Decrease Allergens in your School with Vertical Ventilation Systems from Modine
Springtime is here. That means warmer temperatures and outdoor activities. Unfortunately, that also means seasonal allergies like pollen are beginning to pop up, causing runny noses, sneezing and a generally unpleasant feeling. This can be inconvenient for school-aged children who have to deal with these complications while also trying to get a great education.
Commercial HVAC units are the best option to treat the air inside schools and minimize the effect of allergens in a classroom. These units can filter airborne allergens while also introducing new fresh air into the space. As part of the filtration process, commercial HVAC units minimize the number of outside allergens that enter a school while also pushing bad air outdoors.
At Modine, our Airedale series provides the perfect solution for schools looking to create fresh air while eliminating allergens.
Airedale ClassMate® DX Cooling and Heat Pump
The Airedale ClassMate® is outfitted with both energy recovery, dedicated ventilation fans capable of up to 500 CFM of outside air and modulating economizer damper. Economizer damper can provide 100% free cooling when OA conditions permit and meet the minimum fresh air requirements. The ClassMate® is the quietest single packaged product of its kind on the market today. It has been engineered specifically for efficiency, noise reduction and a small footprint. All models meet or exceed the DOE minimum requirement of 11.0 EER. The ClassMate® is available in 24, 36, 48, and 60 nominal MBH.
Airedale Sentinel® Chilled/Hot Water Unit Ventilator
The Sentinel® operates in conjunction with a school’s central chiller/boiler plant. Created to help schools minimize their energy consumption, the Sentinel® was also designed to provide the proper amount of fresh air ventilation. It comes with a two-inch, MERV 8 filter to help decrease the number of allergens and airborne pathogens in the classroom. The Modine Controls System comes standard on the unit to maximize efficiency, reliability and serviceability.
Airedale SchoolMate® Ground Source and Water Source Heat Pump
The SchoolMate® maximizes energy efficiency by using the natural heat sink of the earth with Modine’s patented CF® coil. This helps schools save thousands of dollars annually and requires less HVAC equipment space while reducing operating costs. Similar to the ClassMate®, the unit’s economizer damper can provide 100% free cooling when OA conditions permit and meet the minimum fresh air requirements. This unit can utilize up to MERV 13 (all models) filters and has Modine’s patented two-row microchannel technology for maximum efficiency and performance. The SchoolMate® combined with the STUDY package increases acoustical performance and achieves the highest standard of noise reduction in the classroom.
