Why School Ventilation Systems Are Stifling
Date: Wednesday, October 25
Time: 1:00 PM – 1:30 PM
Location: Exhibit Floor
Overview: A recent study by Harvard University definitively links poor educational performance to inadequate, outdated classroom ventilation. As Districts consider options for improving school facilities, it is imperative that a holistic approach toward climate control be implemented in all designs. This session will consider several low-cost and high-tech solutions including, demand control ventilation, displacement ventilation, CO2 effects, radiant heat and the connection between physical comfort and student achievement. Best practices will be explored from economic, sustainable and performance criteria.
