Commercial Indoor Air Quality in Livingston, MT
Here’s a startling fact from the Environmental Protection Agency: the air quality inside buildings is often 4 to 5 times worse than the air outside. This is the exact opposite of what people assume—they think of air pollution as an outdoor problem, and when shielded inside the air is healthier to breathe. This isn’t the case in most situations, however, and this can mean big trouble in commercial buildings, with sick employees and uncomfortable clients and customers.

The Problem With Commercial Indoor Air Quality
Why is low indoor air quality such an issue today? Ironically, it’s because modern energy–efficient construction is of too high quality. Buildings are designed with strong sealing against the outdoor temperatures to slow down heat loss in winter and heat gain in summer. This is excellent for conserving power, but it traps contaminants indoors and allows the air to become stale.
There’s little chance for the circulation of fresh air to remove pollutants that come from construction materials, cleaning supplies, and equipment. A commercial building can be filled with dust, smoke, chemicals, dander, dust mites, bacteria, and volatile organic compounds. The health consequences can range from migraines and respiratory problems to major illnesses.
Combat Low Indoor Air Quality in Your Business
This all sounds bad, but there are solutions. You know you can’t just throw open doors and windows to allow in fresh air (if this is even possible in your commercial building). What you can do is work with our IAQ specialists. We install several indoor air quality systems:
- Air Filters and Air Purifiers: These are the basic tools to improve air quality in a building. They’re installed into the HVAC system to trap and remove unwanted particles from circulating. Professionals will find the right strength of filters and match them with the purifiers to catch pollutants that may slip through.
- Heat and Energy Recovery Ventilators: These appliances allow for fresh air circulation into a building without causing an energy efficiency decline. HRVs and ERVs use energy from inside the building to pre–heat and pre–cool fresh air currents.
- Humidifiers: Dry air is a significant problem in our area, and it can be especially damaging to electronic equipment. Special humidifiers placed into the ventilation system balance the humidity level to the ideal range of not too dry, not too humid.
