If recent events have taught us anything, it’s that the importance of providing clean, fresh, conditioned air into fitness facilities is critical.
Indoor air quality in a fitness facility is particularly important because of the proximity of patrons as well as their increased rate of respiration and perspiration.
If your facility incorporates a pool or spa, this further increases your indoor air quality challenges by introducing additional humidity and enhanced potential for mold, mildew and airborne contaminants that thrive in humid environments.
By introducing increased levels of fresh outdoor air into the facility stale, potentially pathogen-laden air is exhausted out. By continually changing the air within the fitness facility, you can dramatically reduce the number of pathogens in the air.
Leading agencies such as ASHRAE (American Society of Heating Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers), the WHO (World Health Organization), and REHVA (The Federation of European Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning Associations) have all recommended increased fresh air ventilation to increase the indoor air quality of building spaces.
