Water may be essential for life, but when it collects on your equipment, creates foggy windows or puddles on your warehouse floor, it can pose a threat to health, safety and productivity.
Condensation is a serious problem in many commercial and industrial settings. When seasonal temperatures fluctuate, warm, humid air comes into contact with cooler surfaces and can cause water vapor in the air to condense into liquid water droplets. This gives rise to all kinds of problems, including rusting equipment, dangerously slick floors, moisture damage to buildings and inventory, mold and mildew growth, and even sick building syndrome.
One of the best ways to prevent condensation is to make sure your facility is well ventilated because good airflow is needed to evaporate excess moisture from interior surfaces. HVLS fans are an ideal condensation solution for big buildings because they are so efficient at moving large volumes of air and creating that evaporative effect.
Who Can Benefit From Our HVLS Condensation Solutions?
HVLS fans are being used with great success in many different industries to combat the hazards of condensation, including:
Automotive — Moist, humid conditions can wreak havoc at auto dealerships and garages. Most automotive facilities have concrete floors that are highly susceptible to condensation. Any oil residue on these surfaces can create very slippery conditions when wet. An HVLS fan in your building will help prevent sweating slab syndrome and reduce the risk of slips and falls. It will also help safeguard valuable vehicles and tools from corrosion and rust.
Aviation — Airplane hangars also can develop slippery floors and rusting equipment due to condensation. HVLS fans are an ideal solution that will also help regulate temperatures and keep the building more comfortable year round. They are a cost-effective ventilation and condensation solution for airport terminals, too.
Commercial — From restaurants and breweries to office buildings and retail stores, commercial facilities need to keep condensation under control to protect merchandise, prevent slip-and-fall injuries and keep foggy windows at bay. Go Fan Yourself HVLS fans are an energy-efficient way to do this and are available in many aesthetically pleasing options to complement any commercial décor.
Government — From the courthouse to the warehouse, HVLS fans are a cost-effective way to safeguard government facilities from the ravages of condensation. Their energy efficiency will help keep operating costs low while meeting government sustainability guidelines.
Manufacturing – Many manufacturing processes generate a lot of heat and moisture, both of which can cause and compound condensation issues. Go Fan Yourself fans are available in sizes ranging from 8 feet to 24 feet in diameter and can be ganged together to keep even the largest manufacturing facilities well ventilated and dry.
Recreational — Where people are active and crowds gather, slip prevention is critical. HVLS fans can significantly reduce the risk of injury and liability in your sporting or entertainment facilities by keeping the air well ventilated and the floors dry. The extra airflow can help reduce odors in these buildings, too.
Warehouses — Warehouse condensation is a serious problem. Not only can it cause accidents when floors get slippery, but condensed moisture can quickly damage packaging and ruin inventory. HVLS fans are widely used in warehouses to combat these issues. Learn more.
