What Proactive IAQ Solutions to consider: Construction quality
- Facility-Type Specifics: In large facilities and buildings, create maintenance plans and preventative practices for your customers to include in their O&M Management plan - i.e, hospitals have very stringent requirements for indoor air quality, requiring HVAC system components regularly cleaned.

- Key Focus: When considering what proactive IAQ solutions to offer, focus on partnerships with specialists who deliver quality maintenance services (such as air conditioning coil cleaning and duct cleaning). Offering these solutions will significantly improve energy efficiency and IAQ performance of the HVAC systems in a building - Ensuring long term client satisfaction.
