How air source heat pumps improve air quality

Air source heat pump-based heating and air-conditioning units can be used to regulate the temperature of your business premises. But did you also know they can have a major impact on the quality of the air in that premises? Heating or cooling air using an advanced heat pump system can actually improve it in a variety of ways. In today’s blog, we’ll look at these potential improvements in detail. You might be surprised by how significant they are.

1. Reducing humidity

Heaters can reduce the humidity of the air in a room or even an entire building. Excessive moisture-content can affect your employee’s throats and lungs, thereby having a negative impact on their health. It can also cause mould to grow on your premises. By reducing the moisture content in the atmosphere, an air source heat pump can help your employees maintain their health and ensure that your premises isn’t damaged by the effects of excessive damp.

2. Improving oxygen distribution

Heating and air conditioning units are very effective at improving air circulation. Moving air obviously distributes oxygen better, meaning that it is healthier to breathe than still air. Air that is being circulated by a heating and air conditioning unit can make you and your employees feel more alert and improve your sense of vitality.

3. Preventing the build-up of germs

Germs reproduce well in environments with high levels of humidity and still, stagnant air. Because heating and air conditioning units reduce humidity and move air around (as discussed in points one and two), they also prevent colonies of germs from forming. The air in premises that utilises an air source heat pump is less likely to carry diseases than the air in one that doesn’t.
