Indoor air quality (IAQ) describes how the air inside a building affects a person’s health, comfort, and ability to work. Professional managers and top tier employers have long been focused on this because of its undeniable association with employee productivity and well-being. Covid-19 has brought the topic of HVAC systems and IAQ to the forefront in the context of reducing the spread of airborne viruses.
In Crown’s buildings, ensuring the best IAQ involves implementing strict cleaning measures and finding ways to disinfect not only the fresh air coming into buildings but also the recirculated air we breathe. It is important to note that any change to a building’s air ventilation systems or their operations can have significant consequences. Crown, in conjunction with its HVAC experts, have thoughtfully tailored solutions to each building within our portfolio.
Some examples of system or operational changes Crown has implemented include the following:
There is no “one size fits all” solution when it comes to addressing indoor air quality. As a building occupant, you can ensure that the manager of your building is a professional one. They should, at a bare minimum, follow the standards recommended by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers or ASHRAE. Crown strives to go above and beyond these standards to ensure occupants health, well-being and comfort.
