How Building Automation-HVAC Integration Improves Indoor Air Quality

Traditionally, HVAC systems within the context of building automation have focused primarily on temperature control for occupant comfort. However, the growing awareness of the profound impact of indoor air quality (IAQ) on health, well-being, and cognitive performance is driving an increased emphasis on air quality management strategies. Building automation integrated with HVAC offers powerful tools to actively monitor, manage, and enhance the air we breathe indoors.
