As those working in the educational industry will know, heating and cooling systems in Schools, Colleges and Universities is one of, if not the most costly building running costs and requires constant management in order to maintain comfortable levels for both staff and students.
Airius have been working with schools, colleges and universities, not only throughout the UK, but all across the world to help reduce their running costs (in some cases by over 50%) and maintain optimum comfort levels for learning and teaching with the Airius destratification system.
The effects of stratification, which is the vertical layering of increasing temperatures in a space as a result of heat rising, is a common and costly problem experienced in schools, Colleges and Universities. The typical design of these buildings with high ceilinged Assembly Halls, Lecture Theatres, Sports Facilities and Swimming Pools etc. means excessive amounts of heat needs to be supplied to first fill the void above head height before desired temperatures reach floor level. Alternatively, in cooled spaces interior design, furnishings and atmospheric loss through open doors and windows hinder uniform distribution of comfort. With the Airius destratification system the need to over-heat or over-cool a space is eliminated and significant savings can be achieved.
As well as being endorsed by the Carbon Trust, who recommend destratification as one of their top cost and carbon saving measures, the Airius Range is available to purchase under the Salix funding scheme which delivers 100% interest free capital to the public sector, giving the flexibility to fund projects through the
“Prior to installation the main admin block was unbearable to work in – since the installation the whole admin area has improved. The mezzanine is not as hot and the main area on the ground has a more stable temperature. I can honestly say that the installation has improved comfort levels in the whole area.”
