Not only will this make your system less effective and efficient, but it will negatively impact the quality of the air in your office or business. When the air isn’t clean, the occurrence of colds and flu goes up. Bacteria and viruses can circulate and recirculate throughout the whole space, causing illness and bringing productivity to a halt.

This can help nip illness in the bud and keep your employees healthier throughout the winter.
