Healthy air in the workplace is essential. Scientific studies show that good indoor air quality (IAQ) boosts productivity, according to the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

Heating and cooling are important—but don’t forget ventilation, air filtration, and humidity balance. Horsetooth Heating and Air takes a holistic approach to comfort when we work with Colorado businesses.

Our Fort Collins HVAC specialists install only the finest IAQ products in addition to air conditioners, furnaces, and heat pumps.

How Do I Know If My Building Has Unhealthy Air? 

Reactions may vary widely, ranging from mild to severe. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) calls these adverse effects “sick building syndrome” (SBS) caused by poor ventilation combined with indoor pollutants.

Symptoms may be more pronounced in patrons and employees suffering from allergies, asthma, or other health issues. Signs of poor indoor air include:

  • Cold or flu-like symptoms
  • Irritation to skin, eyes, nose, or throat
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Shortness of breath

Airborne Pollutants Inside the Workplace

Indoors, airborne pollutants may be two to three times more concentrated than they are outdoors. These pollutants fall under three categories, as defined by OSHA.

Biological Pollutants

Plants and animals produce these irritants. They may trigger allergic reactions or respiratory symptoms. Examples include:

  • Dander
  • Mildew and mold
  • Pollen
  • Germs (bacteria and viruses)
  • Fungi
  • Pest urine and feces (mice, rats, cockroaches)

Chemical Pollutants 

These harmful nuisances can be found in gas or vapor form. Employees and customers can be exposed if proper workplace measures such as ventilation or masking aren't implemented. Examples include:

  • Wet paint
  • Cleaning supplies
  • Adhesives
  • Pesticides

Combustion can also create deadly gases like carbon monoxide (CO), nitrogen dioxide, and formaldehyde.

Particle Pollutants

Solids and liquids that are harmful when inhaled fall under this category. Poor ventilation and inadequate cleaning protocols can make these an issue. Examples include:

  • Dry paint
  • Dirt, dust, and debris
  • Runoff from operating equipment such as printers
  • The fine powder produced by construction (wood, drywall)
