The law surrounding building ventilation. Building Ventilation is the supply and the removal of air in an indoor environment to improve air quality by removing pollutants and particulate matter from the air to ensure that the air is suitable and healthy for humans to breathe in, also can be referred to in circumstances as mechanical ventilation in buildings.
With any building, there are requirements and specifications that must be met in order to comply with the law, unfortunately these requirements are not always met, both and thus the quality of the indoor air is polluted with the potential to cause adverse health effects on the occupants of said building.
Commercial Air Purifiers: How Buildings Contribute To Pollution
The operations of a building such as heating, cooling and lighting are contributors to pollution, with older buildings being huge contributors to this – with fine particles being emitted in the powering process.
The construction of buildings is a huge contributor to pollution as well. Water usage, toxic dusts (silica or hardwood – carcinogenic), greenhouse gases and waste generation all play their part in this pollution, but then there is the production of the building materials as well to consider into the mix.
There is a huge importance placed on sustainable development and urban planning processes.
Indoor Air Quality: The Health Risks Associated
An occupant of any given building has the right to breathe in fresh, clean air that is free from pollutants. The air in a building should not have the occupant feeling irritated due to its stuffy nature. The adverse effects of air quality can range from mild symptoms to long term effects such as cancer.
Living in the time that we do with COVID-19, there has been more attention than ever on air filtration and the quality of the air in homes and pretty much all buildings across the entire world.
With the focus on air filtration and the quality of indoor air, a question that we get time and time again is how can I measure the quality of the air in a building? There are many ways minute by minute that you can measure the air quality, keeping track of the outdoor air, but that is inaccurate as it is not measured on a per person basis, which is a huge part of the regulations of buildings, or the indoor CO2 can be measured.
Or the easiest way is to not worry about tracking the air at all and letting our state of the art machines do the tracking and adjusting of the air for you.
