Air conditioning in educational facilities.
Comfortable learning environments make people more receptive and focused on their work. However, a large room with many people can bring about feelings of tiredness which can quickly set in. Optimising the air humidity can provide relief in these instances.
If the air is too dry, people emit moisture from the body’s water balance into the atmosphere. This causes the skin, lips and eyes to dry out which can negatively impact a person’s general well-being. Dry air can also affect the function of the mucous membrane in the respiratory channels and make it less capable of protecting the human body against bacteria and viruses.
Humidifying the ambient air provides a healthier learning and working environment for those learning, teaching and working in the building.
Here is an overview of the advantages of air humidification in learning environments:
- Reduces sick leave due to a healthier room atmosphere
- Reduces dust pollution in lecture halls and technical rooms
- Improved university ranking
- Protects against electrostatic discharge
- Highly energy efficient when air conditioning different rooms
