Is the Air Quality in Classrooms affecting our children?

Hot uncomfortable classroom

Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) of educational buildings has become more of a concern due to the increase of asthma and respiratory disease amongst children. Poor air quality in schools can not only affect the health and comfort of pupils, but can also reduce academic achievement and increase absenteeism.

The air quality in our schools can be a staggering 2 to 5 times more polluted and in some cases 100 times more polluted than outdoor air.

Indoor air quality is a concern, because children spend the most of their time indoors where they are repeatedly exposed to poor indoor air. Asthmatic children are particularly sensitive to poor air quality and pollutants.

All schools should have the ability to monitor CO2 levels and adjust accordingly.

Clarkson Controls offer a range of UK designed and manufactured sensors, controllers and BACnet systems to achieve this. To find our more or arrange a demonstration contact us today.
