air conditioning in gym

Our Air Source Heat Pump Air conditioning enables those working out to enjoy the optimum temperature for an efficient workout so they can achieve their best performances at all times.
This is especially important when leisure facilities are used for cardiovascular activities.
The correct system can keep the air at an optimum temperature for exercise and also when just sitting, relaxing and observing.

Risks of Hotter Temperature in Gyms

Installing an air conditioner for temperature control can make for a safer and more comfortable workout environment. Cooler temperatures can allow athletes to train harder without suffering as much from the fatigue and headaches that can come from overexertion in a hot environment.

Clients who work out too hard in high-heat environments can suffer from dehydration and heat exhaustion. Excessive sweating can also cause skin problems such as breakouts and rashes. But maintaining an ideal temperature can improve workouts for all of your members.

Reduce Humidity & Adequate Ventilation

An air conditioner can help regulate humidity by condensing hot, moist air out of the building.

Many air conditioning systems have a “dry mode” which lets you run the AC to reduce humidity in the air without overcooling the environment. The key is to choose a unit that is correctly sized for the space and the amount of work it will have to do.

Taking humidity from the air reduces the stickiness, and physical discomfort people may feel during physical exertion. This results in members staying more comfortable and feeling more satisfied with their workout.

Improves Air Quality for Physical Activity

Nearly every air conditioning system includes air filtration. This means you can actively purify the air in your gym while controlling the temperature.

Air filters can remove dust particles, pollen, pet fur, mites, and bacteria, leading to a healthier working environment for your staff and a cleaner workout space for your members.

Duty of Care Towards Clients

While there is no law that requires air conditioning in gyms, there is a sense of duty of care towards your clients. The guidelines set out by Sport England do give us an idea of what the optimum temperature is for engaging in physical activity.

Provided by Sport England, tailored to fitness and exercise spaces:

  • Fitness Gym – 16°C to 18°C (60°F to 64°F) in the summer, with “comfort cooling” as needed. 
  • Studios – 18°C (64°F), with a slight summer rise acceptable. 

Keeping Your Gym Perfectly Regulated at a Low Cost

Heat pumps are recognised to be one of the most efficient forms of heating and cooling available. They are more efficient than some other forms of heating because heat pumps do not create heat; they just move it from one place to another. For example, the output of an efficient 10 EER* heat pump is triple that of an electric heater. This will allow you to perfectly heat your gym in winter and cool your gym in summer, keeping your clients at the optimum temperature all year round.

I can unconditionally recommend Inn-House Technology Ltd as a thoroughly excellent provider of all aspects of domestic air conditioning from initial contact, design development, through detailed site work to contract administration and on to maintenance. I speak as a hard-bitten Chartered Engineer and project manager who has probably seen it all; but Inn-House Technology has restored my faith that there is a British company which does it right to time, cost and quality. The initial site visit was by an experienced technician who has turned his hand to sales and was followed up by a further detailed visit with a staff specialist because the 4-unit multi-split installation is in a high-quality residence so that pipe concealment and silence in operation are crucial – and achieved. The two-man team left home at 0555 to arrive exactly on time for 3 consecutive days fully supplied with all the tools and plant required from their preferred but not exclusive partner supplier – Fujitsu. All indoor debris from numerous drillings was cleaned up as soon as it arose causing negligible dust- even embroidered curtains were kept in place. No shoes were worn indoors. The quality and fit of the pipework, cabling and trunking was exemplary and the indoor units were positioned exactly as specified. Outside, the wall penetrations and resealing of this Passivhaus were accurate and the heat pump connections neatly concealed by a black trunking beside a downpipe. The two installers, Jim and Sam, were professional, knowledgeable, personable, strong, agile and 100% committed to my job – not once stopping for lunch. The back-office handling of the sales, contract, procurement, invoicing and maintenance were each impeccable and the team are clearly loyal to their company which has strong systems to give quick response and confidence to the customer. The whole installation experience was an exemplar of how to run a company well and I have no hesitation at all in recommending Inn-House Technology.

Excellent and Faultless Experience with our Air Con Install. We reached out to I-HT among other Installers in the area, within a couple of hours they had made contact and arranged to visit to provide a quote within the same day. The quote was sent quickly and competitively priced. Lee who visited was very friendly and helpful and provided a good insight into what could be done and how with regards to our property. On install day we had 2 of their team pop out to complete the install and I can't explain enough how polite, friendly and considerate they were. Not only this but they were also very tidy and cleaned up behind them at every step. The day after I also had a follow up call from the office to make sure we were happy. overall 10/10 and can't believe how simple and perfect the install went. Thank you so much and look forward to recommending them to everyone in the future!
