Decades ago, small offices were plagued by a lack of fresh air and inadequate air exchange. Modern office environments are often one large space – with few doors. The problem here is noise.
There are many sources of noise in an open office space. You and your colleagues can do nothing about this. LivingBetter can. We can ensure that the noise never comes from a ventilation system installed to provide a healthy indoor climate at the office facility.
In a worst-case scenario, a typical office ventilation system can cause conflict between the property’s users and those responsible for running it. A regular flow of fresh air is blown into the office space. When an employee finds that an air intake is noisy and creates a draught, the solution is often in some way to block the ventilation intake. Ventilation systems are not designed to be blocked off in this way.
A “blind alley” in the metal ducts is a pocket that attracts dust and condensation. These are excellent conditions for mould and mildew to grow and spread via the duct system to the rest of the office space.
Similarly, many office ventilation systems are not equipped to cope with users’ attempts to ventilate by opening the windows. Although an open window immediately lowers the indoor temperature, it also exacerbates ventilation system inefficiency.
