What is Ventilation?

Ventilation is essential for all indoor spaces and/or buildings. When air is stagnant, dust, bacteria, mold, and other airborne contaminants accumulate and present health and safety risks. Ventilation is used to remove these risks by distributing fresh air to offices, garages, workshops, schools, industrial facilities, etc.

Ventilation can be achieved by simply opening windows and doors or with ventilation systems that exhaust air using a localized fan that connects to the central exhaust point and ducts from other areas or rooms.

The main differences between air filtration and ventilation are airflow and air quality. Ventilation systems are designed to filter larger, less hazardous particulate. Air filtration systems are built to extract fumes, smoke, mist, and other submicron-sized air contaminants. When combined, air filtration and ventilation protect workers from exposure, reduce injury risks and sicks days, and improve productivity!
