Most business owners associate their HVAC systems with comfort, but there’s more to it than hot and cold air. The HVAC system also impacts the indoor air quality in your office in Ocala, Florida. And your office’s indoor air quality affects the productivity and health of your employees. Therefore, it should receive your ongoing attention.
Poor IAQ can cause a host of negative issues for your employees. When people suffer from poor indoor air quality, some of the problems include feeling tired, lethargic or flu-like symptoms. Employees don’t work well when they don’t feel good, and productivity suffers.
