Which Air Filtration System is Best For The Office?

Internal Air Filters

In the modern workplace, maintaining optimal air quality is essential for employee health, comfort, and productivity. As a facilities manager, navigating the complexities of an air filtration system can be challenging. That’s why, at Westbury Group, we’re committed to providing tailored solutions that prioritise both indoor and outdoor air quality factors.

Let’s explore a strategic approach to air filtration and how Westbury Group can help you achieve the best results for your office environment.

Understanding Local Conditions

Before implementing any air filtration strategy, it’s crucial to assess local environmental conditions. Factors such as outdoor air quality, pollution levels, and seasonal variations play a significant role in determining the most effective filtration approach.

At Westbury, we offer comprehensive indoor air quality monitoring services, including monitoring CO2, CO, particulate matter, VOCs, and more. By analysing real-time data, we can develop a tailored filtration strategy that addresses specific air quality challenges unique to your location.

Developing a Strategic Air Filtration Plan

A well-rounded air filtration strategy involves multiple stages of filtration to effectively remove contaminants and maintain clean indoor air. Westbury Group recommends a comprehensive approach that includes pre-filtration and secondary filtration systems.

Pre-filtration helps capture larger particles and prevents them from clogging more advanced filters, prolonging their lifespan and reducing maintenance costs.

Secondary filtration, such as HEPA filters, can be implemented as needed for particularly challenging indoor environments or high-profile settings.

Optimising Energy Efficiency

Balancing air quality with energy efficiency is essential for sustainable building operations. We understand the importance of optimising HVAC systems to minimise energy consumption while maintaining superior indoor air quality. By carefully selecting and integrating air filtration components alongside other AHU (air handling unit) components, we can achieve the perfect balance between clean air and energy efficiency.

Incorporating Air Intake Screens

Air intake screens are a valuable addition to any air filtration system, helping to reduce maintenance schedules and protect HVAC equipment from outdoor contaminants.

By installing air intake screens, facilities managers can prevent debris, insects, and other airborne particles from entering the building, ensuring cleaner indoor air and extending the lifespan of filtration equipment.

Leveraging Carbon Filtration for Specialised Needs

Carbon filtration can be employed as a final stage in air filtration systems for particularly challenging conditions, such as in museums or environments with high levels of odours or volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Westbury Group offers customisable filtration solutions that include carbon filtration options tailored to your specific requirements.

At Westbury Group, we pride ourselves on providing innovative air filtration solutions that prioritise both indoor air quality and energy efficiency. Our team of experts will work closely with you to develop a customised filtration strategy that meets your unique needs and exceeds your expectations. With Westbury Group, you can breathe easy knowing that your office environment is in good hands.
