Years of deferred maintenance have taken a toll on our schools. A recent GAO report on American K-12 schools found that:
an estimated 41 percent of districts need to update or replace heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems in at least half of their schools, representing about 36,000 schools nationwide that need HVAC updates.”
To help schools ensure that indoor air quality, energy efficiency and emissions reduction, and cost saving goals are met during HVAC upgrades, we’ve written the K-12 Schools’ Guide to HVAC System Upgrades. Learn more about enVerid’s HVAC Load Reduction® products and the enVerid Air Purifier below.
HVAC Load Reduction Solution for Schools
For schools looking to control costs, improve learning outcomes, and increase energy efficiency, enVerid’s HVAC Load Reduction (HLR) products deliver award-winning air cleaning technology that lowers the cost of new HVAC equipment, improves indoor air quality, and reduces HVAC energy costs.
Ideally suited for schools installing new HVAC equipment or seeking to make existing dedicated outside air systems or packaged rooftop units more efficient, enVerid’s HLR products clean the air in schools so that indoor air can be safely recirculated and outside air requirements can be reduced using ASHRAE’s performance-based Indoor Air Quality Procedure (IAQP).
By permanently reducing load on HVAC systems, HLR modules lower the energy and carbon intensity of HVAC systems, which saves money and extends HVAC equipment life. The reduction of required outside air also decreases the cost of installing new HVAC equipment by allowing for HVAC system downsizing.
Deploying HLR technology is also a great way to earn up to 17 LEED points for existing buildings, 12 LEED points for new construction projects, and up to 2 preconditions and 5 optimization points in the WELL Air concept category.
HLR technology improves indoor air quality by removing contaminants generated by building materials, furniture, and classroom and cleaning supplies from indoor air, and by reducing the intake of outside air polluted by exhaust from highways and airports, smoke from industrial parks and wildfires, pollen, and ozone.
Compared to other energy saving initiatives that increase project first costs and have long payback periods, enVerid’s HLR products allow for the use of ASHRAE’s IAQP to deliver both first cost savings from downsizing new HVAC equipment and ongoing energy savings by permanently reducing load on HVAC systems.
When combined with high-efficiency MERV filters or local HEPA filters such as the enVerid Air Purifier, HLR technology can be used to deliver safe indoor air quality for virus mitigation with less outside air, which is less energy and carbon intensive than ventilation-only approaches to mitigate the airborne transmission of viruses.
