A precisely matched room climate is essential not only for people, but likewise for sensitive measurements, as well as in museums and libraries for exhibited objects that must be protected from deterioration. Effective regulation of room climate must be based on highly precise coordination of various obvious factors – in addition to less apparent ones – that are taken by Menerga into consideration as an entirety. These factors include relative humidity, temperature, and the effects of heat sources, as well as external influences such as solar radiation. All these aspects are exactly considered early in the planning phase of a project, in order to enable optimal air conditioning at the very highest level.
The sensitivity of objects stored and displayed above all in libraries and museums explains the requirement for maximum precision in air conditioning. Poorly controlled relative humidity exposes books and valuable display items not only to premature aging but can in extreme cases lead to their destruction by development of mold. During the course of a day within such rooms – and as a result of such factors as constantly varying numbers of guests – room-climate fluctuations must be compensated for as fast and effectively as possible. Intelligent room-climate control systems assure exactly matched temperature and humidity levels.
A widely unnoticed – yet important – side effect of such systems in libraries and museums is the impact of ideal room climate on visitors. If they feel comfortable, this exerts a perhaps unconscious but still crucial effect, on the personal and economic levels.
The associated costs cannot of course be neglected; on the contrary, they can be minimized in two major ways. First, the low energy consumption of Menerga solutions results in lower operational costs. Second, experience has shown that they automatically lead to enhanced performance of staff at work in such rooms. The latter aspect is especially important in the measurement rooms of testing stations. The essential requirements here are to reduce inaccuracies in measurements resulting from the effects of dust, humidity, or drafts of air – and at the same time to enable concentrated and non-fatiguing work. The resulting pleasant and health-enhancing room climate raises productivity and simultaneously reduces staff absenteeism owing to illness.
