Improving Indoor Air Quality: A guide on Commercial Ventilation Solutions

In commercial buildings, the quality of indoor air can significantly impact the health and productivity of its occupants. At BFS, our commitment as a ‘one-stop shop’ for a broad spectrum of building and maintenance services extends to ensuring your building’s air is as fresh as possible. In this guide, we delve into all things ventilation and explore how our expertise in mechanical ventilation, encompassing heating, cooling, and humidity control through HVAC systems, can create a healthier and more productive working environment.

Why worry about building ventilation?

Ever heard of Sick Building Syndrome (SBS)? It’s a common symptom of a building with poor ventilation. SBS can result in headaches, dizziness and breathing difficulties. These symptoms serve as a reminder that we may be neglecting our building’s air quality. In fact, it has been proven that enhancing the ventilation within your building is likely to contribute to the overall happiness, productivity, and well-being of its occupants.

Improving Commercial Ventilation with BFS

Our focus at BFS revolves around three core areas: Variable Air Volume (VAV) systems, extraction systems, and ductwork. Let’s explore each of these components and understand how they contribute to elevating the ventilation standards in your commercial building.

Variable Air Volume Systems (VAV)

VAV systems are an efficient way of controlling the conditions of large commercial buildings with diverse requirements. By supplying air at variable temperatures and flow rates, VAV systems ensure energy efficiency, easy control, and precise room-level adjustments, catering to the unique needs of different zones within the building.

Extraction Fans

Installed strategically in bathrooms and kitchens, extraction fans are engineered to extract moisture and eliminate odours, enhancing ventilation and air quality. Kitchen extraction fans also help to remove fumes, heat, grease, and smoke. Regular maintenance is important and if you find your fans in need of repairs or replacements, our team at BFS is ready to assist.


Ducts are conduits that form the backbone of a good ventilation system, serving as passages for the delivery or removal of air. At BFS, we offer an extensive range of ductwork systems, including PVC and fire-rated options, ensuring that your ventilation system is tailored to your building’s specific needs.
