Placing importance on good air filtration within a commercial building is an effective way to improve indoor air quality. Large commercial facilities host several people that each have different allergies and sensitivities to certain air particles. Indoor air pollutants are seen as an environmental risk to the commercial population and are easily preventable with a proper air filtration system.
Commercial Air Filtration Systems
The concept behind air filtration is quite simple. Air passes through a filtration mechanism, and the device allows the air to exit while trapping any pollutants in the air along the way. Cool Works’ air filters come in a variety of efficiency levels, denoted by their MERV (minimum efficiency reporting value) ratings. By using a system without a suitable MERV, the filters may prevent airflow resistance, potentially leading to decreased efficiency levels and even damage to your system.
Available Air Filtration Options
There are a few different air filtration options to consider, so it is important that you have the current system assessed by one of Cool Works’ professional indoor air quality technicians to determine which is best for you. Here are two air filtration options that may benefit your business:
Mechanical Air Filters
A mechanical air filter is one of the simplest, yet most effective air filtration options available. If your commercial building uses a forced air distribution system to circulate conditioned air throughout your business, the mechanical air filters will protect the inner components of the system from dirt and dust.
Electronic Air Cleaners
An electronic air cleaner or air purifier is another good option to consider. These devices pull air into an ionization chamber. Any pollutants within the air are given an electrostatic charge, which causes them to adhere to a collector plate or simply to the walls and surfaces in your business. This removes them from the air, boosting the indoor air quality throughout the establishment.
