Autumn is finally here... open the windows, turn off the A/C and enjoy the fresh cool air. Many non-residential buildings are also enjoying this same benefit by using air-side economizers which allows “free cooling” through the HVAC system.
The benefits are obvious but the lower moisture content in the cool air can make it difficult to maintain humidity levels. Conventional wisdom would assume that adding a steam humidifier to raise the relative humidity would resolve the issue, but since they require approximately 1,000 BTUs of energy to evaporate just 1 lb of water, the energy consumption can potentially offset any savings provided by the economizer. For this reason, many building operators will disable the economizer and mechanically cool the return air instead of running the boiler for humidification. Essentially picking the lesser of two evils and simplifying the sequence of operation.

Using only the highest quality components, GoFog’s Control System meets our demanding requirements but we realize our standards may not always align with yours.
ABB VFD’s not your cup of tea? Not a problem, we regularly use Allen Bradley, Yaskawa, and other major suppliers.
