Leading Dehumidification System Installation in Chicago, IL

While having a dehumidification system in place for your data center, manufacturing plant, or hospitality center is vitally important, it’s even more important to ensure you get the right option to suit your unique situation and business needs. At General Mechanical we are well-versed in and experienced with all dehumidification types, including:

  • DX (direct expansion). Direct expansion dehumidification supplies filtered and dry air into needed spaces within your business. The system revolves around the idea of displacing moisture and introducing clean, safe air.
  • Air to air heat exchange. Air-to-heat is one of the most cost-efficient and reliable options on the market. These systems utilize a refrigerant system to pull in air, cool it, rapidly heat it, and then release it back into your space. The moisture present in drawn-in air is released during the operation and pulled into a hold or hose reservoir to be safely drained away.
  • Dry desiccant. Solid desiccants are a simplistic but effective option useful for many commercial applications. Available even to low-budget businesses, these simple draw-in systems are a very quick and easy way to handle minor humidity issues.
  • Liquid desiccant. Liquid systems are sister to dry ones and sub out the solid desiccant for stable liquids such as lithium chloride salt for additional efficiency.

Optimize Dehumidification with Exhaust Fan Systems

Dehumidification systems are an ideal way to gain more comfort and health within your business, as well as an excellent method of mechanical and product preservation. But pairing these systems with exhaust and ventilation systems is crucial to attaining better efficiency and boosting the system’s effectiveness. At General Mechanical we can design, build, install, and maintain ideal exhaust fan systems that include:

  • Wall mount exhaust fans
  • Roof mount exhaust fans
  • Shutter mount exhaust fans
  • Fresh air supply fans

Industrial Exhaust Fans in the Chicagoland Area

Ensuring that industrial ventilation systems are in working order is important for maintaining your employees’ health and safety, regardless of the type of business you have. Exhaust fans divert dangerous chemicals away from employees and lower heat in the working environment. But, a well-designed ventilation system also protects your financial investment in your business by increasing work time and reducing your utility costs from electrical needs.

At General Mechanical, we provide design, repair, and maintenance services for:

  • Wall mount exhaust fans
  • Roof mount exhaust fans
  • Shutter mount exhaust fans
  • Fresh air supply fans

Commercial Kitchen Ventilation

Commercial kitchens in restaurants, hotels, and schools are a vital area in which to have a functioning exhaust system. With the amount of heat generated by commercial and industrial grade kitchens, in addition to the smoke created by food items that are seared or fried, you must ensure you have a ventilation system that is designed specifically for your space.

Exhaust Systems for Manufacturing Plants

If your employees are working with chemicals, gases, or other hazardous materials, it is crucial that the building’s ventilation and exhaust system is performing at its best. This is a part of your HVAC system that keeps your employees healthy, so repairing it as soon as breakdowns occur and investing in maintenance to prevent breakdowns is in your company’s best interest.
