Don’t forget to take care of the indoor air quality at your office in the new year.
Have you been wondering about the indoor air quality in your office lately? It's not something we tend to give a lot of thought to, but it could be affecting more than you realize. There are many ways to improve the air you and your employees are breathing, one of the simplest being the addition of a humidifier. Consider these three reasons it's a good decision this winter:
Reason #1: Stop Viruses before They Start
Airborne viruses love warm, dry air. That’s why winter is cold and flu season. Adding a humidifier can help you balance the relative humidity in your office and keep those viruses at bay. Not only will this help keep you from getting sick, but it can cut down on sick days for your team, increasing productivity and reducing the cost of lost work days.
Reason #2: Save Money Heating the Office
Humid air feels warmer than dry air, so you don’t have to crank the heat for the office to feel comfortable. Add humidity and reduce your energy use while making for a more comfortable workspace and lowering your utility bills.
Reason #3: Relieve Allergy Symptoms
Allergies can be a huge contributor to reduced productivity and employee sick days. When you don’t feel good, you don’t do good work. Humidity can help alleviate the pesky allergens that thrive in dry air, helping to reduce sensitivity and make everyone feel better.
You can make your office a more comfortable, healthier, and energy efficient place to work with the simple addition of a humidifier. For more information on humidifiers, and other ways to improve your indoor air quality at work, contact our team of experts at H.H. Hovey Heating and Cooling.
