Maintaining Air Quality in Schools During HVAC Repairs

As summer comes to a close, it’s time for many students, faculty, and staff to return to schools and universities for the fall semester. In a time where health and safety are paramount, air quality in schools is something that administrative teams should address should problems arise. If an HVAC system needs to be turned off for repairs or isn’t functioning properly, Polygon can equip your building with the equipment necessary to maintain healthy air quality while the HVAC is undergoing repairs.

When an HVAC system is turned off to repairs, the temperature inside the building is not the only thing to worry about. Humidity can also be a serious issue. When relative humidity gets too high, it creates an ideal environment for the growth of mold and other harmful substances. While there are conflicting reports on the impact of relative humidity and temperature on the spread of the coronavirus, there is no reason to risk air quality during HVAC repairs.

There is an unprecedented focus on health and safety in today’s schools amid this pandemic. Administrators are looking for any way possible to make their schools safer for students, faculty, and staff. Efforts include the installation of plexiglass around desks, rules for social distancing and wearing masks in the school building, moving certain classes outdoors, and HVAC system improvements.

Polygon offers temporary climate control equipment and the expertise necessary to keep everyone inside schools comfortable while the necessary changes are being made to improve safety. We can equip areas that are prone to collecting moisture with dehumidifiers and provide temporary air conditioning in rooms while changes to the HVAC system are made. While schools take the steps to make this school year as safe is it can be, trust Polygon to equip your building with what you need to keep the building functional for teachers, staff, and students.
