Why You Need a Commercial Ventilation System
There are several reasons businesses need a commercial ventilation system. The first reason is to ensure the safety of employees.
When workers are exposed to poor air quality, it can lead to a number of health problems and allow airborne diseases to thrive. In some cases, a poorly ventilated building can even cause serious respiratory illnesses.
While there isn’t specific ventilation legislation regarding COVID-19, it is your responsibility under the Health and Safety at Work Act to take steps to keep your premises safe. Quality ventilation can help prevent the spread of Covid-19.
Another reason businesses need a commercial ventilation system is to meet regulations regarding keeping their premises safe.
For example, restaurants need to have a certain level of ventilation to prevent the build-up of dangerous fumes. If a business does not have the correct level of ventilation, it could be deemed a risk to health and safety.
Ventilation can also help to maintain a comfortable temperature. If a business does not have adequate ventilation, it can cause the build-up of heat and humidity. This can make the workplace uncomfortable for employees and customers alike.
Types of Ventilation
There are numerous types of ventilation systems and parts of larger systems such as air conditioning units.
- Extraction systems are used to remove air from a room and are often used in kitchens and bathrooms.
- VAV systems, or Variable Air Volume systems, supply fresh air to a room while also removing stale air.
- Supply and extract systems work together to create a comfortable working environment by constantly providing fresh air and removing contaminated air.
- Ducting is used to transport and guide fresh and stale air around a building, for instance, as a part of an air conditioning unit.
Robinsons Facilities Services offers commercial ventilation system installation and maintenance services for all types of businesses in Yorkshire. Our accredited team of Refcom certified engineers can diagnose problems with existing systems or advise on the install of a new system.
How Ventilation Systems Work
A typical commercial ventilation system is made up of a series of ducts that transport air around the building.
The system may also have an extractor fan, which removes air from the premises, and potentially a supply fan, which blows fresh air into the building.
Ventilation systems may also be controlled by a central unit such as a HVAC system, which regulates the air change through a building.
There are many different ventilation options and our expert team can advise on the appropriate system for your commercial building.
Commercial Ventilation System Maintenance
It is important to have your commercial ventilation system regularly serviced to ensure it is working correctly and efficiently.
By getting your system serviced you can also stay in line with health and safety regulations and ensure that mould or other harmful substances aren’t getting released into your building.

Commercial Ventilation System FAQs
BS 5925:1991 Code of practice for ventilation principles and designing for natural ventilation outlines the British standards for air-conditioning systems and ventilation systems within a commercial building.
Ventilation systems are inexpensive to run in the majority of instances, and can prevent other costs by preventing hazards and keeping your building running efficiently.
Commercial ventilation systems extract the air from inside a room within the building, which means that clean and fresh air can enter the building. This improves air quality, temperature, and reduces hazards.
