Specified Air Solutions (SAS) recently announced the formation of two new divisions, Dehumidified Air Solutions (DAS) and Dehumidified Air Services (DASV). SAS acquired the three indoor pool mechanical dehumidification brands of Dectron®, PoolPak®, and Seresco® in the last 18 months and now operates them under DAS.

While Dectron, PoolPak and Seresco will continue to operate as three distinct brands, each going to market through their separate sales representative networks, the company says all three brands will benefit from the resources, scale, and expertise that DAS brings to the marketplace.

“With the combined strength, shared services, and market resources of the dehumidifier industry’s top three brands, DAS is positioned to deliver trouble-free, state-of-the-art, indoor pool dehumidification systems and services that are unprecedented in the HVAC industry,” said Charley Brown, CEO and president of SAS. 

The formation of DAS brings, according to Brown, more than 85 years of combined expertise in dehumidification to solve the challenges associated with natatorium construction and retrofit design.

Another ongoing challenge of the dehumidification industry has been post sale service, maintenance, and support. DASV aims to solves this issue by combining and expanding the service and technical support teams of all three dehumidifier brands to create a single national network of trained, factory-direct service personnel capable of servicing every region of the country from a local office. DASV will support and augment the existing service divisions of DAS’s authorized manufacturer representatives.

DASV will also expand the use of its proprietary WebSentry® Internet monitoring control systems to further differentiate the DAS brands and amplify their service and remote troubleshooting capabilities. The company says WebSentry’s ability to remotely monitor, analyze, and report on over 100 critical dehumidifier functions in real-time, as well as sending trouble alerts that prevent major problems from occurring, is an industry game-changer. WebSentry also gives DASV the capability to fine tune and analyze dehumidifier performance remotely, and adjust parameters to ensure optimal equipment performance without the need for an in-person service visit.
