Humidity Control


Adding humidity – and being able to precisely control it – is vital to a wide variety of industrial applications. Maintaining the right level of humidity for your commercial operation is crucial. Too much moisture can lead to damaging mold and mildew, or, in the case of your workforce, uncomfortably warm, sticky conditions. But humidity that’s too low also has its disadvantages. Depending on your industry, it can even result in damage to equipment, loss of a commercial crop or other disasters. Let MDi HVAC & Plumbing, LLC customize a solution for your unique business.

MDi HVAC & Plumbing, LLC offers a comprehensive Commercial Maintenance Agreement that is available on humidity control units, whether we installed them or not.  Having your equipment checked periodically, even if it seems to be operating smoothly, can catch small problems before they become expensive headaches.

Humidity Control

Comfort Level

Maintaining a comfortable level of humidity for your workforce is important for productivity. When temperatures edge upward, moisture-laden air keeps the sweat from our skin from evaporating and cooling us off. We feel sluggish, and the level of activity diminishes. In the winter, however, low humidity can also make us feel uncomfortable, as it dries out our skin, throats and nasal passages.

Improved Efficiency

When humidity is too high during the summer, we’re likely to want to lower the thermostat to feel comfortable; in the winter, we feel chillier when the air is dry, since cooler air holds less moisture. Increasing the relative humidity can make people feel warmer in the winter, so you don’t need to boost the heating. That also means the HVAC system doesn’t have to work as hard to achieve temperature set points, so you’re saving on wear and tear.

Reduced Sickness

It’s a fact: the flu bug is more easily transmitted from human to human under cool, dry conditions. When the air is more humid, the flu virus has a harder time surviving. You can actually reduce the incidence of sickness in your establishment by maintaining higher humidity in the winter when the flu virus is of greater concern.

Reduce Static Electricity

Depending on your industry, you may need to reduce static electricity to a minimum. As you’re likely aware, colder, drier air tends to result in increased static. In a factory setting, where you’re running electronic equipment and machinery, static can contribute to electrical shorts that may be hazardous to humans and equipment. Maintaining a higher level of humidity can actually reduce static shocks. Reducing static is also important in clean rooms, laboratories and chemical manufacturing facilities.
