Commercial Make up Air

Make Up Air Units (aka MUA)

These units are designed to work together with exhaust fans. They bring outside air into a building to replace the air that is being pulled out of the building by the exhaust fan. The Make up air unit also heats or cools the fresh air that is coming into the building. These units are commonly found in commercial kitchens, underground parkades, automotive or manufacturing paint booths; wherever a lot of air is being pulled out of the space. 

Another common place that make up air units are found is in commercial apartment buildings or condos. These provide a slightly different role, as they are put in place to provide positive pressure in the hallways as a safety precaution in case of a fire. By keeping the hallways pressurized in the event of a fire smoke will, in theory, be kept in the suite where the fire originates and provide safe passage so people will be able to exit the building.  

Airtika technicians are able to troubleshoot these units, make repairs and replace when necessary. To keep your mechanical equipment running efficiently we offer preventative maintenance to our commercial clients.
