How can air quality affect your people?
At Thermatic, we believe that our people are the most important of our businesses, and like our buildings, we need to make sure that they are well looked after and performing at their best.
CO2 directly affects cognitive performance, with testing proving that by reducing CO2 levels, people performed higher in testing, innovative thought and engagement. By controlling temperature and humidity, you can reduce the risk of viruses’ spreading within your buildings. Also, you can improve conditions for allergy suffers. This directly affects sickness rates and, therefore, non-productivity.
Sick building syndrome can be caused by your general building materials, such as carpets, paint and furniture, outgassing volatile organic compounds (VOCs). This can be at its worst when buildings have limited ventilation. Fine dust in the air has been linked to increasing the chances of developing cancer. These particulates are so small that they cannot be blocked like most particulates by our nose, mouth and throat and can get directly into your lungs, causing cardiovascular diseases.
Monitoring the built environment
We can support you with the built environment element of your health and well-being journey, ensuring your people are working within a healthy environment by monitoring air quality, water quality, lighting levels, and ambient temperature.
By combining this information with presence detection and other business information, we can create a performance profile for your buildings. From here, we can work with you to improve and adjust your existing systems to achieve an improved environment for your business.
