A Happy and Healthy Holiday Season

| Category: Blog

The bright city lights, along with a gentle snowfall, cause your eyes to widen with excitement. It’s that time of year again: the streets are bustling more than ever with people in a rush to find perfect gifts for their loved ones. As the temperatures become colder, office management tends to increase heating, sometimes to uncomfortable and unsafe temperatures to compensate for the shivery weather. Heat related illnesses can occur without proper temperature regulation:

Heat exhaustion – is the body’s response to loss of water and salt from heavy sweating. Signs include headache, nausea, dizziness, weakness, irritability, thirst, and heavy sweating.
Heat cramps – are caused by the loss of body salts and fluid during sweating. Low salt levels in muscles cause painful cramps. Tired muscles—those used for performing the work—are usually the ones most affected by cramps. Cramps may occur during or after working hours.
Heat rash – is skin irritation caused by sweat that does not evaporate from the skin. Heat rash is the most common problem in hot work environments.

We Are What We Breathe

Whether you’re a building manager, office worker, or home owner, it’s important to take the necessary precautions to stay healthy. One of which is making sure the filters on the HVAC units are clean.

Through normal occupation in the office, we generate a substantial number of contaminants, allergens and chemicals that can linger and even harm us if we do not take the proper precautions for clean air replenishment.
A valuable function of an HVAC unit is to render your building’s air clean and healthy. An HVAC system that is installed correctly will do just that. The system withdraws contaminated air from within your office or building while bringing fresh air from outside and filtering it to retain the best quality air. This process ultimately guarantees a healthy environment. It’s important that your system is doing the necessary job to keep tenants healthy, which ultimately contributes to the success of your company.

With each season, preventative measures to avoid being sick include warm clothes and flu shots. However, we often overlook contributing factors to the sick season, such as the proper maintenance of your buildings HVAC unit.

Next Steps

The BP Group urges you to keep your systems well maintained to carry out its purpose of keeping you and your environment comfortable and healthy.
