Indoor Air Quality Compliance Products in the Carolinas
Indoor Air Quality, or IAQ, is a very important component to consider when evaluating a structure, as there are several different laws in place to ensure that air quality inside of a workplace, school, or other commercial facility remains at a healthy level. Compliance with these laws will determine whether a space is verified as a non-harmful environment, or if further development is required to get the building up to code.
The sales team at Mike Moore Sales is fully aware of these indoor air quality standards, which is why we offer Ebtron product lines that not only achieve these requirements, but also lower energy usage, maintenance costs, and improve control over your HVAC system.
Factors That Affect Indoor Air Quality
Proper ventilation is perhaps the most influential factor when it comes to IAQ. Additional components include temperature control, humidity, changes to the structure of the building, and any ongoing activities that may cause a fluctuation in the indoor air quality.
Who Determines These Standards?
Facilities need to have a sufficient source of outdoor air in order to be considered properly ventilated. These ventilation requirements set forth by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) will vary depending on what type of business the location is housing, which creates different compliance standards for:
- Non-residential ventilation
- Healthcare ventilation
- Non-residential energy
- High performance buildings
In addition to ASHRAE, there are also standards and building codes given by the International Code Counsel (ICC), California Energy Code (CEC), and the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO). While the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) does not have any specific IAQ standards, this organization does regulate several types of known air contaminants that can affect a building’s indoor air quality.
Potential Complications of Poor Indoor Air Quality
There are many harmful situations that can occur as a result of poor indoor air quality. Mold growth, concentrated levels of pollutants, and exposure to dangerous chemicals are only a few hazardous conditions that can be avoided with proper IAQ management.
Individuals who are repeatedly subjected to poor indoor air quality may experience any number of the following side effects or symptoms:
- Frequent headaches
- Shortness of breath
