Commercial Air Purification and Air Filtration
The reason indoor air quality suffers so much in modern commercial buildings is because the tight construction makes it hard for fresh air to circulate. It’s difficult to have a well-insulated and energy-efficient commercial facility that also enjoys clean, healthy air.
The starting point for improving commercial IAQ is with air filters. An air filtration system installed by HVAC professionals can trap most larger pollutants, such as dust, lint, dander, pollen, dust mites, etc. For stronger air cleaning power, electronic air purification systems can remove odor molecules, smoke, chemicals, and volatile organic compounds. Special UV air purifiers target organic pollutants such as mold spores, microbes, and bacteria. Speak to our IAQ experts and they’ll find the right set of filters and purifiers for your facility’s requirements.
Balancing Humidity in a Commercial Building
High humidity is one of the biggest obstacles toward comfort in Florida during hot weather. When indoor relative humidity is lowered from above 60%, it makes hot conditions feel 8°F–10°F cooler. That makes a significant impact on comfort and lowers energy consumption to run the air conditioning system. We install commercial dehumidifiers to combat the worst humid conditions in a building.
Dry air can harm comfort and health as well. You don’t want relative humidity to drop below 30%, since it makes cooler days feel worse and can lead to health problems. The installation of a commercial dehumidifier can fix dry indoor air. With both a humidifier and dehumidifier, you’ll enjoy perfectly balanced humidity around the year.
HRV and ERV Systems and More in Sarasota, FL
Drawing fresh air into a building while expelling stale air is one of the best routes toward better IAQ. Letting in fresh air doesn’t have to mean more work for the AC or heater, however. Energy recovery ventilators (ERVs) and heat recovery ventilators (HRVs) use the temperature of the indoor air to pre-cool or pre-heat fresh air brought in from outside. Our technicians can install these systems so your facility enjoys fresh air during any season.
