Indoor Air Quality

Invest in occupant health and well-being

A breath of fresh air

The average person spends about 90 percent of their time indoors and takes approximately 20,000 breaths each day. Yet, temperature and being too hot or too cold are often all we notice. We rarely think about the air we breathe or appreciate how dramatically what’s in it can affect the way we work, learn and thrive. Fortunately, Johnson Controls team members are Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) experts and we can partner with you to create healthier, more efficient spaces that maximise occupant productivity and energy efficiency.

In-depth Facility Audits

We help you enhance the health and well-being of building occupants by assessing your building and measuring IAQ performance. Using data, and analytics, experienced IAQ experts will recommend ways to reduce infection risk, minimize airborne contaminants, and create healthier, more productive spaces.

Indoor air pollution can come from a combination of sources, including cleaning agents, trash, humidity, ozone from printers and copiers, bacteria, viruses, and pollen. All have potential to decrease IAQ, and can require individualized mitigation approaches. Johnson Controls IAQ experts can help by designing a solution tailored to meet your exact needs.

Codes and Standards

We spend up to 90% of our time indoors, which means IAQ has a huge impact on us. As new standards and regulations target IAQ and sustainability, Johnson Controls works tirelessly to understand the potential impact of regulatory changes across the globe and develop advanced, cost-effective solutions.

More Productive Spaces

Enhancing IAQ is scientifically proven to improve comfort and productivity as well as increase cognitive ability. Reduction of particulate matter and airborne pathogens leads to reduced allergies, asthma, and illness, thereby decreasing occupant absenteeism and presenteeism. We’re able to provide optimal hybrid working models for occupant-centric clean air delivery while maximising efficiency.

How to prevent IAQ from impacting learning in schools

The impact of IAQ on student learning in the US has been a topic of study for decades. Researchers have found that creating a well-ventilated classroom is critical for learning and student health.
