Workplaces and business locations tend to build up a considerable amount of “contaminated” air. This is air that might contain dust or allergens, and it usually comes from work processes such as cooking or production lines. But regardless of whether you’re operating a restaurant, warehouse, or typical office building, simply opening a window isn’t enough to cycle out this stale air. Natural ventilation just isn’t enough to remove all of the potential pollutants that linger in stale air.

Instead, ventilation systems are necessary for bringing in fresh outdoor air and removing contaminated indoor air from a business location.

What are ventilation systems designed for?

Ventilation systems are an effective way to control exposure to airborne contaminants and can be used to remove anything from dust and allergens to vapours, gas, and fumes created by various appliances. It can exhaust air out and bring in fresh air at specific speeds that are defined by you, making it possible to continuously remove stale air and replace it with fresh and clean air from outside.

Do you need a ventilation system?

Ventilation systems typically aren’t required in small and controlled areas that don’t produce pollutants. In some cases, natural ventilation is all you need to keep the air in a small office clean. There are also particular cases where ventilation can be carried out by small systems, such as the exhaust fan above a stovetop that carries smoke and steam out of the home.

However, if your workplace, warehouse, or home does produce a significant amount of air pollutants, then it may be necessary to design a bespoke air ventilation system in order to keep fresh air flowing throughout your premises.

What are the benefits of a ventilation system?

Ventilation systems are mainly used to control pollutants and contaminants in the air. For example, if you have appliances or equipment in your workplace that produce a lot of dust or fumes, then ventilation systems can be used to remove these pollutants and replace the air with fresh and clean air. This helps to improve the overall health and wellbeing of you and your employees.

It may also be necessary to remove fumes and other dangerous contaminants so that they don’t linger in the air. Fume, dust, and vapours can cause health-related issues, but they can also cause long-term damage to furniture and other indoor items over a long period of time.

Lastly, the removal of potentially hazardous or dangerous air can also reduce potential exposure to fire or even explosion hazards. This can often be the case when gas is involved, or if there is the potential for a leak to occur.
