How to Get the Best Filtration With the Lowest Life Cycle Cost

April 12, 2023

The costs of investing in good air quality for your building can come with a hefty price tag. As more and more companies and institutions look to pour money into improving their filters for better indoor air quality, or IAQ, additionally, there’s another challenge that appears when it comes to making the best HVAC decisions that will last long-term; money. The price of providing indoor air quality is dependent on building size, as some can be up to $10,000 per square foot for just HVAC replacement, not including maintenance. Of course, this varies but there are ways to avoid paying that much and still save money over a long period for your building.

How can making smart financial decisions help you achieve the best indoor air quality for your building while still saving money?

In this episode of “10 Minutes to a Better Building,” host Michelle Dawn Mooney interviewed Josh Howell, the Commercial Territory Manager at Dynamic Air Quality Solutions, on the ways money can be saved on indoor air quality investments, and what are some of the components and benefits that companies and institutions are looking for cost-wise to meet good indoor air quality standards.

Mooney and Howell also talked about …

  1. Why healthcare facilities dominate the market in seeking indoor air quality solutions
  2. The different factors to consider when it comes to financing an HVAC system long-term
  3. How sound and energy use is a contributing factor in the systems that institutions are deciding on and why it’s an immeasurable component

“Typically, when you save that much energy — first thing comes to mind is sound and you wouldn’t think that it would be that big of a deal, but if I’m saving your fans, right, they don’t have to push as hard — one-third of the energy. They run slower, they run quieter, so they last a lot longer, so the sustainability of the entire equipment can be affected by the filters, and I can’t put a dollar amount on that because it’s different in every application. But the DB level is a big deal for things like museums, libraries — it’s something they really care about, but there’s not a financial analysis for that,” said Howell.

Josh Howell is the Commercial Territory Manager at Dynamic Air Quality Solutions. He’s been with the company since 2017 and is a graduate of the U.S. United States Naval Academy.
