How to Make the Most of the Re-emerging Focus on Indoor Air Quality


The COVID-19 pandemic has brought a hot topic in building maintenance to the forefront of the conversation – indoor environment quality.

On this episode of 10 Minutes to a Better Building, Boland EVP Jerry Scanlan noted that the term has implications that extend well beyond just air quality.

“There are four main elements in indoor environment quality—lighting, with natural being better than artificial, acoustics, air quality, and the thermal comfort of occupants,” Scanlan said.

Improving the indoor environment can often be at odds with reducing energy consumption.
That balance is very illustrative in how buildings are dealing with COVID-19.

“Because of concern around safety, air delivery systems, bringing in outside air, and cleaning the air are important, but they may also increase energy usage,” Scanlan stated.

For building managers or owners to ensure safety and address consumption concerns, Boland helps businesses with an assessment.

“We look at what’s working and opportunities to improve, providing a short and long-term plan,” Scanlan commented.

Boland offers a holistic approach to that assessment process, working to both mitigate and manage concerns to help building managers provide the best environment possible for those occupying the space, particularly as the world meets the challenges of returning to shared spaces post-pandemic in 2021 and beyond.
