As modern buildings became more and more airtight in order to aid insulation, they were also cut off from fresh air circulation. This meant that anything that managed to affect air quality in the building tended to keep affecting it, as there was no way for it to flow out of the building.
Fortunately, there are ways to improve your indoor air quality without redesigning your entire commercial property. One way to do this is with the installation of a commercial dehumidifier. Call Air Services Unlimited for more information, or to set up an appointment.
Air Services Unlimited provides commercial dehumidifiers near Beaumont, TX and the surrounding areas.
High humidity is a pretty big problem, especially when it happens in a sealed commercial building. Your body is mostly made up of water, and relies on the right balance of moisture in the air in order to operate properly. When that humidity level gets thrown out of balance, it starts to affect your health. High humidity makes it harder for your body to keep itself cool, because it raises the evaporation point of liquids. That includes sweat, which means the longer it takes your sweat to evaporate, the longer it will take you to cool off.
High humidity also promotes mold growth, which can be a huge problem if allowed to continue unchecked. Certain kinds of mold can cause life–threatening medical conditions, so it’s best to discourage them from flourishing in the walls of your building.
Most commercial dehumidifiers work in much the same way as an air conditioner. They evaporate refrigerant to siphon heat from the air, which draws moisture out of it as well. Then, they heat the air back to room temperature and release it into circulation. The air temperature remains the same, but the moisture is taken out of it.
Properly installing a commercial dehumidifier involves locating just the right spot in the ducts, where it can properly treat all air that is being circulated throughout the building. After that, the dehumidifier will need to be wired into the electrical grid for power. This is not a job that anyone should attempt without proper professional training and experience. If you need a commercial dehumidifier installed, give us a call. We’ll set up an appointment for you with one of our expert technicians, who’ll make sure that your dehumidifier gets installed correctly the first time.
Dehumidifiers are not simple systems, and they will occasionally need professional maintenance and repair. It’s a good idea to have your commercial dehumidifier checked at least once a year, to make sure that it’s functioning properly. Annual maintenance can help your dehumidifier to last for many years longer than it otherwise would. If your dehumidifier does need repairs, though, don’t worry. We provide comprehensive commercial dehumidifier repair services throughout the Beaumont, TX area. If you need a commercial dehumidifier repaired or maintained, call Air Services Unlimited today.
