Everyone in Southern California knows that this summer has been hot and humid but NOW is the time to make sure your humidifiers are in good working order. Soon the Santa Ana’s will be blowin’ offshore winds that are very hot and very dry requiring maximum output from your humidifiers. The photo above was actually taken in the late morning last October on a San Diego roof as the temperature was approaching 110 degrees in the shade. Roof temperatures can climb to 120 degrees during the Santa Ana’s.
Refer to your manufacturer’s O&M manuals and follow their maintenance guidelines. It would be a good idea to observe your humidifiers fill with water, fully energize and drain to ensure operational readiness. Your local mechanical contractor can perform a complete preventative maintenance check if your facility staff is occupied with other duties.
Rooftop humidifiers are common in Southern California as is other mechanical equipment. Pure Humidifier Company provides listed factory weather enclosures for all outdoor applications. Pure Humidifier enclosures have been engineered with proper ventilation methods to protect the electronics from the roof temperatures, solar and electrical loads during maximum operation. Pure Humidifier’s equipment design also protects their electronics from the heavy marine layers experienced during the idle times in spring and summer.
