Thousands of hotels with indoor pools built over the last 30+ years have reached the stage of retrofitting or replacing their pool dehumidifiers that have reached the end of their life cycle. Many systems fell short of their operating lifespan due to poor pool chemistry; systems not designed or sized properly, poorly installed, lack of negative pressure, or poorly designed air delivery/duct systems. Many pool systems are no longer energy efficient and operating costs are high. For any hotel manager, it is an extremely challenging process to cut operating and energy costs with indoor pools. However, today's technology in hotel pool dehumidifiers offers significant energy costs reduction, and many offer a wide range of improvement options over what was available even 5-10 years ago.
When retrofitting your hotel, there are several significant areas to review to ensure that your new pool dehumidifier will provide all of the updated "GREEN" technology, energy recovery, and benefits that support a longer life span and a healthy, stable pool room environment.
DXair has been designing and manufacturing indoor pool dehumidification systems for all types of natatoriums, water parks, aquatic facilities, homes, hotels, retirement centers, health clubs, pet centers, and more since 1987.
As a leader in the industy, DXair builds humidity control systems that are functional, energy efficient, and have the smallest eco-footprint. DXair is proud to offer a "green" solution to dehumidification systems, which substantially reduces the space and energy needed to control humidity in an indoor pool environment. DXair also provides design, engineering, consulting and manufacturing services for residential indoor pools and commercial indoor swimming pools.
Our staff has a combined 50+ year’s mechanical design and building experience in the indoor swimming pool arena. Whether you are the architect, a mechanical contractor, engineering firm, general contractor, or the owner, we deliver expertise on both sides of the equation—from the unique design to fit your residential or commercial project to the preventative measures that keep your indoor pool working like the day you put it in. Founded by one of the most respected and highly regarded authorities in this industry, DX Air’s goals are to solve the unique challenges with upgraded and innovative technology. This experience allows us to create highly energy efficient pool dehumidification systems, using a more environmentally conscious “Green” design with our Reduced Refrigerant Management Systems and to ensure each project meets all ASHRAE Guidelines for indoor pools while maximizing comfort at the lowest cost
At DXair, our engineering and consulting staff focuses on providing cost effective building solutions and equipment solutions for controlling humidity in an indoor pool environment. We partner with each client on every aspect of the building envelope design, materials utilized in the pool room, and the preventive measures that must be taken throughout the construction stages. Secondly, our expertise in manufacturing pool dehumidification systems offers our clients extensive resources into technology that far surpasses other companies’ design and applications while continuing to exceed the ASHRAE Guidelines for indoor pools.
Twenty years ago, humidity control for an indoor swimming pool was to bring in outside air while pushing the warm humid air outside with large exhaust fans. This process only worked effectively when the outside air temperature was cool and dry enough to allow for humidity control. This type of system is not only ineffective, but it is the most expensive to operate in a pool enclosure because it cannot consistently maintain the required 50-60% RH humidity levels. When compared to conventional ventilation or "waste ventilation" systems, recycling and dehumidifying pool enclosure air with a mechanical dehumidifier can save 50-75% on energy costs, maintain the 50-60% RH required by ASHRAE, and provide 100% room heating, air conditioning and pool heating.
