Improve Occupant Comfort & Reduce Energy Costs Through Humidity Control
IF HUMIDITY CONTROL IS A PAIN POINT WE EMPOWER YOU WITH RETROFIT STRATEGIES YOU CAN IMPLEMENT NOW“
We have all experienced that instant relief of walking into an air conditioned space on an extremely humid day. And it doesn’t have to be stifling hot because even in the upper 80’s, humidity can still be brutal. Yet after a couple minutes, the relief wears off. Now you feel cold. Your shirt is sticking to the sweat. Let’s say you are at work, so you begrudgingly go to your desk and send an email to the facility manager that “it’s too cold!” Or if you are shopping, you quickly grab the items you want, staying clear of the open refrigerated aisles unless you desperately need some milk or yogurt.
As a facility manager, you are at the receiving end of these frustrations. You look at the space temperatures and they are all hitting their set-point. Why are these people cold? Colleagues stop inviting you to lunch because they think you are not doing your job. Or marketing is complaining that customers are not staying in the store long enough to buy additional items, especially those in the refrigerated aisles. Finally, to add insult to injury, the increasingly popular corporate energy goals demand you reduce next year’s utility bills by 20%.
At Transformative Wave, we manufacture retrofit technologies for Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems, and have a long-standing history working with HVAC service providers and installers. We understand you are caught between a rock and a hard place. We know your frustration because facility managers, in turn, look to us to find solutions to this issue. The following article explains how poor HVAC humidity control can lead to discomfort even when the space's temperature is at the set-point. If humidity control is a pain point, we empower you with retrofit strategies you can implement now, that achieve that critical balance between improved dehumidification and lower energy bills.
