Indoor air pollution, building–related illness and “sick building syndrome” have received increased attention over the years. Research has shown that the quality of a buildings indoor air can be many times worse than that of the outdoor air especially since people spend the majority of their day indoors. The health risk due to indoor air pollutants is a significant public health concern.
HVAC systems account for one of the four factors that can affect the indoor air quality of a building. If the HVAC systems are not able to control existing air contaminants and ensure thermal comfort then indoor air quality complaints can occur.
HVAC system includes all heating, cooling and ventilation equipment serving a building. A properly designed and functioning HVAC system should provide thermal comfort, outdoor air to meet the ventilation needs of all occupants and isolates and removes odors and contaminants.
