Ideally, renovations will result in an improved space. However, with so many details to consider, some might be too easy to overlook. HVAC design is one of these details. Renovating a building or even just a single office can go wrong if HVAC design is not taken into account.Read more →
At first glance, a central humidifier might seem like a strange device to consider, but there are several key benefits of central humidifiers for office spaces. Learn more about central humidifier benefits below. If you’re like many people, you might think that humidity is always the enemy of an enclosed space. After all, if your office has excess humidity, it can cause a host of problems. In truth, what you should actually be aiming for is the optimal humidity level, which is between 40% and 45%. A level above 50% is where discomfort sets in, and one below 30% is where things are considered too dry.Read more →
Looking for alternatives to HFCs? You’re not alone. A2L refrigerants are growing in popularity around the world.
In 1987, a coalition of nations signed a treaty known as the Montreal Protocol. This agreement led to the banning of refrigerants responsible for the depletion of the ozone layer. Throughout the 1990s, ozone-harming chemicals were phased out in favor of a new chemical: hydrofluorocarbons, or HFCs. While HFCs helped heal the hole in the ozone layer, they have terrible side effects — scientists have discovered that HFCs contribute thousands of times more to global warming than CO2.
