If you think pollen is a problem outside, did you know that indoor air can be up to 5 times dirtier than the air outdoors? Between Spring allergies and stopping the spread of Covid-19 at the workplace, your office may need an upgrade in ventilation. Portable air purification with HEPA filtration is considered by the CDC to be an excellent addition to any interior space where the likelihood of viral spread is high. Let’s discuss some of the reasons your office could benefit from air purifiers and how to choose one.
Improving Air Quality Reduces The Spread of Covid-19
According to the CDC,
SARS-CoV-2 viral particles spread between people more readily indoors than outdoors. When indoors, ventilation mitigation strategies can help reduce viral particle concentration.
They follow up with a recommendation to enhance existing ducted ventilation if possible and use portable units to supplement air exchange. However, not all air purifiers are the same. In order to be effective at reducing viral particles in the air at work, you must choose a high-quality unit. That means a true HEPA filtration system designed for commercial operation 24/7/365.
Air Purification Can Increase Productivity
Cleaner air means more clarity at work for your employees. Unfiltered indoor air contains particles like dust, virus/bacteria, pollen, and animal dander. Exposure to these irritants can make your employees more susceptible to illnesses, dizziness, and headache. Using air purification keeps people more healthy, and less distracted by things like allergies (sneezing, runny nose, etc.).
Furthermore, bad air quality can actually negatively impact mood and cognitive abilities. This leads to fatigue and depression, in addition to mistakes due to lack of focus.
Choosing An Air Purifier Model
For maximum effectiveness, choose an air purifier that is rated for your space by square footage, is HEPA rated, and requires little maintenance. We like the AeraMax Pro Air because of the 4 stage HEPA design, which eliminates 99.97% of airborne particles. Its sleek design makes it aesthetically pleasing and can be wall-mounted to save valuable floor space. AeraMax comes in three sizes, so it’s easy to find one (or a combination) to fit your office size.
- 250 sq ft – AeraMax Pro AM 2
- 550 sq ft – AeraMax Pro AM 3
- 1,100 sq ft – AeraMax Pro AM 4
Plus, all models feature durable materials, which allows them to be operated year round. Installing AeraMax units and focusing on hygiene measures like hand washing, distancing, and masking makes your office as safe as possible.
