Commercial swimming pools, such as those found in Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA) facilities, serve as an excellent space to exercise and play. However, the high moisture levels often found in these areas necessitate the use of specialized dehumidification equipment to prevent excessive humidity, temperature levels, and mold development. By employing commercial dehumidification equipment, facility owners and managers can better stick to the strict air temperature, humidity, and quality standards required of their facilities.
Humidity and Moisture in YMCA Facilities
YMCAs are family centers with a strong focus on providing safe places for youth. These community hubs offer family swim time, competitive diving teams, and swimming lessons for people of all ages, including children with special needs.
As these spaces are frequented by dozens—if not hundreds—of people every day, it is imperative that they maintain safe air quality levels. The high moisture and humidity levels that tend to build up around pools and exercise spaces can significantly impact the quality of the air.
Benefits of Dehumidifiers in YMCA
In YMCAs, dehumidification equipment helps to remove the excess moisture that is often found in the pool rooms and workout areas. As these locations generally have high moisture to room volume contents, they require the use of specialty dehumidifiers known as low-volume CFM commercial dehumidifiers. This specialty equipment is designed to deal with the excessive amounts of moisture in the air while limiting changes in the air.
In addition to eliminating moisture buildup in the air, dehumidifiers provide several other advantages not afforded by typical climate control systems. For example, they prevent the problems that come with damp air, such as the formation of mildew and mold. Additionally, they reduce the risk of internal equipment and structures corroding, which helps preserve the integrity of the building and exercise equipment.
Other functions that dehumidifiers can serve in YMCAs include:
- Humidity control
- Temperature control
- Indoor pool cooling/heating
