Ensuring Indoor Air Quality for Schools and Universities
Growing minds and bodies need clean air to learn and stay healthy; nowhere is this more evident than in schools. Studies from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) show that indoor air pollution is often many times worse than what is found outdoors with contaminant levels ranging anywhere from two to five times outdoor average — even 100 times higher, in some cases.
School-age children, along with teachers and faculty members, spend many hours in buildings that may literally be making them sick. Respiratory problems such as asthma have been reported in about 1 in 13 children, and air-borne pollutants are well-known to trigger or even intensify symptoms. Other health issues that arise from poor quality air include coughing, eye irritation, fatigue, sneezing, dizziness, and a myriad of other ailments.
The source of these contaminants is often found in the air ducts and HVAC systems of educational facilities. Mold, dust mites, and bacteria can accumulate within the dirt that regularly builds in air ducts, aggravating the symptoms associated with allergies and irritation.
Dirty air systems also impact the often limited budgets of school administrations. A dust-congested HVAC system costs more to run than a clean one, as it is forced to work harder to deliver more air in order to maintain the same temperature levels.
Our clean air products and services can offer the perfect solution for improving indoor air quality (IAQ) in any educational setting. For further information or to request a custom quote for your project, contact us today.
