Healthy indoor air and energy-efficient HVAC solutions
Considering the significant amount of time we spend inside buildings, indoor air quality (IAQ) and productivity have not always been given enough attention in the past. In many cases, the focus was on the health of buildings rather than the occupants and energy efficiency. However, it is possible to design energy efficient buildings and at the same time offer occupants healthy indoor air. Belimo's framework, the 7 essentials of healthy indoor air provides valuable information on how HVAC devices can contribute to healthy indoor air (HIA) in buildings without compromising energy efficiency.
The 7 essentials of healthy indoor air
The relationship between the design, installation, operation and maintenance of your HVAC system is vital in achieving safe and healthy indoor air. Belimo identified 7 essential factors for ensuring healthy indoor air in buildings.
IAQ is often overlooked, and indoor air is naturally assumed to be safe to breathe. With most of our time spent indoors, this can be a dangerous assumption, as air quality affects our concentration, productivity, comfort and, most importantly, our health.
Ensuring the quality of indoor air requires a multipronged approach. Besides precise system design and regular maintenance, reliable products are essential. Belimo offers a complete and innovative range of HVAC control devices to maintain healthy indoor air quality without compromising energy efficiency.
Requirements for building technology from a medical Doctor’s perspective
Dr. Walter Hugentobler is an academic and medical advisor with 30 years of expertise in the reciprocal relation of indoor air quality, buildings, and health. In his presentation, he gives a prescription for a diversified, balanced and healthy microbiome in resident and office buildings. His wish list to an HVAC company in the interest of maintaining the health of building occupants confirms Belimo's contributions to healthy indoor air.
