The educational landscape has shifted drastically. The threat of COVID-19 exposure in the air has drawn significant attention and concern for the health and wellbeing of students, educators and staff.
As learning shifts back to face-to-face, classroom instruction this fall, enhanced indoor air quality in schools is a cornerstone of readiness for that new world.
Increased ventilation can provide enhanced indoor air quality in schools and peace of mind for students, educators and their families. In their latest live event, RenewAire VP of Sales & Marketing Nick Agopian welcomed VEIC Senior Energy Engineer, HVAC Rachael Mascolino, and they discussed this important matter.
The two industry experts helped facility managers, administrators, educators, parents and students prepare for the impending return to the classroom and shared:
The event also featured a robust discussion on how climate and geography can impact ventilation strategies, as well as statistics that highlight its importance for the return to classrooms this fall and beyond.
RenewAire has been a pioneer in Energy Recovery Ventilation technologies for over 35 years. Our Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERVs) improve people’s health, cognitive function, productivity and wellbeing by enhancing indoor air quality (IAQ) in homes and buildings of every type. This is done energy-efficiently, cost-effectively and sustainably via fifth-generation, static-plate, enthalpy-core ERVs and Dedicated Outdoor Air Systems (DOAS) that reuse otherwise-wasted energy to condition incoming outdoor air.
As the energy industry evolves, VEIC continues to translate input on market needs and opportunities into innovation for a new era. This work has involved big-thinking approaches that address more than traditional energy efficiency measures and reducing fossil fuel use.
VEIC is now aggressively moving the marketplace toward high-performance, efficient products, advancing transportation electrification, helping decarbonize buildings, and ensuring clean and efficient energy solutions reach all people, including low-income and disenfranchised communities.
