Proper humidification for retail needs to be consistent, regulated and carefully controlled to ensure the health and comfort of people as well as for the protection of products and materials.
The key to a successful retail operation isn’t just about what is sold – it is also about the experience customers have when shopping in store. This includes the indoor air conditions they are experiencing. Proper humidification for retail needs to be consistent, regulated and carefully controlled to ensure the health and comfort of people as well as for the protection of products and materials.
Inventory Quality Control
Many products in retail spaces are sensitive to low or high relative humidity (RH) levels, such as guitars, wooden furnishings, string instruments and electronics. Organic materials such as woods are easily susceptible to warping, cracking and other forms of damage. With retail relying on quality control to ensure that products move off of shelves and into the hands of consumers, it is imperative that a humidification system is installed to provide consistently humidified air that meets the required RH levels for sensitive products and materials.
Enhanced Customer Satisfaction
Those who visit retail spaces will not stay long if they are forced to shop and browse in uncomfortable, unhealthy and fluctuating indoor conditions. Humidification systems by Nortec offer humidification solutions that has been designed for hygienic operation and to provide optimal comfort to those in humidification fed spaces. ESD and health risks are reduced, the latter benefiting from well-maintained RH levels which help to prevent bacteria and particles from remaining airborne and spreading. Dryness, irritation and discomfort experienced by potentially low or high RH levels can be mitigated with proper, consistent humidity control. In short, this means customers will spend longer amounts of time – and potentially more money – in a comfortable and well-humidified retail space.
Employee Performance Increase
Customers aren’t the only ones who benefit from a retail space that has regulated humidification. Employees will be healthier and will less frequently contract contagious illnesses such as influenza, which helps to reduce absenteeism, improve focus on the job and ensure greater workplace efficiency and performance.
