A Dutch swimming pool changed the air distribution system to textile ducting to save energy
At Zwembad De Viergang te Pijnacker, a swimming pool in Holland, they changed from steel ducting to textile ducting and the results were quite remarkable. Other than an improved indoor air quality they were able to reduce the air volume which meant energy savings of up to 25%.
More stable temperature
In the old steel based ventilation system the temperature at 1.800 mm above floor level had a variation from 27,5 °C till 30,5 °C during 24 hours. In the new textile based ventilation system the temperature at 1.800 mm above floor level has a variation of less than 0,5 °C during 24 hours.
Expected energy savings of 25%
By switching over to the new textile based ventilation system the pool is running with only 2/3 of the air volume. Consequently, the consultant expects that Zwembad De Viergang te Pijnacker will save up to 25% on their gas consumption, ie. app. EUR 40.000 per year.
