Indoor air quality

Every building offers its unique challenges and opportunities when it comes to Indoor Air Quality. Good indoor air quality improves the personal well-being and health of your employees. Universal Engineering Services has the tools and knowledge to provide our customers with a healthy environment for their facilities. We stand ready to support your team with our own professional, efficient installation services to provide a healthy and clean environment at your workplace.

We offer comprehensive experience in the surveillance of a variety of indoor and outdoor environments, as well as specific experience in healthcare facility design. Our extensive background with emerging pathogens, bacteria, mold, mildew, bacteria, pollen, viruses, infectious diseases and intervention strategies is backed up with knowledgeable, credible, and seasoned expert testimony involving diseases from environmental sources. Not only does UES employ the most cutting-edge equipment, but it is backed with over 15 years of experience and strictly follows WHO standards.

First step in evaluating the existing air quality and opportunities for improvement is an on-site evaluation. This typically will involve a thorough building walkthrough, spot measurements of relevant air quality indicators, and inspections of air handlers and air distribution systems. Once the evaluation is completed, a written report details opportunities to improve Indoor Air Quality and provides an implementation estimate.

Our specialists are trained and experienced in working with facilities and maintenance personnel to fully train them on any necessary maintenance procedures that may be required after air-filtration technology installation.

UES identify the causes and effects of fungi, bacteria, Legionella and other bio aerosol pathogens on human health and offers a range of air cleaners; let us help you choose the best one for your facility indoor air quality.

HEPA Air Purification System

The HEPA Air Purification System can be added to your central heating and cooling system, or you can use it as a portable, stand-alone air cleaner. It uses three filters to clean your home’s air:

  • A carbon pre-filter removes large particles, such as dust, pollen and fibers.
  • A HEPA filter traps the tiniest particles including bacteria, attached viruses, mold, smoke and dust.
  • A carbon trap absorbs volatile organic compounds (VOCs) present as gases, fumes and odors.
Ultraviolet (UV) Air Cleaner

The ultraviolet (UV) air cleaner uses UV lights to help eliminate bacteria, mold, fungi, and viruses. It’s installed on your central heating and cooling system and can prevent the growth of biofilm on the evaporation coil.

HVAC Air Filter

Depending on the type of furnace you have, you might be able to upgrade from the standard furnace air filter in your furnace to one of these higher-performing options:

  • A permanent, washable, durable plastic furnace filter has an electrostatic charge for better filtering. It comes with a lifetime warranty and is available in custom sizes.
  • A pleated paper filter has more surface area than a normal paper filter, so it traps more dirt and dust. It’s available in 10-inch and 5-inch thicknesses.

Universal Engineering Services is committed to ensuring that customer air quality goals have been attained after the installation of any technology solutions. When desired, we also provide long-term monitoring to ensure continued compliance.
