Control classroom heating and ventilation

Question:
How can I provide optimal conditions and save energy in classrooms?

 

Answer:
Indoor-air quality is crucial to ensuring optimal learning and teaching conditions in your classrooms. Consequently, the use of HVAC in schools and universities can be responsible for 40-60% of their energy bills. EcoXperts can provide you with solutions that ensure comfortable temperature and ventilation conditions and reduce energy consumption.

Save up to 25% on energy bills with efficient ventilation*

 

EcoXperts specialize in delivering suitable
Schneider Electric systems that optimize HVAC operation and enable appropriate temperature settings, time programming, and machine control:

  • CO2 sensors are crucial for delivering appropriate ventilation within a classroom and help ensure a comfortable learning environment. 
  • Room controls are a combination of different control levels that provide your students and teachers with the desired temperature settings. Your classroom HVAC can switch to standby mode whenever the classroom is unoccupied or a window is opened.
