There is a direct link between carbon dioxide levels in offices and sick leave requests. Recirculated conditioned air contributes to respiratory illnesses like bronchitis, asthma and pneumonia. Your profits are directly correlated with your staff’s productivity. Investing in a quality HVAC system is a smart move. It keeps your staff happy and without complaint. If your staff is comfortable and their immune systems are not battling airborne toxins and viruses, they are bound to be more productive. Most government buildings in D.C. and Virginia don’t even give you the open to windows. There is more than boredom and lack of enthusiasm that’s contributing to increased sick leave requests.
Alternative Ways to Aid your Commercial HVAC System
Leafy green plants are a great way to clean the air. Through photosynthesis, plants remove the toxins from the air and replace it with clean oxygen. Instruct your cleaning staff to use ‘green’ cleaning products. Toxic gases and odors found in typical commercial grade cleaning products contribute to memory lapse, mild depression, lung dysfunction, blurred vision, headaches and lethargy. Americans have been conditioned to love the smell of ‘clean’ homes and offices. We associate the smell of chemically produced fragrances with cleanliness and health. This couldn’t be further from the truth because those lab created scents are making you sick.

Ultra Violet Light
Clean air goes beyond clean filters and proper ventilation. Technology affords us the opportunity to provide your staff with the cleanest air possible. As the air is circulated through your ventilation system, bacteria and other airborne toxins flow with it. By placing a device that emits ultra violet light within the vents, we are able to kill harmful bacteria, viruses, allergens and particulates. The result is a safe place to work and create. When magazines like Forbes measures the best places to work, they also look at how healthy the environment is. Every company wants to be ranked as the best place to work.
