Approaches to Humidity Balance

System of ventilating pipes

We recently discussed the problems of high humidity in buildings. In this post, we wish to talk more in depth about how we take a holistic approach to creating balancing humidity. A key part of this approach is managing humidity levels inside buildings through proper ventilation, air balancing, and dehumidification. As anyone who has gone through a single summer in Toronto knows, high humidity is a major problem—and it easily gets into buildings where it can cause significant damage beyond simply making a space less comfortable.

The standard measure of high humidity is relative humidity that’s greater than 60%. (Relative humidity is a measure of water vapor in the air relative to the temperature of the air, i.e. the percentage of water vapor in the air of the total amount that could be held at the current temperature.) Residential homes usually aim to balance humidity at 45%. But when it comes to commercial and industrial spaces the ideal humidity balance may be different based on equipment and process. This is one of the main reasons to work with professionals to combat humidity in your facility: our experts will know what humidity level is ideal for the space.

Customized Ductwork Installation: How It Benefits Your Facility

Monday, September 14th, 2020

commercial-air-duct-largeWe are a full-service commercial and industrial HVAC contractor, and that means we can offer extensive services you won’t find at all commercial HVAC companies. One of the most important of these services we provide for our clients is customized ductwork sheet metal installation in Toronto, ON.

When we design ventilation systems for buildings, either as part of new construction or a retrofit-remodel-renovation, we use both pre-fabricated pieces and customized sheet metal ductwork. There’s always a place for prefabricated parts, but it’s rare for a facility to be able to have a practical ventilation system with only these off-the-shelf components. A house can manage with them, but a commercial or industrial space has more complex requirements and variables.

Below are reasons to always go with a commercial/industrial HVAC contractor who can offer you customized sheet metal ductwork installation:

Custom Sheet Metal for a New Commercial HVAC System

Monday, June 25th, 2018

 

System of ventilating pipes

A typical ventilation system set-up in a commercial or industrial facility consists of pre-fabricated duct sections that are fit together as best they can to serve the space. This allows for fast installation of ductwork during new construction, but it is almost never the ideal way of doing it. The space dictates how the ducts should be laid out, but when the ducts are all pre-fabricated there is little flexibility for putting in ducts in a design that will optimizes airflow, air balance, and conditioned air distribution.

The better route for new duct installation during construction is to have a contractor put in customized sheet metal ducts. Not all commercial and industrial HVAC contractors have the facilities, means, and training to do this job. But we do!
