You can’t have a properly functioning commercial building without proper ventilation. The right ventilation ensures that your building is a safe and healthy environment for your employees. It also helps your building stay up to code and regular maintenance will prevent major problems later on that could be costly. DCI sells a wide range of steel building ventilation products that will keep your place of business healthy and productive.
How Can I Improve Steel Building Ventilation?
If your building feels stuffy and lacks fresh air, you may be experiencing problems in ventilation. People may feel symptoms such sneezing, runny nose, lethargy, headache, dizziness, irritability, or forgetfulness. Maybe you’re running the AC all day and driving up energy costs, but the building doesn’t seem any cooler. If any of these apply, it will likely require a combination of natural and mechanical ventilation to get your system fully functional.
To improve natural ventilation, open doors, windows, and vents. Air out rooms when the building is empty.
To improve mechanical ventilation, make sure your systems are circulating fresh air instead of polluted or contaminated air. If your system is circulating polluted air, change the location of your outdoor unit and make sure your system has a good filter. When conducting routine maintenance on the building, clean your ducts or vents and inspect for bigger problems.
Do I Need a New Ventilation System?
If you find problems in your system with no quick way to fix them, you may need to replace the whole system. There are several options for ventilation that you can choose from, including smoke vents, power ventilation, gravity ventilation, and louvers. All our vents comply with OSHA requirements and building codes. The type of ventilation you need for your commercial building depends on how you use the building and the climate of the area.
Gravity ventilation, also called natural ventilation, refers to vents that naturally release heat through the roof. Ridge vents fit along the ridge of the building, while round vents can go anywhere on the roof. We offer manual and mechanical options. Manual venting options have no operating or maintenance costs, allowing you to put your money towards other aspects of your business.
If your business involves cooking, welding, or any other process that uses combustion, you’ll need smoke vents. We offer mechanical and drop out smoke vents that are the best in the industry. If your building doesn’t use combustion, but still get stuffy, you might need power ventilation. Power ventilation includes wall fans and roof fans. They force hot air out of the building while occupied.
