Indoor Air Quality
Do you have a healthy building? Or a sick building?
This is a question that many ask themselves today. COVID has changed the way we look at germs and other pollutants.
The average adult breathes 11,000 liters of air per day. As much time is spent indoors, tenants and occupants alike are asking, “What is being done in the building?”
LMS can help ensure that indoor breathing spaces are clean and healthy. We do this by providing a suite of integrated solutions to help deliver safer, healthier, more productive indoor air quality while promoting energy efficiency.
About Indoor Air Pollution and Health
Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) refers to the air quality within and around buildings and structures, especially related to the health and comfort of building occupants. Health effects from indoor air pollutants may be experienced soon after exposure or, possibly, years later. Sometimes, treatment is simply eliminating exposure to the source of the pollution, if it can be identified. While pollutants commonly found in indoor air can cause many harmful effects, there is considerable uncertainty about what concentrations or periods of exposure produce specific health problems.
Solutions for Indoor Air Problems
Indoor pollution sources (i.e., biological pollutants, pesticides, tobacco smoke) that carry and release gases or particles into the air are the primary cause of indoor air quality problems. Occupants are also sources for the spread of pathogens. Inadequate ventilation and lack of outdoor air can increase indoor pollutant levels. High temperature and humidity levels can also increase concentrations of some pollutants.
There are many solutions to promote clean air. Ventilation devices, such as outdoor-vented fans, intermittently remove air from a single space. Air handling systems use fans and ductwork to continuously remove indoor air and distribute filtered and conditioned outdoor air to strategic points throughout the building. Air purifications systems have the capability to produce naturally-pristine environments. LMS’s integrated advanced solutions can improve air quality and help you and your occupants breathe with peace of mind.
