Choosing a good ventilation system means getting the best possible indoor air quality for a working environment, a top priority for many of our customers. At Ecomech, our job is to understand our customers’ needs and to offer back professional and unbiased industry advice in response.
Maintaining clean air quality is essential for the health and well-being of all employees and can also be a main factor in the efficiency and durability of any machinery. Airborne particles like dust can damage equipment over time and some machinery might be unreliable in humid environments, so for this reason companies need to consider a reliable system or a complete ventilation system installation to help them alleviate any concerns.
Ventilation systems at work
How can a ventilation system installation help?
A ventilation system today is made up of ducting, fans and filters. When put together, these components combat any problems associated with poor air quality, making them vital in environments where fumes, dust, humidity and odours are a big concern. A ventilation system installation will ensure working environments are safe and pleasant and have clean air, enabling a workforce to be more productive and reduce any downtime.
When designing both commercial and industrial spaces, especially places likes factories and workshops, the need for the circulated air to be fresh can often be overlooked. Without it though a number of problems can arise for for employers and employees, these can include: improving air quality; employee complaints; employee illness; high PPE costs; health and safety issues; loss of production time.
A good quality ventilation system will enable businesses to provide a high standard of indoor air quality using a variety of different processes. Depending on the type of environment, our experts can help to create ventilation systems that will reduce the following problems:
- Fume extraction – to filtrate toxic fumes and dust from work environments
- Dust extraction – to enhance the quality of air released from industrial and commercial processes
- Heating and cooling
- Odour extraction – a process that is particularly favoured by recycling and waste businesses
- Humidity control
- Heat recovery
Types of ventilation systems
Issues like these all highlight the importance of ventilation and why making sure that the right ventilation solutions are present in working environments should be a priority for a lot of organisations. There are two types of ventilation systems available, these are natural ventilation, the process of supplying air to and removing air from an indoor space without using mechanical systems, and mechanical ventilation, a cost-effective solution to building climate control if natural ventilation is not an option.
The pros of having a ventilation system
Both direct and indirect benefits come with ventilation system installations as they supply a constant circulation of air throughout a factory or building, these benefits include: dust and fumes removed; lower spend on PPE; constant supply of fresh air; ambient temperatures.
