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
Hot condensation makes it possible to reduce energy consumption in buildings that are not used continuously by reducing heating, without risking moisture damage and expensive restorations. Keeping a building heated so as to keep the relative humidity level under control is a costly method according to a study done at Uppsala University and which can be read HERE. It is 5 times as 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 just over 100 churches.
There, our product benefits come in handy; simple installation without holes in facades, low energy consumption and equally effective at low temperatures. When it is time for start-up - just start warming a day or two in advance! More and more municipal real estate and schools are now making use of the possibility of avoiding mould and bacterial growth in their crawling spaces and attics.
You want to protect your buildings but also avoid unhealthy air and smell.
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 hot condensation 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.
