Indoor Air Quality Guide
A guide on how to maintain healthy, fresh air in schools, by the American Lung Association in partnership with Airthings and Carrier Colorado.
Schools across the globe have shifted their focus to the importance of indoor air quality in light of recent events. And it makes sense too.
In fact, a 2020 study from the U.S. Government Accountability Office shows 41% of schools need to update or replace their ventilation systems. Inadequate ventilation means unhealthy air can build up for students and staff.
The goal of this guide is to:
better performance on cognitive tasks
improvement in decision-making
fewer headaches and respiratory issues when IAQ is improved
