How Could a Dehumidifier Improve My Office Air Quality?
Wednesday, April 19, 2017 | Smoak's Comfort Control
Commercial services can improve the air quality in your office by reducing the indoor humidity levels. When there's too much moisture in your air, it can lead to unpleasant smells and even harm those with allergies and respiratory problems. Additionally, it can make your office workers uncomfortable, even if the indoor temperature is at a comfortable level. The best way to keep humidity at an acceptable level is to get a dehumidifier.
A Dehumidifier Will Help You Feel Cooler
In the summertime, the air is often humid, especially in the South. This can make it feel a lot hotter than it really is. To maximize the effect of your air conditioner, you also need to dehumidify your office's air. Your current HVAC system may already have a dehumidifier function built in, but if it can't remove enough moisture from the air, you may want to purchase a standalone dehumidifier. This can take additional moisture out of certain areas of your office. With drier air, everyone will feel more comfortable.
A Dehumidifier Will Reduce Allergens
Allergens like mold, mildew and dust mites love plenty of moisture in the air. By keeping your indoor humidity levels at an acceptably low level such as around 40%, these allergens will have difficulty growing and spreading.
A Dehumidifier Will Improve Bad Smells
A musty smell will often be the result of damp air. By reducing indoor moisture, these unpleasant odors can diminish quite a bit, at least to a point where they're no longer noticeable.
