A dehumidifier to protect your workplace

As hot season coming in business places start heating up and air conditioning system begins to face the hottest days of the year, you may find the air inside your building continues to get stuffier and stuffier. It is difficult to get comfortable in an office that has humid air, and it is also more difficult for your HVAC to do its job. This is where an office dehumidifier can be a beneficial addition to your climate control plan for your business.

What Are the Benefits of an Office Dehumidifier?

The number one benefit, the worker will notice immediately is the effect in the air when you use a dehumidifier. It will make the air more comfortable to breathe in and the stuffiness will be gone. Instead, the air in the area becomes cooler and doesn’t feel damp and sticky. But that’s not all you will notice!

Below are some of the benefits you can get when you use a dehumidifier

1. From damper to drier environment

A damp and humid environment is the most favorable condition as the breeding ground for mold. A damp environment can cause the surrounding air to dampen anything that it comes in contact with, meaning molding may occur to your furniture, books, documents, electronic appliances, building materials, fabrics and much more. To alleviate this problem, the level of humidity should be reduced to ensure that it doesn't encourage the production of the mold. A dehumidifier helps by absorbing the excess moisture and releases drier air back into the room.

2. Prevent mold and mildew

Mold and mildew are one of the root causes of many health problems, the most prominent one is allergy reactions, asthma and breathing difficulties. Fresher air prevents the growth of mold and mildew to accumulate. Not only can this stink up the environment, but it can also become a health hazard. The last thing you want is your employees breathing in unhealthy air. A dehumidifier will keep the indoor humidity where it belongs—between 35% and 45%. It will ensure nothing is growing and potentially making people in the office sick.

3. Say goodbye to a musty smell

A musty smell is the consequence of excess humidity and the cause of mold and mildew to form. These fungi release foul gases which can be absorbed into any fabric present in the area. These could be very damaging to the property and very uncomfortable for the dweller in the room.

Placing a dehumidifier in the area can help absorb excess moisture and remove any unwanted smell in the room.

4. Reduce condensation

Condensation might occur if the air is too humid if no prevention action is taken it may create even more problem such as paint wall or wallpaper peeling, shrinking wood, and etc. So it wise to obtain a dehumidifier to minimize condensation from occurring.

5. Higher energy efficiency

When the air inside your office is too humid, your HVAC has a hard time keeping up. It may end up running continuously in an attempt to keep the environment comfortable. It will mean you will be using far more energy—and that costs your business money. It also increases the wear and tears on your HVAC system. Adding a dehumidifier as a comfort accessory will enable your system to work more efficiently.
