The heating and cooling systems integrated into your stadium will shape the experiences of players, fans and staff. Although an HVAC system can be included in the construction of your stadium, its capabilities may diminish over time.
As air conditioning, heating, ventilation and building service compliance experts, we have raised the bar for stadium HVAC installations. We provide quality products, installation help and the aftercare stadium clients need.
Having upgraded the systems of iconic stadiums across the country, we know how to help clients achieve effective and efficient heating, cooling and ventilation solutions. Here we take a closer look at just five of the reasons you should upgrade your stadium HVAC system.
1. Improved comfort control
Providing a comfortable experience for all within your stadium is of the utmost importance. This objective means striking the right balance when it comes to cooling, heating and ventilation. Your HVAC system is central to this.
Whilst aging, out of date systems will have limited comfort control capabilities, newer technology offers variable speed and modulating features so every aspect can be fine-tuned. In addition to maintaining a more accurate, constant temperature, modern day HVAC systems ensure superior humidity control.
2. Better air flow and quality
The presence of air pollution is something of a hot topic at the moment. This recent study for example analysed the impact of air pollution in and around the stadiums of Manchester City and Manchester United Football Clubs. Its findings revealed that air pollution could actually be inhibiting player performance.
Spare the Air offers a vital insight into the impact of air pollution on human health:
“Even healthy people can experience health impacts from polluted air including respiratory irritation or breathing difficulties during exercise or outdoor activities. Your actual risk of adverse effects depends on your current health status, the pollutant type and concentration, and the length of your exposure to the polluted air. High air pollution levels can cause immediate health problems including:
- Aggravated cardiovascular and respiratory illness.
- Added stress to heart and lungs, which must work harder to supply the body with oxygen.
- Damaged cells in the respiratory system.”
Air pollution is damaging to the environment too, but your HVAC system should improve the air flow and quality both within and around your stadium. A newly installed, fully maintained HVAC system will remove air pollutants and offer your fans, players and staff members cleaner, healthier air.
3. Quieter operation
The most up-to-date HVAC technology means great cooling, heating and ventilation doesn’t have to be accompanied by tons of noise pollution. Using high-tech, sound absorbing materials, modern HVAC systems keep operating noise to a minimum.
4. Lower environmental impact
High efficiency comes as standard across all of the HVAC systems we design and fit. Extensive research has gone into how the modern day stadia can leave smaller carbon footprints. Your HVAC system choice is integral to ensuring the sustainability of your stadium.
5. Longer system lifespan
New HVAC systems provide a longer operating lifespan than older models, particularly when maintenance is undertaken on a regular basis. Maintenance is fundamental to both system operation and legal compliance, and makes the prospect of emergency HVAC repair much less likely.
Knowing the right time to upgrade is just as important as deciding the details of the initial installation. If your current system is not helping you unlock the benefits mentioned above, then it may be time for a bespoke HVAC fit-out. Contact our HVAC specialists today to get started.
