Proper ventilation is an essential component to maximizing the indoor air quality in your commercial space.
Proper ventilation systems bring in fresh air, reducing the concentrations of chemicals, carbon dioxide, and other contaminants found in the existing indoor air.
Oftentimes, newly constructed buildings are built "tight" in the name of energy efficiency. Many times, that increased energy efficiency comes at a cost of worse indoor air quality.
Without a natural means of old air leaking out of the building and fresh air coming in, you sometimes have to use mechanical solutions to replace the stale air with fresh outside air.
Humidity control systems help to protect the comfort of the air and indoor space.
When it is hot outside, your cooling system can dampen the indoor air when it cools. This increased moisture (if left unchecked) could cause mold growth or mildew buildup.
In the winter, the air tends to be a bit drier. This dry air can be hard on skin and lungs; as well as, wood floors and furniture.
Not only can the dry air cause health problems; but, it can also cause issues with your heating system. Drier air doesn't hold heat as well. So, if your indoor air lacks moisture, your heating system is going to try and compensate by working harder to make the space feel comfortable.
Of all the new gadgets and technologies to try and clean the air, few are as effective as germicidal UV lights.
UV light has the capabilities of killing viruses, mold, and bacteria without injecting any other harmful chemicals or particulates back into the air.
According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, UVC radiation is a known disinfectant for air, water, and nonporous surfaces. In addition, solutions located inside air duct systems is the safest way to employ UVC radiation because it doesn't require human exposure.
A high-quality high-efficiency air filter is the perfect compliment to a germicidal solution.

I manage a large 7 story building in downtown Missoula and having a good plumbing and mechanical firm working in my building is imperative. I have been using Garden City Plumbing and Heating for several years and they are the best firm I have ever worked with. I have had many opportunities to work with the plumbing and mechanical side of this firm. All of their techs are top notch and do an excellent job, are through and clean up when the job is complete. They have after hours emergency service which is a huge relief when you need service after business hours. Garden City has a preventative maintenance program that is great and they keep on top of all the mechanical systems to keep them operating efficiently and will let you know when you should start budgeting for replacement. Their office staff is very friendly and lets you know when the tech has been dispatched. Some of the office staff came to my building personally to see the equipment that is in the preventative maintenance program so when I call for service they are familiar with what the tech will be working on. I Highly recommend Garden City Plumbing and Heating.

A HEPA filter is a type of pleated mechanical air filter. HEPA stands for "high efficiency particulate air filter".
Good indoor air quality takes into account multiple factors. These factors include: temperature, humidity, ventilation, and exposure from chemicals.
Some noticeable environmental signs are unpleasant or musty odors, or the feeling of stuffiness. Also, you can tell you might have IAQ issues if team members complain of headaches or other air quality related health problems.
