Commercial Humidifiers – Helping You Combat Dry, Winter Air

From snow emergencies to increased energy consumption, your business has plenty of issues to deal with in winter. On top of seasonal challenges, you could also be experiencing more absenteeism and decreased productivity. You may think employee illnesses are something you will have to manage; however, there are some ways to mitigate these problems. A humidifier could be the perfect solution. Here’s why.


The Effects of Dry Air

As the Cleveland Clinic explains, cold air naturally holds less moisture than warm air. Your HVAC only magnifies the problem, which pushes out dry, warm air. This drier, winter air makes people more vulnerable to getting sick. In fact, they claim that asthma, sinus problems, bronchitis, and even nosebleeds can all be attributed to dry air.


A lack of moisture in the air can even lead to fatigue and headaches. These problems are magnified in winter when the days are already shorter and colder.


Dry air doesn’t just affect your employees, as office equipment may also suffer. That’s why you may feel a charge of static when using your computer, copier, or even the coffeepot. According to Techwalla, frequently discharging static electricity can slowly damage your computer and might eventually lead to chip failure.


How a Humidifier Helps

Humidifiers circulate water that is then turned into a vapor or mist before being dispersed into the air. This raises the humidity level to an ideal range of 30 to 50 percent.


The vapor released is in the form of tiny droplets and will dry or evaporate very quickly. Consequently, you won’t have to worry about water damage. Humidifiers also operate very quietly so your employees are unlikely to be bothered by any noise. Aside from adding water occasionally, very little maintenance is required.


Commercial Humidifier Benefits

How could your business benefit from installing a humidifier? A few of the advantages you may enjoy include:

  • Reducing absenteeism due to allergies or the common cold
  • Decreasing fatigue
  • Improving morale
  • Increasing productivity
  • Preventing damage to expensive office equipment


With a commercial humidifier, you’ll immediately notice improvements in indoor air quality. Your investment could easily pay for itself in just a few short years.

What Type of Humidifier is Best?

To combat dry air, many people resort to using ultrasonic humidifiers. Ultrasonic humidifiers are smaller appliances that normally sit on a desktop. As such, they are generally personal devices that may benefit only a limited number of people.


Some area businesses still have old-fashioned radiators or boilers. At one time, a popular method of humidifying rooms was to place a pot of hot water on top of these appliances. Not only is that dangerous, but spilled water could also damage your heating source.


Here at South Jersey Heating and Cooling, we recommend central humidifiers for our commercial clients. Central humidifiers attach to your HVAC system and can therefore cover a much larger area. Most importantly, though, they are safe and easy to use. Don’t attempt a DIY solution that offers unpredictable results. Call South Jersey Heating and Cooling instead.
