, creating a prime environment for pollutants to flourish.

Low indoor air quality can lead to a host of health issues, including:

  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Allergy & Asthma symptoms
  • Skin rashes
  • Eye irritation
  • Nausea
  • Coughing
  • Poor Concentration
  • Chronic Headaches
  • Respiratory Infections

Long-term exposure to some chemicals and mold can lead to more serious illnesses, such as cancer. Preventing symptoms and illnesses caused by low indoor air quality is crucial. Your ventilation and filtration systems should be evaluated routinely.

Contributing Factors

Many chemicals, substances and factors can lead to poor indoor air quality, including:

  • Cleaning Supplies
  • Pesticides
  • Mold
  • Mildew
  • Bacteria
  • Dust Mites
  • High Humidity
  • Construction dust
  • Gases and vapors
  • Dirty air filter

Pollutants can accumulate in your heating and air conditioning system’s ductwork. The air is then spread throughout your entire business. Too many small particles in your air can harm your system, including the air handler and compressor. This can lead to breakdowns and repairs, which are costly.


Proper ventilation and filtration is imperative for clean indoor air quality. Our team of experts can evaluate your system and advise you of possible solutions to improve your air quality, including:

  • Dehumidifiers
  • Frequently changed air filters
  • Air purification systems
