Is your Cooling System Ready for the Summer Heat?
It’s Summer in the Bluegrass and the increasing temperatures and humidity are having businesses turning up their cooling systems, often running their systems twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. An inefficient or damaged air conditioning system in the heat of Summer can result in uncomfortable working conditions which can lead to less productivity of your staff or worse yet a temporary shutdown of your business. A breakdown in a manufacturing cooling system can lead to a full factory shutdown to ensure the safety of your staff, as well as prevent damage to your equipment and property, which can also lead to a significant loss of production.

What is Dehumidification?
During these dog days of summer, as we beat the heat and humidity, we thought it would be a good time to talk about Dehumidification in Commercial HVAC systems.
