  • Takes in the air from a large space, and cleans and discharges it.
  • Light and portable, plugging into a standard wall outlet.
  • Long-lasting 99.97 percent efficiency HEPA filters that significantly reduce the presence of Covid-19 and other airborne containments.
  • Exceeds ASHRAE school reopening recommendations.

They have several convenient features, including:

  • An LED screen that provides a real-time, color-coded rating on your facility’s indoor air quality.
  • Wi-Fi models that can be controlled and monitored via smartphone, tablet, or computer.

Additional solutions to improve your school’s indoor air quality include:

Improve ventilation

Carrier Colorado’s licensed dealers can help you find fast, money-saving solutions that bring fresh air into your school via your HVAC system. This can include simple adjustments to your settings, new equipment, or add-ons.

Control humidity

Our dealers can ensure your school meets ASHRAE humidity guidelines. We service and install quality products that can add or remove humidity to promote healthy air in your learning environment.

Install UV lights

Our HVAC experts can recommend ultraviolet (UV) lighting solutions to remove harmful germs from your HVAC coils. The lights can break down contaminants such as:

  • Microorganisms
  • Bacteria
  • Viruses
  • Mold

Medical professionals and dentists use UV lights to sanitize equipment. The same technology can sanitize your school’s HVAC system, promoting healthy air and prolonging the lifespan of your system.

Your school’s needs are unique. Our recommendations will be, too. Our experts tailor air quality solutions that fit your building’s needs, as well as your budget. We’ll work around your schedule to create a healthy environment for students, staff, and administrators alike. Let [Carrier-Colorado] put you in touch with your neighborhood HVAC experts today.

Reopening Schools, Shaping the Future

Indoor comfort and healthy air are beneficial to learning. When you invest in high-quality equipment, you have the potential to improve your students’ classroom performance. Research shows the following:

  • Inadequate ventilation, dampness, or moisture damage are strongly associated with more missed school days and upper respiratory symptoms among students.
  • Students process information slower in rooms with low ventilation rates and high CO2  levels, with researchers noting a 5 percent decrease in “power of attention,” comparable to how a student may feel after skipping breakfast.
  • Elementary students in classrooms perform better on tests in rooms with portable ventilation systems. Studies show noticeable improvements in word recognition, picture memory, choice reaction, and math test scores.
