Retail & Supermarkets

Retail & Supermarkets

With the tremendous amount of energy supermarkets consume and the growing concern for indoor air quality, it has become a priority to precisely control temperature and humidity. Excess amounts of humid air entering a retail space can create an uncomfortable store environment.

Retail and Supermarket Industry Dehumidification

Retail stores and supermarkets use an enormous amount of energy everyday controlling their stores’ temperature and climate. Reducing the amount of humidity in the air will substantially drop operating costs and create a more pleasant store environment. These industries have realized higher sales and lower operating costs when installing a more efficient, high performing dehumidification system that creates a comfortable, healthy environment to work and shop in.

Climate Control for Retail Facilities

The following indoor retail and supermarket facilities benefit from dehumidification:

  • Supermarkets
  • Distribution centers
  • Malls
  • Retail stores
  • Convenience stores
  • Department stores
  • Big box stores
  • Grocery stores
  • Shopping centers

Retail & Supermarket Applications that Require Dehumidification

Some of the common applications that require humidity control include:

  • Refrigerated case doors
  • Frozen food packaging
  • Storage areas
  • Display cases

Effects of Uncontrolled Humidity

Outdoor air is laden with moisture. If the moisture is not addressed it can lead to high space humidity levels, mold issues, and a damp uncomfortable environment. Not only does humid air make consumers and employees feel cold and clammy, but it causes the store’s HVAC systems to work harder in order to reach ideal temperatures and results in higher energy bills.

Solutions for the Retail & Supermarket Industry

Munters dedicated outdoor air systems (DOAS) utilize energy recovery and humidity control technology to maintain necessary conditions to meet the needs of retailers in varying climates all over the world. These systems cool and dehumidify 100% outdoor air using one-third the energy of conventional DX systems. Munters’ dehumidification systems help supermarkets hold their store at 40- 45% RH which results in at least 10-15% savings in the refrigerated case energy while maintaining superior product display and quality. While conventional DX HVAC systems struggle to meet this condition, desiccant systems cost effectively maintain these conditions and reduce the total store energy bill. Munters also follows ASHRAE standards, which require a minimum of 15 cfm per person of outdoor air to provide proper indoor air quality. Munters DOAS for retail create a more comfortable environment for customers and employees and reduces HVAC operating costs by lowering the temperature setting.

Benefits of Humidity Control

Some of the main benefits of controlling the humidity level in supermarkets and retail stores include:

  • Improve IAQ
  • Prevent liabilities
  • Reduce operating costs
  • Reduce energy consumption
  • Improve customer & employee comfort

Advantages with Munters

With more than 25 years of experience serving the supermarket and retail industry and over 3,000 installations, Munters offers a variety of cooling, dehumidification, and energy recovery systems in various sizes and configurations to meet building needs. By implementing a more efficient, high performing HVAC system, stores will enjoy higher sales and lower operating costs, while creating a better experience for their customers and employees.
