Clean air to help your people and your equipment breathe more easily
Ventilation is often confused with air conditioning. Ventilation is the actual cycle of stale air being replaced by fresh air from outside the building, as opposed to air conditioning or heating which simply cools and/or heats the air within a building. It is perhaps alarming to realise that a lot of offices do not comply with basic ventilation requirements, which puts these environments in the category of a toxic environment, in some cases worse than a badly polluted city centre
Your ventilation system is an important resource, ensuring your people and equipment can access fresh, filtered air. Without regular, expert maintenance though, your ventilation can stop working effectively – and that can cost your business time and money.
Why Maintain Ventilation Systems?
Keep Your People Healthy
Effective ventilation can reduce instances of headaches, dizziness, and asthma – often known as ‘Sick Building Syndrome’. This will increase staff engagement and reduce sickness absence.
Optimum Environment, Greater Productivity
Busy brains need oxygen. Without it, workers become sluggish and more likely to make errors. Regular maintenance of the ventilation system can keep your people focused and sharp.
Lower Energy Costs
A poorly maintained ventilation system can be a haven of clogged and dirty filters, valves and fans. Energy consumption will be higher, costing you more in utility bills and parts wear.
Cut the Risk of Breakdown
Lower the risk of breakdown by keeping your ventilation system well-maintained. Build-up of dust, dirt and grease places more strain on the working parts.
Comply with the Law
Some ventilation systems are required to meet strict airflow requirements, to maintain the well-being of their staff. Speak to Salix for your FREE VentCare survey.

Few people know about the distinction between ventilation and air conditioning – but it’s an important one. Air conditioning processes the air already within your building, heating or cooling it as appropriate, but it doesn’t introduce any new fresh air.
But what if there’s very little natural airflow into your room? What if your production processes create airborne pollutants? What if the nature of your work creates strong smells? Air conditioning won’t resolve any of those – but a ventilation system will.
Salix installs ventilation systems that improve airflow – and that can improve productivity, employee health and staff/guest satisfaction too.
