The last thing any business owner wants is for a customer to become ill while in their establishment. And they really don’t want to be the cause of that illness. Relying on a traditional range ventilation systems can place your customers and employees at risk for serious health issues.

Standard range ventilation systems recirculate the air, relying on expensive filters to cleanse harmful substances from the atmosphere. It is a proven system, but also a potentially dangerous one.

Filters can get clogged. A clogged filter isn’t doing its job. This means that the harmful substances generated by your indoor range – lead, mercury, carbon monoxide and others – are not being removed, but are just being passed right back around for your patrons to breath in. And even when the filters are working, the recirculated air is moving past this nest of toxins in a continual stream, giving them an opportunity to leech back into your supposedly clean air.

Toxic levels can build up quicker than you might think. Depending on the levels in your air, people can suffer a variety of symptoms from eye irritation, to headache, nausea, muscle cramps, fever, fainting and, if the problem is serious enough, death.

Dirty filters alone aren’t the issue. The fundamental design of a traditional HVAC system can’t help but circulate contaminants right back to the place they were supposed to be removed from. If something goes wrong with the system, it can end up pumping bad air into your range, concentrating pollutants and generating a problem where one really didn’t exist.

So, how can this problem be avoided?

While you can’t eliminate the generation of toxins, you can select an HVAC system that utilizes cutting edge innovative technology to insulate your customers from the problem. Rushing Air’s Conditioned Air Displacement System leverages a design that avoids recirculation. Instead it uses fresh outside air which means all those pollutants inside do not get a chance to hang around and poison people. Secondly, it does not depend on unreliable filters, further safeguarding your business.
