UVC Solutions for Daycare and Educational Facilities

Why is indoor air quality (IAQ) a serious problem for schools, universities and daycare facilities?



With over 14 million missed school days each year, providing the best indoor air quality (IAQ) in educational facilities is not an option – it’s essential. The link between indoor air pollution and the health, productivity, performance, and the comfort of students, teachers and staff is well documented.

As the “respiratory system” of your facility, your HVAC system must be clean and in impeccable working order. Numerous studies have demonstrated that the HVAC system is a viable amplifier, reservoir and transport of pathogenic and opportunistic bacteria and mold. These same pathogens have been associated with asthma, respiratory illnesses and allergies that can lead to school absenteeism and impact student learning.

Installed in new or existing HVAC systems, Steril-Aire’s multi-patented UVC keeps coils and drain pans clean, eliminating this source of allergens, toxins and irritants supporting a safe learning environment. Biofilm matters to educational budgets as well. Biofilm buildup strains HVAC systems, increases energy and water consumption and leads to the HVAC system failures that contribute to budget overruns, school closures and delays.

Only Steril-Aire UVC Emitters deliver:

  • Improved indoor environmental quality
  • Reduced costly HVAC maintenance and cleaning programs
  • Energy savings by restoring heat transfer and chiller efficiency
  • The highest output at HVAC operating conditions for optimal germicidal control
  • The lowest life-cycle cost of any UVC product
  • The most rapid return investment

Never settle for less than Steril-Aire.

When you keep your HVAC and air handling systems free of biofilm, you keep indoor air quality (IAQ) and staff and student performance high and your operational and energy costs low.
