Indoor Air Quality

It’s more than just particulates

Indoor air quality can impact employee health and productivity, customer comfort, compliance with regulations, liability, and reputation. By maintaining good indoor air quality, businesses can create a healthier and more comfortable environment for everyone who enters their building.

What makes good indoor air quality? The right levels of:

  1. Ventilation
  2. Particulates & debris, including chemicals, VOCs, and biological
  3. Temperature
  4. Humidity
  5. Outdoor air quality

Benefits of Indoor Air Quality Management:

  • Identify any concerns or issues that have come to light due to a complaint.
  • Prioritize the health and safety of those who occupy your space.
  • Obtain or renew LEED, WELL, or BOMA BEST certification.


Using our specialized equipment, we can develop an air quality testing package to assess your indoor air. Depending on your needs and the size of your facility, it can include:

  • 24-hour single spot tests
  • 1-hour spot tests

A single spot 24-hour test monitors changes in air quality over time. It can help identify sources of indoor air contaminants like mold, dust, and VOCs. It also helps evaluate the influence of outdoor air entering the building, your ducting and filtration, and other workplace influences.

1-hour spot tests can identify issues in a single room and help identify sources of contaminants.

From the data received, we develop a report and provide recommendations for how you may improve your indoor air quality.



Our experienced HVAC team can work with you to develop a plan to improve your indoor air. We review the testing data with operational information and develop recommendations. Some common recommendations are:

  • Regular HVAC preventative maintenance, including filter changes
  • Increasing the quality of filters
  • Adjusting system start up times
  • Duct cleaning
  • UV or plasma disinfectant systems

Once the improvements are made, monitoring air quality helps highlight new factors in your environment.

“Poor indoor air quality can reduce the performance of office work by 6-9%”.

Monitoring can be through annual air quality testing or through an indoor air quality monitoring system like uHoo Aura, that monitors the indoor air environment on 13 parameters.

“There is an approximately linear relationship between the percentage dissatisfied with indoor air quality (from 20- 70%) and the measured decrement in performance.”
