“There is a night and day difference in the building. The building is comfortable without having to turn on the air conditioning, even in the warmest summer months! I know my airplane is well protected for the future.”
– Mike Everson, Morey Airport – Middleton, WI

Molds thrive in high humidity conditions. When a space is unoccupied, you will have less ventilation and more moisture build-up making the space more susceptible to mold and mildew growth. Running a high capacity dehumidifier while the building is unoccupied will protect against excess moisture which can damage electronic instruments, upholstery, warp wood flooring and cabinets as well as stain surfaces.

If you do air condition, you can supplement it with a dedicated dehumidifier which can allow for the same comfort level and protection at a few degrees warmer temperature, saving you money and energy. When you are not occupying the space you can keep dehumidifying to protect, without having to over cool the space.

Cleary Building Corp. has partnered with Aprilaire to enhance the quality of the air in our pre-engineered buildings. Along with an independent Air Quality testing professional, we tested three buildings under a variety of conditions and configurations and concluded that the Aprilaire high-capacity dehumidifier was very effective at removing excess humidity.

Humidity’s Damaging Effects

The deserts of the U.S. Southwest have become one of the top destinations for airliner storage because of the dry climate that helps preserve planes. Planes deteriorate quickly in high humidity*.

Humidity’s Health Risks

Mold & Allergies Multiply:

Poor indoor air quality is among the top five environmental risks to public health according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Excess humidity encourages the growth of harmful particles, including bacteria, viruses, fungi, mites and mold – all of which are linked with asthma, allergies and other sinus problems.

These dangerous microbiological agents can harm a person’s respiratory system, especially for those who suffer from asthma and allergies. Mold, mildew, dust mites and bacteria thrive in damp environments, covering surfaces and rapidly spreading through the air.

According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA), mold and mildew are fungi whose spores are spread by air flow indoors.

Many of these spores are released and continue to flourish when humidity is high and can cause severe allergy symptoms.

Aprilaire Dehumidifiers are powerful enough to combat moisture problems throughout your home or building.

They can removes excess moisture from the air each day so that you and your family can say goodbye to bothersome allergies and unwelcome microscopic critters while protecting your home or building.
