If recent events have taught us anything, it’s that the importance of providing clean, fresh, conditioned air into classrooms is critical.
Infection control was likely not considered a priority when the HVAC systems in most schools were designed. However, when properly configured with the correct amount of outdoor air, it can lead to significant reductions in the spread of airborne pathogens.
By introducing increased levels of fresh outdoor air into the school stale, potentially pathogen-laden air is exhausted out. By continually changing the air withing the school, the Addison DOAS system can dramatically reduce the number of pathogens in the air.
Leading agencies such as ASHRAE (American Society of Heating Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers), the WHO (World Health Organization), and REHVA (The Federation of European Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning Associations) have all recommended increased fresh air ventilation to increase the indoor air quality of building spaces.
