While we are concerned about making our homes cooler, making the workplaces cool especially places like factories is a matter equally important. A factory with a bad temperature will create problems not only for the workers but will also add to damaging the installed equipment and the manufactured products. With a constant operation and a constant release of heat, the machinery gets heated and this heat heats up the factory floor as well. The high temperature could be bearable in winters or under normal climate but this certainly goes beyond bearable in summers. Today, we are sharing some smart and cost-effective tips for maintaining a desirable temperature in factories and actively combating heated factory floor.


- Door & Windows - Make use of this blessing 

Every factory has its own requirements. While many factories are bound to work in a sealed environment, there are many others that are not bound by such limitations. In such factories, the simplest of all ways to cool the floor and the overall environment is to let the doors and windows open. Doing so at the right time and with the right strategies will expel a lot of heat resulting in a cooler environment.

- The wonder of HVLS fans 

The high volume - low-speed fans are larger than ordinary fans and follow the principle of high volume with low speed. As they operate, they help break the hot-spots and also create an effective and significant temperature difference of 7%. While these fans could be stand alone, they can also operate in tandem with the HVAC system.

- HRV system 

A heat recovery system is one of the best investments that can be made in order to maintain a desirable environment on the factory floor. Since this system will run to expel the heat and continue introducing fresh air in the indoor, the heat will not accumulate on the floor not causing any hot spots.

- Choosing between Central Cooling or Evaporative Cooling 

Here's a choice you have to make carefully. Evaporative cooling is a wonderful and compatible choice for low humidity climates as this creates a cooling effect while also lifts the humidity level. However, in highly humid climates, evaporative cooling is not a good idea. In that case, Central Cooling works best. In case of severe conditions, a combination of HVLS fans can be used, as mentioned above.

- Sealing and zoning in the factory floor 

We understand that not the entire building needs the same temperature. It is evident that offices and factory space have different temperature requirements but even in the factory space, not all units have the same temperature requirements. Overall overheating of the factory floor can negatively affect some units. A smarter choice, in this case, is incorporating a zoning system so that the units needing extra cooler temperature can be kept accordingly.
But as the desired temperature requirements are created and the needed equipment is installed, make sure that the factory floor is also properly sealed so that the cooling does not escape and the system does not have to run constantly.

Does your factory incorporate ways to cool the factory floor? If yes, how? And how effective does it prove to be?
