Is the air in your office damaging your brain?

People who live in cities know that it’s not healthy to spend too much time breathing in polluted air near major roads, intersections, and industrial centers. What you may not realize is that the air indoors can be even worse. 

The stagnant air inside enclosed buildings contains the same pollutants as the air outside, but it also traps in all the carbon dioxide people exhale. This is a problem especially in crowded places where people spend extended periods of time, like classrooms and offices. Not only is this air unhealthier than the air outside, but poor air quality at work has also been shown to decrease cognitive function — an office air purifier can help.

The air in your office is making people stupider

A new study from Harvard found that chronic exposure to fine particulate matter such as carbon dioxide caused slower response times and reduced accuracy on cognitive function tests. The study also mentioned that “the extent to which ambient pollution penetrates and accumulates indoors is influenced by ventilation, infiltration, and filtration.”

People who work in offices often find themselves counting down the hours to their lunch break, sometimes stepping out sooner for a cup of coffee as an excuse to get some fresh air to reenergize themselves for a few hours. Improve the health, cognitive function, and efficiency of your employees by installing an air filtration system in your office and elevating workplace air quality.
