Safe Air Equipment You Need for the Summer Heat!

As the Summer season begins, the temperatures are hitting all-time highs, which greatly impacts electrical systems – often, forcing them to overheat and break. If your equipment tends to overheat, then you need to look into these high-quality, explosion proof products from Safe Air Technology. Whether you’re purchasing an explosion proof HVAC system or a Cabinet Cooler, we have the equipment you need to maintain a cool environment throughout the hottest months of the year!

Explosion Proof HVAC System in Baton Rouge

It’s fitting to start with our explosion proof Split Systems because they are the main system for ventilation, heating, and most importantly, air conditioning. In Baton Rouge and other southern areas, the Summer season brings high temperatures with humidity indexes that can negatively influence the air quality of buildings, schools, gymnasiums, and more. This is why it’s crucial to have a high-quality explosion proof HVAC system that properly filters, ventilates, and maintains your air quality. This is especially important for wet and humid environments. To ensure your occupants are in a safe and healthy environment, contact Safe Air Technology for an explosion proof HVAC that is certified for operational performance and compliance to both NEC and IEC codes related to NFPA 70 Article 500 – 505 for Hazardous Environments. 

Exhaust Blowers at Safe Air Technology

Exhaust Blowers have one purpose – to remove hot, toxic, or contaminated fumes from an enclosed area. Exhaust Blowers are absolutely necessary to “exhaust” the toxic fumes away from a worker or operator – they protect the health of welders, machine operators, and industrial employees of all kinds, so they should be prioritized when shopping for equipment. Exhaust Blowers, sometimes called “exhaust fans”, are especially important in the Summer months because the intense heat can contribute to more stale or contaminated air. Exhaust Blowers are great for your lung health and general well-being because they remove pollutant air from the indoors and “exhaust” that contaminated air to the outdoors. If you’re worried about the quality of your air or need to ensure your industrial technicians have a safe working environment, purchase an exhaust blower from Safe Air Technology or call us to discuss your exhaust blower options!

Cabinet Coolers in Baton Rouge, Louisiana

Industrial cabinets and other enclosed areas that host electrical appliances tend to overheat, this is why cabinet coolers are a popular choice for Safe Air Technology customers. Cabinet Coolers are an essential component to the longevity of your electrical equipment and they work by enhancing the natural cooling air flow. Particularly in the hot Summer months, cabinet coolers use an essential fan to keep your equipment working efficiently and properly – and they’re cheaper than many other cooling systems! Contact Safe Air Technology today to get your cabinet cooler. 

Window Units

Lastly, we have window units – a necessary product for apartments, smaller units, or any resident that doesn’t have central air conditioning. Safe Air Technology’s explosion proof Window Units are available in various builds, from standard designs to fully custom designs with capacities ranging from 6,000 to 36,000 BTU/HR, to satisfy your specific HVAC needs. Window Units are essential for cooling air and temperature regulation throughout those muggy summer months. Give us a call to get your explosion proof Window Unit, today.

Why You Need a Humidistat

Humidistat and Thermometer | Safe Air Technology


When the humidity levels indoors reach and stay at an unacceptable range, you risk creating problems in your home or business. Not only do high humidity levels indoors lead to a muggy and uncomfortable environment, it can actually cause problems like peeling paint and wallpapers and mildewing furniture. Let’s not forget that high humidity creates the perfect environment for the growth of bacteria, viruses, fungi, and mold.

Lower humidity levels can be equally destructive. Too little humidity indoors can make the air uncomfortably dry and cause you to experience dry skin, sinus infections, allergies, and even sore throats. Regulating the humidity level indoors isn’t always easy, which is why a humidistat is an excellent investment.

What a Humidistat is and How it Works

A humidistat (also known as a humidistat controller) automatically monitors and maintains the moisture level in the air with a sensing element composed of a flat plate fitted with two metal conductors that cause an electrical resistance based on the amount of humidity in the air. The amplifier then measures the resistance, and based on the resistance measured the humidistat will turn on the humidifier if the air is too dry and turn off the humidifier once the optimal level is achieved. Dehumidifiers and portable humidifiers usually come with an attached humidistat that ensures that you don’t over-dehumidify or humidify the room. 

Thermostat/Humidistat Combo

In whole-house systems, dehumidifiers or humidifiers are connected to the central HVAC system. Humidistats can also be wired into your thermostat to run the air conditioner to regulate the humidity level independently of the temperature. 

Using the thermostat and humidistat combo conveniently helps maintain the desired humidity level without the need to run the HVAC system more than necessary. If the humidity levels are high, the humidistat will continue running the air conditioner until the humidity reaches optimal levels. If the temperature is high, but the humidity is low, the humidistat won’t allow the air conditioner to run.

Why You Need a Cabinet Cooler

Safe Air Technology Cabinet Cooler
When you need to enclose electrical or other components in a cabinet to protect them from dust and debris, you run the risk of them overheating. When your components overheat, they can lose efficacy, part of their lifetimes, or even fail, costing you money in repair costs, lost revenue, or even emergency evacuations. To solve the problem of overheating electrical components, you need a cabinet cooler, which can alleviate cabinet heat without requiring a full air conditioning solution.

How Cabinet Cooling Fans Work

All cooling fans work on the principle of forced convection, which enhances natural convection – the process of heat transferring from one area to another through air movement – with fans or blowers. As cooler outside air is pushed through the system, the heat generated by the electrical equipment within the cabinet is pushed out through the exhaust vent.
A cabinet fan is an economical answer for any industrial enclosure you may have, as long as the environment is not excessively harsh, like an indoor cabinet without exposure to heavy dust or sprayed liquid. More intense environments or cooling needs may necessitate a closed-loop cooling system, like an air to air heat exchanger or enclosure air conditioner, to properly cool the cabinet.

Is Extra Cooling Required?

Not every cabinet on your property will need additional cooling. Natural convection and heat transfer through the cabinet walls might be enough to maintain the equipment at or below its specified maximum operating temperature.
To figure out if you need a cabinet cooler, you’ll need to calculate the total waste heat the equipment in your cabinet produces while operating, or its heat load. Your equipment’s specifications should list its heat load, so check that.
An example of a calculation is this: say you have a VFD with an operating efficiency of 92% at design load. That means that you’ll lose 8% of the total energy used by the drive as heat, since 100% – 92% = 8%. For, say, a 100 horsepower VFD, that works out to 8 hp of waste heat, or 5,965.6 watts. If your cabinet loses less heat than that via convection and conduction, you’ll need a cabinet cooling fan.
