While many of us do not realize it, indoor air is full of pollutants, odors, and allergens that negatively effect our health and the structural integrity of our spaces. Ventilation helps to remove the air of these unwanted pollutants. For commercial spaces, ventilation is especially important.
Here are three commercial spaces that rely on ventilation:
Restaurant kitchens have a high volume of customers, and with that, they have a great deal of activity in their commercial kitchens. Because of this, a great deal of grease, foul odor, and moisture tends to build up in commercial kitchens. To combat this, ventilation is used. Commercial exhaust fans effectively filter the air of unwanted impurities, such as smoke and grease, and improve the overall air quality of the kitchen and the restaurant. Restaurant exhaust systems have to be cleaned once every three months, and sometimes more frequently.
In addition to keeping the air quality sufficient for patrons and the kitchen, restaurants have to make sure that their produce and other food is stored safely and kept cool. In order to do so, restaurants use walk in freezers. When installed with efficient motors, restaurant owners can save $200 per fan every year.
In spaces like hospitals, proper ventilation is extremely important. When people are sick, air environment quality is essential. Along with controlling humidity and odors, commercial centrifugal fans help to circulate the air and rid it of harmful pollutants and allergies. Many hospitals use laminar fans, because of their high air circulation rate of 300 times in one hour.
Many large businesses use warehouses to store products and oversee production. Because these spaces house all of their merchandise, it’s important to have proper ventilation. Otherwise, the business is at risk of property damage and money loss. For ventilation, industrial exhaust fans are used. Industrial exhaust fans keep warehouse spaces dry, cool and fumigated, keeping the environment ideal for product storage.
