AIR CONDITIONED SPACES

In air-conditioned rooms, the level of humidity typically decreases. Air conditioning systems work by cooling the air, which causes moisture to condense out of the air. This condensation is collected and drained away, resulting in a decrease in humidity levels within the room. As the air cools, it loses its ability to hold moisture, leading to a reduction in relative humidity. This is why air-conditioned spaces often feel dry compared to the outside environment, especially in regions with high humidity levels.

PRINTING INDUSTRY

Printing companies often store and use large volumes of paper and these can be sensitive to changes by humidity. Low humidity can cause the paper to dry out and shrink, which can affect the size and quality of the paper. Even with the right humidity cost savings can be made in the usage of ink. 

MUSEUM

Museums buildings have specific indoor environment requirements. The criteria for setting the levels of environmental parameters are twofold: proper conditions for preservation of artifacts displayed and conditions for visitors comfort.

INTEGRATED AIR SYSTEMS

Air systems in buildings play a significant role in controlling humidity levels. The effect of air systems on humidity can be influenced by various factors, including the type of HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) system, outdoor weather conditions, and building design. Controlling humidity in buildings is essential for occupant comfort, health, and to prevent issues such as mold growth and damage to building materials.

WOODEN INTERIORS

During the winter, when homes are heated and the air is dry, wood flooring loses some of its moisture and contracts or shrinks as a result. This can be avoided by a proper humidity level. 

 

ARCHIVE

Materials within libraries and archives already contain moisture and are therefore highly sensitive to drying out. In high relative humidity conditions moulds thrive and appear in circular patches with a fluffy composition and produce acidic chemicals that cause further deterioration processes.

HEALTHCARE

It’s important to note that the ideal humidity level can vary depending on the specific healthcare environment and the needs of patients. Healthcare professionals, therefore, need to carefully control and monitor humidity levels to ensure the well-being of patients and the effectiveness of medical equipment and procedures.

LABORATORY

Proper humidity is essential for laboratories as it can affect the accuracy of experiments and affect worker safety. For example, low humidity can create static electricity, which can be dangerous for sensitive equipment and people.

OFFICE

Maintaining good humidity levels in offices is essential for the well-being and productivity of employees and can also have positive effects on the longevity of office equipment and aesthetics. It’s important to strike a balance that ensures comfort and health without going to extremes of too dry or too humid conditions.

LARGE HOME

You probably know that it’s harmful to breathe in polluted air when you’re outside. The same is true when you’re indoors. We spend about 90% of our time indoors, at home, at work or at school.

INDUSTRY

Employees should be safe while on the job; that includes healthy air quality. Although laws and policies exist to protect workers, problems with air quality on the job are often overlooked. Breathing unhealthy air at work can be dangerous, but it’s also preventable.

INSTRUMENTS

Wood is an organic material which exchanges moisture with the surrounding air. It swells and contracts depending on it’s moisture content, and it’s moisture level depends directly on the moisture in the surrounding air. This change in shape and size puts tremendous stress on the instrument.

PLANTS

Humidity is essential for the overall well-being of plants. It supports key physiological processes, aids in nutrient uptake, prevents desiccation, regulates temperature, reduces disease risks, and contributes to the visual appeal of plants. Gardeners and plant enthusiasts often monitor and adjust humidity levels to ensure their plants thrive in their specific environmental conditions.

CIGAR ROOMS

To achieve the ideal humidity level for cigars, they are typically stored in a controlled environment with a relative humidity around 65-70%, which is considered optimal for most cigars. This ensures that cigars are kept in the best possible condition, preserving their flavor, aroma, and overall quality.

FACTS ABOUT AIR

Indoor Air quality can be defined in three segments. 

DRY - WET
Humidity %
CLEAN - POLLUTED
Nitric Oxide - NO
Nitrogen Dioxide - NO2
Ozone - O3
Particulate Matter - PM
COLD - HOT
Celsius Degrees °C
