Ventilation in Schools
Our children are not being exposed to a clean, healthy school environment. With 53 million school children and 120,000 schools in the United States, at least 50% of these schools have Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) problems. In fact, school air is one of the dirtiest.
Unfortunately, schools cannot keep up with the increase in student population, aging buildings, restricted operational budgets, and growing energy bills. Further, taxpayers are overspending $6 billion on energy annually, which could be put to better use hiring 30,000 new teachers or obtaining 40 million new textbooks.
These unnecessary health risks and overspending of tax money can all be easily prevented. By replacing low numbered MERV filters with more efficient MERV 8 pleated filters along with maintaining a replacement schedule, there are many benefits:
1. Save on labor, disposal costs, and energy consumption
2. Improve IAQ
3. Provide a safe, clean, and comfortable environment for our children and schools
