What should the target relative humidity be in buildings?
Does DriWay Technologies eliminate condensation on the wall or is it removing the relative humidity in the air?
DriWay Technologies reduces wall condensation both by dehydrating them as well as by eliminating the contribution to relative humidity in the air that was being caused by moisture. DriWay Technologies directly prevents water from rising in the walls to basement and ground floor environments and consequently, reduces the condensation and humidity in the air.
Which product is right for each building?
Should the product be installed in the center of the area when installing?
The installation process and positioning of the devices is subject to an analysis of the environment and varies depending on the evaluation of our trained installation specialists. According to the nature and sources of the humidity, building layout and potential frequency interference, we design a custom solution and install one or multiple devices to cover the footprint area of the building. These may include several smaller devices or single, more powerful ones which cover different areas.
What happens if humid air comes in from outside, does the product work even in this case?
Humidity is often countered by the use of HVAC systems which incur electricity, operation and maintenance costs. How does DriWay compare in terms of costs?
DriWay Technologies dehydration devices do not use electricity to operate, nor require operational maintenance. The return on investment varies depending on the client’s electrical and operational expenses as well as losses due to damages. As part of our commercial services we work with clients to develop individualized ROI calculations versus their current solutions. If they are using air conditioning exclusively to combat humidity caused by invasive moisture, the cost differential is very high in comparison.
What is the life cycle of the product?
As long as it used to specifications, it will work indefinitely.
