Controlling the humidity in your indoor pool or spa room is a unique challenge. These rooms are naturally humidified as you heat the water in your pool or spa to a comfortable temperature. This process often creates too much humidity in the air, which can lead to mold and mildew infestations, structural damage, uncomfortable air quality, and even health issues for you, your staff, and your patrons. Compounding the problem, when the heated water evaporates into the air, chemicals such as chlorine and disinfectants used to treat the water materialize as condensation. These chemicals may cause interior damage to objects and fixtures inside your space, prompting costly ongoing repairs. Using a dehumidifier designed for an indoor pool or spa room stabilizes your pool environment and protects the facility. Below are our most recommended dehumidifiers for indoor pool and spa rooms.
The process of dehumidification involves moisture-laden air being drawn into a dehumidifier where the air passes across a refrigerated coil. The air is rapidly cooled below its dew point, condensing the water vapor and recovering its latent heat energy for re-use. The cooled air is then passed across the condenser where it is reheated and returned to the served area at the required lower relative humidity.
When you’re calculating the size of the dehumidifier you need for your pool, there are several factors to consider:
