Residents at OMNI Senior Living Can Enjoy Ideal Pool Conditions All Year Long Thanks to Jacco and AAON
OMNI Senior Living in Seven Hills, Ohio, has a natatorium that residents
can enjoy year-round. To be at its most comfortable for residents while also operating cost and energy efficiently, OMNI needed Jacco's expertise.
The natatorium utilizes a pool-style AAON unit to maintain temperature and provide dehumidification for the pool space. Jacco was able to implement a sequence that promotes energy savings by using outside air to dehumidify the space instead of running the compressors in wint
er. The solution also provides a more cost-effective upfront cost because the unit no longer needs to be upsized to maintain 50% RH in the winter months when there is a call for mechanical dehumidification. With the sequence Jacco provided, they were able to modulate the OA damper to maintain the space's dew point below design and gas heat to maintain space occupant comfort.
Pool Unit Simple Sequence:
Unit and supply and exhaust fans run continuously.
Summer space RH will be based on60%.
Outside air damper opens to minimumposition.
When return humidistat calls for dehumidification, compressor(s) maintain dew point.
Return temperature sensor modulates hot gas reheat to maintain space temperature.
Winter space RH will be based on 50%.
Summer/winter switchover is based on outside air temperature and humidity.
When return humidistat calls for dehumidification, outside air opens to allow more air across sensible heat wheel to maintain a mixed air dew point.Return air dampers modulate with OA dampers to maintain a balanced airflow across the heatwheel.
