Natatoriums, The Inside Story

Journal

Competition and exercise pool spaces are more likely to be maintained at temperatures around 82°F (28°C), or lower. This is driven by the recommendation (2003 ASHRAE Handbook - HVAC Applications, pp. 4.6 - 4.8) to keep the air temperature about 2°F (1°C) above the water temperature to help reduce evaporation from the pool and improve the comfort of bathers exiting the pool. This will be discussed later. Although residential space conditions can vary, it is important for the designer to convince the pool owner not to maintain the space conditions at normal comfort levels because some people want to use their indoor pools as places to have parties. If abnormal natatorium conditions are required, the designer needs to know what the real conditions will be for proper dehumidifi cation equipment selection. Since no one wants to swim in 73°F (23°C) water, the pool evaporation rate will increase dramatically as a result of the increased vapor pressure differential between the warmer pool water and the colder air.

ASHRAE Technology Award: 43% Energy Savings

Journal

A nearly 30-year-old condominium complex near Montreal wanted to reduce its largest monthly expense, which was its electricity bill. So, the Les Verrières sur le Fleuve complex decided to optimize its mechanical systems in the public spaces, which saved 43% of the total energy consumption. This article discusses improvements made to the domestic water booster pump, the exhaust and makeup air ventilation system, the cooling towers, the indoor swimming pool ventilation system, the outdoor swimming pool water heating system as well as the ventilation of the interior garages.

Ventilation Requirements for Indoor Pools

Journal

How much outdoor air is required to provide a healthy, durable Indoor pool environment? The authors describe the factors to consider and show why Standard 62.1-2016’s minimum ventilation rates may not always produce a facility with acceptable air quality. They also share a methodology that augments the standard’s ventilation rates.
