Air2O eBook: 6 Things You Need to Know About Sick Building Syndrome


According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the term Sick Building Syndrome (SBS) is used to describe “situations in which building occupants experience acute health and comfort effects that appear to be linked to time spent in a building, but no specific illness or cause can be identified.”  The complaints may be localized in a particular room or zone, or may be widespread throughout the building.

SBS continues to be a major problem for companies and property owners all over the world. Even though we first learned about Sick Building Syndrome in the 1970s, many buildings continue to use HVAC solutions that create the perfect breeding grounds for the pathogens that cause this condition.

If you are involved with the design, purchase, or maintenance of commercial HVAC systems, here are six things you need to know about Sick Building Syndrome.
