Moisture management of sensitive buildings
- Being able to keep a low temperature in the building without the risk of moisture-related damage
- Dehumidification which is easy to install without extensive rebuilding or ventilation pipes
REDUCE THE TEMPERATURE
Airwatergreen technology makes it possible to reduce the energy consumption in buildings that are not in use continuously by reducing unnecessary heating, without risking moisture damage and expensive restorations. Keeping a building warmed up as a means to keep the relative humidity level (RH) under control is a costly method, according to a study done at Uppsala University. It is 5 times more cost effective to use dehumidification that removes the water from the air, than using heating to maintain the correct relative humidity level (RH).
A dry and cold building is an efficient and climate-smart building. Many buildings, such as the churches, are often designed to be kept cold. Airwatergreen currently has installations in over 100 churches.
- Simple installation without the need for any holes in the facades
- Low energy consumption and equally effective at low temperatures.
More and more municipal real estate and schools are now making use of the possibility of avoiding mould and bacterial growth in their under ground spaces, crawl spaces and attics.
- Connect the power supply and drain the water.
- Place the dehumidifier where you want it and set the desired moisture level.
Then it's just getting started. It can't be easier than that!
Dehumidification with Airwatergreen technology means that no holes are required for walls or facades, since no ventilation pipes are needed. The water is removed through a hose to the nearest drain or collected in a container specially designed for the purpose.
A special trolley with built-in 40 liter tank is available as an accessory to easily set up and remove the dehumidifier as needed.
The dehumidifier can be set with parameters for the right humidity level or controlled against dew point or alternatively connected to an external control system via Wifi or Modbus connection.
Depending on the size of the building, one or more FLEX dehumidifiers may be needed or a REX for larger buildings. For example, an ordinary church, which holds around 600 m3 of air, is built in stone and is used from time to time and kept at 5 degrees, typically 1-2 FLEX units.
