Commercial Dehumidification

How Does A Commercial Dehumidification System Work?

A dehumidification system works by pulling moisture from the air. This air is filtered and cooled, converting the humidity into condensation. As the condensation accumulates it is then stored in a tank that will drain through a water line connected to your sump pump. Damp warehouses, offices, basements, and server rooms can lead to machine and stock damage as well as structural damage in the long run. The most effective way to reduce the amount of moisture in the air and avoid this type of damage is with a commercial dehumidification system.

These systems utilize a condenser along with evaporated power in order to condense and remove humidity and moisture in the air. The most powerful commercial dehumidifier can capture and pump more than 20 galls of water each day. 

Installing a commercial dehumidification system has many advantages three of the biggest being:

Clean Air

These systems will provide you with air that is clean and free of allergens and is easier to breathe. High humidity feeds the conditions necessary to produce mold and will also contribute to a musty, stale odor. Breathing in this air can be extremely harmful. By removing excess moisture from the air, a commercial dehumidification system makes your air cleaner and safer.

Structural Protection

Excess moisture can be extremely harmful to your commercial space too. It works to degrade the building’s stability by rotting the structure of it and create damage such as sagging floors. Excess moisture can also cause damage to the furniture in the building as well. Having a commercial dehumidification system helps to protect the structures that make up your commercial space as well as the structures inside of your workplace.

Savings

Why Have A Commercial Dehumidifier

A commercial dehumidification system is an easy, low maintenance way to keep your workplace healthy, dry, and comfortable for you and your employees. High levels of humidity are typically found in basements and smaller spaces, however this excess moisture can rise and make its way throughout your entire building. This is why you may feel hot and sticky inside your office and this excess moisture can also cause pest problems, mildew growth, and health issues.

Commercial dehumidifiers work in one of two ways. Some models are large enough and portable making it easy to remove moisture from the air throughout your entire workplace. While others install directly onto your HVAC system and dehumidify the air as it flows through your air ducts.

Deciding Which Commercial Dehumidification System is Best for you

When deciding which dehumidification system is best there are a few specifications that you need to take into account. Some of these specifications include:

  • The noise level which is measured in decibels 
  • The maximum capacity which is meausred at 90% humidity or at saturation 
  • The airflow which is measured in CFM
  • The square footage of the building. For a 2,000 square foot area you will need a much stronger commercial dehumidifier than you would need for a 1,000 square foot area.
  • Energy efficiency which is based on the coefficient of efficiency also known as COP.
  • The amount of power generated. This is measured in watts. For example residential dehumidifiers are powered by 500 W while commercial ones typically exceed 1000 W 

All of these specifications may seem a bit overwhelming and like a lot of work to calculate. However, figuring out these specifications can help you make an educated decision about what dehumidifier will be best for your workplace.

Types of Dehumidifiers

When it comes to commercial dehumidification there are four primary types.

  1. Compression Dehumidifiers 
  2. Mechanical/ Refrigeration Dehumidifiers 
  3. Absorption Based Desiccant Dehumidifiers 
  4. Adsorption Based Desiccant Dehumidifiers

The specifications listed above will help our team determine which type of dehumidifier is best for your unique work place needs. Some of the best systems and the ones we recommend the most, offer a combination of system technologies. For example some of our commercial clients have systems that use a refrigeration dehumidifier combined with an adsorption dehumidification system. Our team is well versed in the dehumidification process so we are able to asses your workplace environment and work with you to install a system that produces your desired results.
