Fresh air does people good. And the opposite makes people feel bad. So if you want to people to feel good in your office, make sure the air is fresh.
Good air quality is of vital importance. Various scientific studies have shown that the quality of the indoor climate has a direct influence on health and performance. Within many office spaces, the CO2 content in the air becomes too high during the work day and that can lead to health problems such as headaches and fatigue.
Being able to do your work in a fresh environment is important. You know you feel better in fresh air outside, than in a stuffy meeting room. Employees are the key asset of a company, they make the difference. They earn the money. If they feel good they will perform better. On average, employees cost about € 3,000 per year for sick leave. If you create an environment in the office where employees can function well and who do not have to deal with all sorts of physical complaints, these costs can be significantly reduced.
Harvard University has been researching indoor climate for more than twelve years. It is becoming increasingly clear that the quality of the indoor air has a significant of effect on your health, the immune system and the cognitive ability. For example, we may be more likely to attribute to headaches to working too long, or stress, than to poor air quality. Harvard has carried out a number of tests on groups of subjects who were placed in rooms with varying air quality. People in a room with a CO2 content below 800 ppm (parts per million) functioned normally, but in people with the worst air quality, those with a CO2 content above 2000 ppm, the ability of making good decisions reduced with a whopping 94%.>
Fresh-r is easy to install on a wall or in a window frame. It keeps track of the air quality, which you can always read on any digital device. The CO2 controlled ventilation also ensures that the air that comes in is almost as warm as the indoor air. If you install this system, you will get plenty of fresh air. You can of course open the window, but then some employees will complain about the draught, or noise coming from outside. And you get a higher energy bill. Fresh-r functions as a breathing window, with the big advantage is that you do not experience a draught and it is better for the environment.
