New construction mid-rise and high-rise buildings in the Metro DC area are required to complete indoor air quality testing.
New construction mid-rise and high-rise buildings in the Metro DC area are required to complete indoor air quality testing. This is also true for buildings that are in the process of the LEED certification process. No matter what industry your commercial property or business serves, healthy indoor air quality keeps your building safe and healthy for all inhabitants. Green Energy 360 offers indoor air quality testing for new construction buildings in the Washington Metro area, including DC, Northern Virginia, Baltimore and Annapolis.
How Contaminated Is Indoor Air?
Indoor environments can be deceivingly contaminated when it comes to the particles recirculating the air. The EPA estimates that the air inside a building is often two to five times more contaminated than the air outside. How does this happen?
As outside air enters a space through open doors, windows, and other small openings in the building’s construction, it brings with it pollutants like pollen, dust, chemicals, moisture, and more. These contaminants then become trapped in the intake cycle of a heating and cooling system, meaning they will recirculate the inside air until they are properly filtered or ventilated.
Commercial exhaust fans and ventilation systems help regulate indoor air quality and reduce the concentration of air pollutants such as:
- Bacteria & viruses
- Bad odors
- Volatile organic compounds
We can provide you with an indoor air quality report for your new construction building, and consult with you on how to make improvements to your building that will increase its indoor air quality. The construction of a building, the equipment used inside, and the heating and cooling system all contribute to the overall quality of the air. Green Energy 360 specializes in making buildings:
- More efficient
- More comfortable
