Many Ways Buildings Can Bolster Indoor Air Quality

Indoor air quality used to be a concern of the few, such as allergy sufferers. Today, it has become an important part of a healthy work environment.

Tim Zelazny and Zachary Litwin address the increasing prominence of this issue in the commercial real estate space in their article “Paths to Improved Indoor Air Quality” for Facility Executive magazine. Aside from pointing out how healthy air improves workers’ productivity, they explain why facility managers should check the Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) on their air filters, since higher-value MERV ratings lead to better filtration and fewer dust particles and other airborne contaminants.
