Fresh air at work: 4 reasons your office should have an air purifier
While millions of people are still working at home due to the COVID-19 pandemic, more and more are now heading back into the office to work side-by-side with their coworkers. Whether you have a home workspace or commute to a central office, indoor air quality is now a more important consideration than ever before. HEPA air purifiers provide a simple, easy, and cost-effective way to keep the air in your office clean and safe to breathe.
If you are an employer, employee, or a small business owner, here are just some of the benefits of adding an air purifier to your current office setup:
- Increased Productivity
Poor indoor air quality is linked to lowered employee productivity, for a variety of reasons. One study from Harvard University found that higher amounts of fine particulate matter in indoor air decreased performance in mental aptitude tests. Additionally, contaminated office air can cause allergy symptoms and airborne illnesses, like the common cold, further lowering workplace productivity.
A high-performance air purifier keeps the air clean and conditioned, increasing overall workplace productivity. The Jya Fjord and Jya Fjord Pro both feature our exclusive NanoGuard™ Filtration technology (equivalent to the latest HEPA H13 standard), capturing up to 99.99% of pollutants as small as 0.1 microns in size–in minutes.
- Protection against disease
While not completely understood, Sick Building Syndrome (or SBS) is a term used to describe a series of negative health and comfort symptoms experienced by people who spend a lot of time inside office buildings. Air purification and proper ventilation have been shown to minimize these symptoms. Other common airborne illnesses can also result from close working environments. A recent CDC study found that HEPA air purifiers reduce COVID-19 spread indoors by up to 41%, and due to these findings, the CDC recommends that air purifiers be used in all office settings.
- Supplemented ventilation
Proper ventilation does more than just create a more pleasant working environment–it also further helps protect against disease transmission. The same CDC study found that simple strategies to improve ventilation lowered COVID-19 spread by over 30%.
The Jya Fjord Series features advanced environmental sensors that actively monitor PM particulates, TVOCs, and humidity in real-time, automatically adjusting the whisper-quiet fan for proper ventilation and air purification.
Industrial-grade air purification solutions can be expensive and time-consuming to install, whereas our Jya Fjord Series air purifiers are light, portable, and easy to implement in any office environment. And for a limited time, you can save up to €69 with our Filter Bundles. There’s no better time to improve the comfort and safety of your office by adding a proper HEPA air purifier.
