Today’s engineers understand the importance of humidification. However, the role of air humidity was overlooked for many years as the HVAC industry struggled to develop effective, reliable solutions. In recent decades, the industry has introduced a series of sophisticated innovations that allow engineers to create commercial air quality solutions that stabilize humidity, maintain occupant health and comfort, and provide more consistency to a wide range of medical applications and industrial processes.
In healthcare facilities such as hospitals and medical practices, the proper humidity levels keep occupants healthier, improve immune system function, and dramatically minimize issues associated with dry eyes or dry skin. Modern humidification systems also reduce the density of airborne particles. The right humidity level also reduces the risk of electrostatic charges, which may damage sensitive medical equipment. The products represented by CESI are easy to sanitize and maintain.
In the pharmaceutical industry, humidity plays a crucial role in creating stable lab environments. The proper humidity level can improve the viscosity of materials, slow evaporation, and decrease or eliminate airborne contaminations. Proper humidity levels are also an essential factor in increasing the shelf life and stability of pharmaceuticals.
In the education field, schools are actively re-evaluating the importance of humidity. Maintaining proper humidity levels in these facilities can be complicated because of high occupant density, but a properly designed commercial humidification system can eliminate this challenge. In educational settings, the right humidity level has many benefits, including decreased risk of respiratory infections. Maintaining the proper air humidity can also reduce the severity of common health conditions, including asthma, sinusitis, bronchitis, nose bleeds, dry skin, and dry eyes. Comfortable air humidity also enhances learning environments, making students more receptive and focused on their work.
