Indoor Air Quality


In most office buildings “75% of the air people breathe indoors is recirculated air; only 25% is outside air”. Poor indoor air quality has been linked to sick building syndrome, reduced productivity and impaired learning in schools. Unlike water, we can’t “see” the air we breathe and it is not given the attention it deserves.

Air Quality is another major concern for Facility Managers as we are now more aware than ever that we are potentially inhaling exhaled air from other occupants, which is often the cause of many different airborne illnesses and not just Covid-19 (which spreads primarily through airborne droplets). Indoor air quality (IAQ) is the air quality within and around buildings and structures and can affect the health, comfort, and mental well-being of building occupants. Poor indoor air quality has been linked to sick building syndrome and reduced productivity. It can mean people becoming fatigued more quickly, even if the work they are doing is not particularly strenuous, which in turn affects their concentration and overall health and mood.
