Air Conditioning & Ventilation for Educational Establishments

You can never trust the great British climate – we can have a heatwave in the winter, snow in Spring, and torrential downpours in the summer.

For schools, it can be a perpetual nightmare keeping buildings comfortable for students and teachers, providing the perfect environment to learn.

There are no rules which prescribe maximum temperatures for school or colleges – in fact, for any workplace. But the Government’s Workplace Regulations advise a minimum temperature of 16°c.

The National Union of Teachers is pressing for legislation which would require schools to stick to World Health Organisation recommendations that students should not have to study in classrooms when the temperature hits 24°c

After all, we can all remember the times sweltering in stuffy classrooms, falling asleep to the monotonous drone of the teacher, waiting for the end of lesson bell to ring.

Key examinations tend to crop up during the hottest months of the year, so without proper air conditioning & ventilation, these can be uncomfortable occasions for nervous students toiling in stuffy exam halls.

Fortunately, many educational establishments have now become wise to the added value which air conditioning & ventilation systems can bring. It also includes creating a greener and environmentally friendly surroundings.
