Your business creates dust. Whether it is an office building, or a furniture warehouse, or a diner, everything you do in your building creates impurities, chemicals, and allergens in the air and it is up to your HVAC system to remove it.
Even light exposure to dust can have negative health effects including cancer, respiratory illnesses, asthma, allergies, and other health issues. Also, dust can be a fire hazard. Static electricity, sparks from equipment, and high levels of heat from equipment are all it takes to start a fire. Almost any dust can become flammable, but high-risk materials include wood, plastics, resins, coal, carbon, iron, aluminum, and food products such as flour or sugar.
Besides heating and cooling, your entire HVAC system is responsible for moving air through your building and a major component of this is the filtration system. Commercial HVAC systems filter the air through two ways, dust collectors or air filters.
