Following three years of development, the Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Institute has initiated its indoor pool Dehumidifiers Certification Program.
Based on ARI Standard 910, Indoor Pool Dehumidifiers, initiated in 1999 by the Indoor Pool Dehumidifier Product Section, the certification covers factory-made residential, commercial, and industrial pool dehumidifiers.
"ARI certified products are sought worldwide because of the integrity of the certification program," said Reinhold Kittler, chairman of the product section. "Our section's current activities are aimed at enhancing that position and image for our members and those depending on our ARI-certified equipment."
An indoor pool dehumidifier typically consists of one or more factory-made assemblies, which include an indoor cooling-dehumidfying coil, an air reheat coil, compressor(s), and an air-moving device. It may also include a refrigerant condenser pool water heater, an auxiliary refrigerant condenser, the introduction of outdoor air for ventilation, and the discharge of exhaust air, and an air-to-air heat recovery device.
