You want your employees and anyone who visits your Duluth business to stay healthy. One way to do this is to prioritize airflow to maintain good indoor air quality and help eliminate toxic chemicals from infiltrating the air. Here are some tips and examples of commercial HVAC services that can help you improve your building’s airflow.
Keep Air Vents Open
Have people complained about uneven heating or cooling in the building? Clogged air ducts and mechanical issues cause inconsistent performance, but blocked air vents are usually the main culprit. If people get too hot or cold in their workspaces, they might shut registers or vents. Although your employees feel more comfortable, closed vents affect air circulation throughout the building. Prevent uneven heating and cooling and stagnant air by keeping all the vents and registers in your building open.
Have Your Ductwork Inspected
Many airflow problems originate in a building’s ductwork. When the ventilation system isn’t well-maintained, dust and other contaminants circulate through the system when the HVAC system runs. Poorly maintained ductwork also leads to the development of holes and cracks that allow air to escape. Commercial HVAC services like duct cleaning and duct inspections can help you maintain quality airflow throughout your building.
Is Your HVAC System the Right Size?
If you have your system regularly inspected, change or the air filter often, and invest in timely repairs but still struggle with airflow issues, you might have a system that’s not sized right for your building. A statement that’s too big or small for your building might turn on and off too often and never run long enough to remove humidity. High humidity levels cause the air to feel stagnant, sticky, and too warm. If you suspect your HVAC system isn’t the perfect fit for your building, consult with a qualified service technician.
