Indoor Air Quality

You probably don’t spend a lot of time thinking about the quality of the air in your building. As long as it’s not full of smoke or gas, you’re good, right? Well, not necessarily.

In many areas, especially desert environments, part of that poor air quality can be attributed to low humidity. Read on to find out about the damaging effects of low humidity, and what you can do about it.

Why You Need a Commercial Humidifier
So, why is low humidity such a big problem? Isn’t it a good thing to have low humidity, especially in warmer areas? Not really. While it’s true that high humidity can make it seem warmer than it really is, low humidity can have negative effects on your health. The vast majority of your body is made of water, and it relies on a certain level of moisture in the air around it. When the moisture level in the air gets too low, it will cause a number of negative effects. The mucus membranes in your nose will dry out and crack, as will your skin. These are a couple of your body’s primary defenses against disease, and if they are weakened it becomes much easier for you to become sick.
Now, imagine what consistently low humidity can do to an entire building, especially during something like flu season. If you don’t want to lose a large number of employees for weeks to preventable illnesses, we strongly advise that you install a commercial humidifier.
We Install Commercial Humidifiers
Installing a commercial humidifier is no easy thing, though. In order to treat all the air circulating through your building, the humidifier will need to be installed in the ducts, typically in the air return vent for your HVAC system. This allows it to release moisture into the air as it’s being circulated by your heater or air conditioner, helping to restore the moisture balance for the entire building’s air. The humidifier will also need to be wired into the building’s power grid, which means installation should only be done by professionals. If you need a commercial humidifier installed, give us a call today.
