Good air quality ensures pupils' well-being

As Grange First School in Gosforth embarked upon a school extension project, ensuring good ventilation and air quality was an important element both for the comfort of the teachers and children and for their learning.   The new classrooms for Early Years have now opened and the Vortice heat recovery systems installed have proved a great success.

After considerable research, Newcastle City Council specified the Vort NRG 1500 ECR EH Diva heat recovery units for each of the new classrooms.  These units are complete with CO2 demand control to ensure the correct amount of fresh air is delivered into the classroom dependent upon its requirement and occupancy levels.  Stale extracted air is passed over a heat exchanger so that warmth is recovered and goes into the incoming fresh air, enabling good energy efficiency.
The NRG units are all floor mounted as they are situated within resources store cupboards in the classroom, which have skylights to allow in natural daylight.  This also means that the units are easily accessible to enable filter changes.
When you have around 32 occupants in a classroom all day, it is important for their health and wellbeing that the air is fresh.  The Vort NRG range is ideally suited for schools and offices and with several configurations available there is sure to be one that suits any project.
