Environmental control systems help protect commercial buildings from floods, hazardous materials, and toxic gases such as carbon monoxide. They also monitor temperature changes and keep facilities within optimal ranges for the preservation of products and the safety of employees.
These systems vary in size and complexity depending on the size and nature of the facility where they are implemented. For instance, a hospital or factory would have a much more extensive and elaborate system than a small office space or a small-scale retail location. These systems are important to detect hazardous conditions within a building.
