The subject of indoor air quality has been discussed in our industry since the late 1970’s. Over the years, conflicting or misleading information has been provided in regard to indoor air quality. For instance, people have been lead to believe if they have dehumidification in their building, this will handle their indoor air quality. This statement is very misleading. The only thing that can remedy poor indoor air quality is the exchange and introduction of fresh air into the enclosed environment. Most, but not all, of the dehumidifiers produced today have fresh air makeup designed into them. We recommend that ice arenas regularly service and test their ventilation systems, propane, oil or natural gas hot water heaters, space heaters, etc by a certified HVAC technician. The only way to ensure indoor air quality is by properly and thoroughly testing your facility indoor air quality on a regular basis. We have found that the state of Massachusetts has one of the best testing and compliance procedures in our industry. The United States Ice Rink Association has compiled important reference material regarding air quality in ice rinks which we encourage you to review.
