The Stokes Family YMCA is the second YMCA in the Northwest North Carolina family to install the Paddock Evacuator; the first being The Jerry Long YMCA. The issues with air quality were compounded by an ineffective HVAC system. Humidity levels were out of control and there was moisture all over the place. The natatorium was uncomfortable for patrons and staff.
When the time came to replace the HVAC system, the YMCA chose to include the Evacuator in the project for two reasons. 1) Improve the member experience by improving the air quality, and 2) Protect their new investment in the HVAC system. The Evacuator addresses both of those concerns simultaneously, as it removes chloramines from the space, preventing corrosive air recirculation.
