A new air handling system installed by ESG Controls at Halifax Swimming Pool has cut energy costs by a quarter, producing savings of £20,000 a year. A key element of the system is a Trend IQ100 intelligent controller, which regulates the pool hall temperature, humidity and fresh air levels.
Built in 1968, the facility consists of a 25m main pool, learner pool and diving area which together cover an area of some 547m2. Previously, ventilation was 100% fresh air; there was no provision for air dehumidification or recirculation, though there was a heat pump which recovered energy from the swimming pool extract air.
