In order to increase energy efficiency, modern buildings are constructed to be increasingly air-tight. However, the EPA has found that air from indoor industrial spaces can be 2 to 5 times more polluted than outdoor air. When one considers that people will spend an average of 90% of their time indoors, it's vital to improve the quality of the air everyone is breathing.
The Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) of a building can have potentially harmful, implications for occupants that live, work, or study there every day. IAQ is a measurement of the amount of undesirable substances in the air that can have adverse health effects such as Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC), carbon monoxide, natural gas, mold, and bacteria. The harmful effects that can result from poor IAQ include:

Along with temperature and cleanliness, an often-overlooked aspect of air comfort in a space is humidity. Inadequate water content in the air can lead to seasonal discomforts and damage to property.
The J-Series line of humidifiers by Carnes combats low humidity by injecting pure steam into an air-handling system, or directly into a space with an optional blower-pack. Electrically generating steam from a local water source quickly raises the humidity in a space to more comfortable levels and protects personnel and property from the negative effects of dehydrated air. Our touch-screen interface allows for local control of scheduling and outputs, and optional networking attachments let customers monitor and control their system from a distance.
