Ventilation System Evaluations
EE&G and our clients agree about the benefits of evaluating your ventilation system evaluations. Building owners can reduce costs, improve indoor air quality, and eliminate liability. Inadequate ventilation has most often been the blame by employees for headaches, eye irritation, dizziness, and the inability to concentrate. Air-conditioning, heating, and ventilating conditions that cause worker stress include the migration of odors or chemical hazards between building areas, the buildup of microorganisms in the HVAC system components, and poor odor control due to insufficient outdoor air systems.
EE&G steps to counteract these problems are as follows:
- Identifying sources of air contamination
- Evaluating system maintenance
- Measuring relative humidity, air temperature, air velocity, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, mold, particulates, and volatile organic compounds
- Physical inspection of ductwork
