Is Your Home or Office Building Sick?

Is your home or office suffering from Sick Building Syndrome?

What is Sick Building Syndrome?

Simply put, Sick Building Syndrome (SBS) describes a situation where a specific building makes people feel sick, but the occupants who feel sick can’t pinpoint a specific illness like a cold or flu.

Often a building with Sick Building Syndrome can be “cured” by adding fresh air. Heating and Air Conditioning recirculates most or all of the air (for efficiency). As a result, all of the air pollutants that come from carpet printers, etc. are also continually recycled. If your equipment does not bring in enough fresh air, then in most cases ventilation modifications can be made to correct the issue.

Do you live or work in a building that makes you feel sick? If you think your home or office has Sick Building Syndrome, call a reputable air conditioning repair company (TRS at 620-6590!) to schedule an onsite assessment of your equipment and determine whether safe amounts of fresh air are being drawn into the building.

Fact:  A 1984 World Health Organization report suggested up to 30% of new and remodeled buildings worldwide may be subject of complaints related to poor indoor air quality!
