Installing or upgrading exhaust fans within commercial businesses has become more crucial during the COVID-19 pandemic. These fans protect the health and safety of employees and customers.
An industrial exhaust fan provides air circulation. It comes in a range of flow capacities and can be sized by the professionals at A1Kelowna Heating and Cooling for any property from a restaurant kitchen to a large warehouse or farm.
How do they operate?
The fan has an operating motor that pulls a rotating rotor and this creates centrifugal suction. The force draws up air from the room and pushes it out into ducts or directly to the outside of the building. An industrial exhaust fan helps to move hot, dry air that’s inside. Concurrently, it brings oxygenated air into the building. It may reduce bacteria and viruses that breed in stale air. Combine it with a cooling pad, and it can move the moisture that gets formed as water vapour into the air. Where dangerous fumes are produced, an industrial exhaust fan is a necessity in the workplace.
Typically you’ll find the industrial exhaust fan is mounted on a rooftop or other outside open space. Given that an industrial fan is integral to the health and safety of your workforce, it is in your best interests to keep it well maintained and watch for any of these issues:
- the industrial fan slows down because of a residue build-up inside the fan.
- Poor and inefficient air performance
- Loud and irritating noises
- Any shaking or vibrations
- Grinding or scraping sounds
- Overheating of the system
