Children with face mask back at school after covid-19 quarantine and lockdown.

As a school district leader, we know you’re facing numerous challenges and questions around when to reopen your school and how to do it safely.

We’re here to partner with you and support you no matter where you are in this complex journey.

The CDC recently reported that “transmission of coronavirus occurs much more commonly through respiratory droplets than through objects and surfaces.” And the World Health Organization has revised its guidance on COVID-19 modes of transmission highlighting “aerosol transmission and importance of ventilation.”

Air quality. Your ally for addressing health risks in your school.

How to become more air aware.

This brings the importance of indoor air quality to the forefront of the conversation as schools look at ways to address health risks. Along with implementing social distancing, utilizing PPE and disinfecting surfaces, optimizing your school's HVAC systems can help improve the quality of the air students are breathing. And restore confidence that holistic measures are being taken to enhance air quality safety as schools reopen.

Our 100 years of expertise managing and improving indoor air quality can provide you with the science-backed information you need to leverage your school’s HVAC systems within your learning environment. An IAQ (Indoor Air Quality) assessment from Trane will provide a data driven analysis and fact-based numbers showing how well your school’s HVAC systems meet best practices in four key measures of indoor air quality. 

Four key factors for improving indoor air quality.
