1 ADVERTORIAL. Costs and problems Take a dive toward with Indoor Pools Indoor pool efficiency with the Air Change PoolPac Plus Indoor Pools are one of the most energy Some typical Swimming Pool problems Air Change's solution was to supply a split intensive building spaces with inherent health Uncomfortable humidity around the pool DX heat pump system. A fully ducted fan coil and safety risks, challenging architects, Condensation on vents/ glass panels/ AC incorporating an air to air heat exchanger was developers, builders and building managers grills / floors etc. installed in the ceiling space to manage the with questions of design, installation, Strong and persistent smell of chlorine quality and temperature of the air. operation and maintenance in which owners (chloramines). must ultimately fund. In addition to the Building degradation and corrosion high operating Costs of any heated pool Mould and mildew growth environment, there is the hidden Costs of Frequent accidents (slipping/ falling) caused building fabric degradation if the moisture in by wet floors the air is allowed to condense.
2 All of these problems have a cost and amenity impact for the building owner's corporation. To achieve the ideal balance between a safe and healthy Indoor environment and Avanti Apartments operating Costs , presents owners with a Avanti apartments, built over a decade complex set of interrelated control and ago, located in Hornsby 25km Norwest management issues. The ideal Indoor of Sydney's CBD includes two towers with environment requires good temperature 198 residential apartments, 45 commercial To heat the pool water, Air Change installed and humidity control but this comes at an spaces, 8 shops, a childcare centre, heated a heat pump in the lower car park. The most increased cost of operation. pool, spa and fully equipped gym. Since innovative aspect of this design is that the two the original construction, Avanti have been units are linked, to ensure the energy from the Most people associate the interior of Indoor struggling with mould, mildew and corrosion exhaust air in the pool room released during Pools with high humidity, stuffy chlorine in a pool space that had inferior ventilation water evaporation is recycled back into the pool smelling air and steamy windows, floors and installed during the original build.
3 This air and water. This system dramatically reduces walls. Water condensation is not only a safety, poor Indoor air quality led to the eventual the heating Costs compared with conventional comfort and health problem but will in the deterioration of the ceiling panels within pool water heating systems. The air to air heat long term cause serious, expensive structural the pool area, and the corrosion of many recovery further reduces the overall running cost damage to the building. Without effective surfaces in the space. by improving the overall system efficiency. dehumidification and ventilation control, there is a risk of mould, corrosion, structural damage Air Change, with its local engineering and The installed equipment has an energy PoolPac Plus and an uncomfortable pool environment. manufacturing team were able to tailor a metering and logging device that tracks energy 100% Outdoor Air Reverse Cycle This does not have to be the case and in a customised turn-key' solution for Avanti consumption.
4 Current indications show an PoolPac Plus Unit correctly designed pool heating system, a good from design, through to installation and annual energy cost reduction of 51%. More controlled environment can be had at the same maintenance. The original brief from Avanti importantly, the pool air environment is healthier cost as heating the pool water. was simple: and more comfortable whilst preserving the Air Change is an Australian manufacturer delivering customised solutions in pool heating, ventilation 1. Provide energy efficient heating for the building fabric and this all occurs at a lower and air conditioning for aquatic centres and residential Pools . Our internationally patented heat pool, both air and water heating cost than before the system upgrade. 2. Eliminate condensation and corrosion issues recovery technology minimises energy consumption and can supply up to 100% fresh air, 3. Improve Indoor air quality within the pool environment As the cost of gas increases on the solving condensation and corrosion issues whilst reducing overall running Costs .
5 Australian East Coast, the Air Change PoolPac Plus system offers an ideal solution Avanti also had the added challenge of to reduce energy running Costs , minimise space restrictions due to the limited available condensation and improve air quality in new plant space.
