Increase office productivity with clean air

Let's avoid fatigue and lack of concentration in the office. Research shows that clean air is central to providing the conditions for peak performance throughout the working day.

Clean and healthy air in the office is essential for productivity - and so is well-being and keeping us healthy.

Bad and dirty air is exactly what it sounds like, namely air containing harmful substances. Generally speaking, 20% of the harmful particles in an office come from outside and as much as 80% are generated by activities and operations inside the premises.

Whatever the origin, we breathe in the harmful particles, which have a negative effect on our health while affecting our performance. A study from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health shows how air quality within an office can have a significant impact on employees' cognitive function, including response times and ability to focus.

Other substances that affect productivity are those that make us sick and lethargic. For example, traffic pollution and mold spores can cause respiratory problems and lead to the development and exacerbation of asthma. If it is allergens from animals or nature, allergy sufferers in the workplace will be negatively affected and have difficulty maintaining productivity.

Together, all these particles and substances make us tired, unproductive employees who are also at risk of headaches and illnesses. In other words, clean air is essential for maintaining high productivity in the office.

Time to clear the air

But how do you make sure that your office air quality is at its best throughout the day?

Opening windows or increasing ventilation are neither effective nor viable options. The choice is really simple. It's between the old ostrich technique - figuratively hiding your head in the sand and continuing to breathe in harmful particles - or using innovative air purification technology for better health and increased productivity.

What is required are high-performance and quiet air purifiers adapted to the specific challenges of the office environment, ensuring that the air is free of harmful particles. Requirements need to be set to remove dangerous and troublesome particles, from pollen and mold to viruses, exhaust gases and bacteria.

If we succeed in this, we will of course have more alert and productive employees, as well as the assurance that our work environment is safe to be in and actively works to improve well-being. Quite simply, we create a humanly sustainable working day.

Award-winning and hassle-free service offering

And with the award-winning LightAir Health+ service offer, you don't even have to worry about installation, maintenance and unexpected costs. This subscription solution is a convenient way to get fresh air at a fixed price, without having to do a single thing yourself.

The offer combines patented and Swedish-developed technologies, with air purifiers combined with scientifically proven virus inhibitors. The latter neutralize a variety of airborne viruses, immediately in the air and without having to pass through a filter. During a multi-year study, researchers at Karolinska Institutet have observed how the technology breaks down the protein envelope so that the virus can no longer infect human cells. Thus, in addition to minimizing the levels of harmful particles in the office, LightAir Health+ also results in an effective reduction in the spread of infection in the office.

Bad air can be something of an invisible problem that many of us at work barely think about. However, the problem is very real and there are also very real solutions to meet these challenges. Ultimately, it is up to us to choose either the cone technique or innovative air cleaning technology.
