How often do I have to change the panels?

How long will it take before I see results?
The amount of time it takes to experience the Greenguard Affect will vary, depending on a number of factors, including the age of your cooling equipment, the volume of contents and the amount of in-and-out traffic. There are, however, some discernible, relatively early signs that the panels are working. Customers have reported:
Fresher smelling coolers/freezer.
Fresher looking produce.
Perceptibly less humidity.
A cessation and eventual evaporation of accumulated ice.
Do the panels work in ambient temperatures?
Yes! In fact, if your facility is located in a part of the country that routinely experiences the kind of humidity that can leave floors so slippery you need to place a wet floor sign at your front door, then you'll be glad to know that Greenguard Moisture and Humidity Control Panels actually work better in ambient temperatures than they do in cooler environments.
Should I remove ice buildup before installing the panels?
Absolutely! Ice acumulated on floors and walls not only forces cooling equipment to work harder, it also represents a serious safety hazard for workers. And yet, even in those cases where customers have opted not to do so, the ice buildup gradually evaporated over time.
Which fruits and vegetables produce ethylene gas?
Ethylene, is the volatile gas, emitted by some produce, that causes it to ripen more rapidly. And while not all fruits and vegetables produce ethylene gas, they may be sensitive to it. That means you should avoid storing fruits and vegetables that release ethylene gas, with those that are ethylene sensitive.

Fortunately, Greenguard Mositure and Humidity Control Panels absorb ethylene gas so that your produce and flora stays fresher longer!
