When it comes to keeping your office spaces cool, dehumidified and comfortable, it’s important to understand that central and rooftop HVAC units are designed to make the spaces comfortable for most of the occupants of a building. Some individuals and areas may still be too hot or may not receive enough airflow. Thankfully, there are supplemental air circulation and cooling devices available for office spaces that can help increase your indoor comfort levels.
Improving Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) with Fans, Portable Air Conditioners and Evaporative cooler, otherwise known as Swamp Coolers
Indoor air quality is incredibly important in office spaces for both workers and customers alike. Hot, stuffy conditions can cause your employees to feel ill and slow their productivity. Excessive humidity and moisture can lead to mold and mildew problems in bathrooms, kitchens and break rooms, and those mold spores can be spread throughout the office building by the HVAC system. If the moisture in the air is exceptionally high, your building may start to develop mold inside the walls. All of this can lead to sick building syndrome (SBS). Installing oscillating fans and desk fans along with portable air conditioners and evaporative coolers can help reduce the risk of moisture build-up, and even improve your indoor air quality and the comfort levels of your employees and building occupants.
Types of Supplemental Ventilation for Office Spaces
If you need supplemental ventilation for your offices, workstations and cubicles, we sell all types and sizes of air movement fans (including desk fans and pedestal fans), portable air conditioners, and portable evaporative coolers.
Bathroom Exhaust Fans
Bathrooms are wet areas. They contain sinks and toilets, and some office complex bathrooms, especially those located around employee gyms also contain showers. All that water, especially hot water, can lead to a buildup of moisture in the air. Installing bathroom exhaust fans can help vent that excess moisture to the outside before it has a chance to condense on your walls and contribute to mold growth. Bathrooms fans also eliminate odors that occur in restrooms by replacing the old and smelly air with fresh air. We offer bathroom exhaust fans from 50 CFM to 1900 CFM for large locker room type lavatories.
Pedestal, Floor and Desk Air Circulators
Pedestal fans and floor and desk air circulators can help move the air in a particular location, like a cubical, small office or mail room. When individual areas have hot, stuffy or stale air that doesn’t naturally circulate, it can lead to a buildup of heat, humidity, odors and chemical fumes. Installing a properly sizedair movement fan can help alleviate these aforementioned conditions, and help to dissipate fumes and odors. Our pedestal fan range from 4,100 CFM up to as much as 20,000 CFM, and our floor and desk air circulators crank out the air as well with CFM's up to 5,850.
Portable Air Conditioners
Some areas aren’t going to benefit from a traditional fan. These areas may have heat producing equipment, contain a lot of windows and experience excessive heat buildup due to the sun. In these instances, a portable air conditioner may be the answer. Portable air conditioners do not need to be placed in a window. Instead, many can be vented to existing ducts. These units filter, dehumidify and filter the air in a particular location, which can increase the comfort and the air quality.
Portable Evaporative Coolers
Portable evaporative coolers, like the Hessaire MC17M, 800 CFM, 3-speed evaporative cooler, can be used indoors and outdoors to provide a targeted blast of cool air. These personal size cooler fans are perfect for small offices and cubical as well as outside on patios, lounge areas and employee break areas. These swamp coolers utilize cold water to reduce the temperature of the ambient air. As the ambient air is sucked through the fan, it first passes over the water reservoir where the air picks up the cool water. Many of our units can be filled manually or connected to a water source. Industrial Fans Direct also offers units for larger office, and open areas. With CFM's available up to 28,500 we have you covered and cooled whatever the application.
Wall Mounted Air Circulators and Workstation Fans
When you need to increase the circulation in a large area, like a block of cubicles or employee workstations, you may want to consider our workstation fans (which can be mounted to ceilings, walls or benches), or a wall mounted air circulator (oscillating and non-oscillating models available). These fans have the ability to move a large volume of air without using a lot of power. Our workstation fans can be purchased with blades between 12” and 24”, and our wall mounted air circulation have fan blades that range in size from 18” to 30”.
Industrial Fans Direct carries a wide variety of high quality air circulation, air cooling and ventilation products for most offices, office buildings and other work spaces. Whether you are looking for wall mounted air circulator fans, individual workstation fans, personal space evaporative cooling fans or swamp coolers, desk or floor fans, a bathroom lavatory exhaust fan, or portable air conditioner units, we've got you covered.
