While maintaining HVAC systems is a year-round thing, it’s important to focus on it more during the back-to-school season. This helps keep a clean, comfortable and healthy learning environment for students and teachers.
In this article, Superior Air discusses the importance of good HVAC in schools.
Maintains Good Indoor Air Quality
Poor indoor air quality leads to health issues and contributes to student absenteeism. Based on a study, airborne bacteria and mold can trigger asthma among children, which causes students to skip classes. To avoid the buildup of dust, germs, bacteria, and mold in the air, contaminants must be diluted and removed. A well-maintained HVAC system prevents the accumulation of airborne particles, ensuring that the students are breathing clean air inside their classrooms.
Manages Temperature and Humidity
These two factors affect the levels of bacteria and mold in a space, which can directly affect a building’s indoor air quality. Additionally, studies show an improvement in the performance of students when the rooms have 40% to 70% humidity levels and temperatures ranging from 68 to 74 degrees.
Ensures Proper Ventilation
One of the purposes of ventilating classrooms and school buildings is to remove or dilute contaminants that build up inside. Since children breathe a greater volume of air than adults, proper ventilation is vital in schools. This will keep them safe from various contaminants that come from indoor air, building materials, cleaning products, and other agents that can be harmful in certain concentrations.
