The structure of the school is a particular problem for designers and developers of ventilation systems. For classrooms, gyms, cloakrooms, canteens, and auditoriums with different needs, the structure of most schools is diverse. Many schools offer photography courses and therefore involve pollution of darkrooms. Maintaining indoor air quality in physical and biological laboratories is a particular challenge.
Air quality is measured by several factors, including temperature, humidity, the concentration of dust and gaseous pollutants. It has been proven in educational facilities that poor indoor air quality is counterproductive to health and can lead to uncomfortable breathing and even acute or chronic illness. When classrooms control air quality and avoid excessive pollutants, the learning environment also improves.
Every school day, 51 million people, one-fifth of the entire U.S. population, study and play in schools. There are 110,000 schools in 15,000 regions in the United States, more than 2 million teachers, 126,000 administrative staff and 600,000 logistics staff. By providing good indoor air quality, we can:
Reduce absenteeism for students and teaching staff
Mitigate building degradation and improve energy efficiency
Reduce external air ventilation requirements
Preventing results due to poor indoor air quality
lower the cost
Most importantly, we can save investment in the future
