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.
However, supermarkets present one of the most complex applications for heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems. Supermarkets require tighter humidity control to prevent frost buildup in the refrigerated display cases. When frost buildup occurs, this requires the display case to defrost frequently which warms up the refrigerated food products and reduces their shelf life. Display cases also spill cold air into aisles of the supermarket which can create a cold environment, thereby limiting the amount of time a shopper spends in the store. Therefore, it becomes critical to lower the humidity in the space while maintaining a comfortable temperature.
