HVAC Service & Maintenance | Ventilation Systems
Is your building's air healthy or sick?
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) estimates that one third of Americans working in non-industrial buildings--such as offices and hospitals--are exposed to poor air quality.
A building's ventilation system is designed to allow the building to breath, just like the body's respiratory system controls your breathing. Ensuring good ventilation is as simple as having a maintenance contract with R.M. Thornton to keep your building in top condition.
Without regular maintenance (replacing air filters) indoor air quality problems can arise when dust, debris, mold and other harmful elements accumulate inside a building's ventilation system, making "breathing" difficult and potentially causing something known as "sick building syndrome."
Sick buildings are bad for employers and building owners alike. For employers, they cause health problems resulting absences, lost productivity and increased workers' comp and health insurance premiums. For building owners, sick buildings mean lost tenants and potential liability. U.S. courts have repeatedly ruled that building owners are obligated to provide occupants with a healthy environment.
Just dollars a day, R.M. Thornton can help you protect your building and its occupants simply by that your systems are maintained and ready to perform every day, all day.
