Though consumers are becoming more familiar with IAQ, it’s important for HVAC contractors to facilitate conversations that focus on indoor environmental problems and solutions and then let them make their own decisions.
As consumers become better educated about IAQ, the need for humidification and dehumidification — and the comfort solutions they provide — has increased. According to RnR Market Research, the global market for humidifiers is expected to surpass $1 billion by 2019. Another study, conducted by Grand View Research Inc., states the global dehumidifier market is expected to reach $3.54 billion by 2022.
Mold can be found everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. However, it’s usually not a problem until it begins growing indoors.

Mold can be a serious issue if left untreated, which is perhaps one of the reasons most HVAC contractors tend to avoid it.

As the movement to legalize marijuana continues to take hold across the country, growers are beginning to seek out equipment that will help them maximize production. Until recently, there were no cooling and drying products specifically designed to optimize growing conditions for this agricultural product. Now, new technology is being engineered that can produce the right temperature and humidity conditions to maximize productivity and minimize mold and insect problems.
The Water Savor Controller is a device that limits the amount of excess water leaving a bypass flow-through humidifier and exiting down the drain. It can be easily installed with any brand (new or previously installed) bypass flow-through humidifier.
Single phasing often occurs in an electric motor when one pair of points on its power contactor fails because of the destructive arcing that takes place each time these points open or close. This arc suppressor is designed for AC power applications that operate between 110-480 V and have a maximum allowable current of 235 A (rms).
Most building owners/managers don't know to the degree to which they may see financial benefits from creating healthier buildings. This is a prime opportunity for contractors to fill the void and explain how to achieve healthier buildings through improved IAQ.
