Numerous studies have shown the benefits of better air filtration in schools. In this article, Toronto air filtration experts share studies showing how improving indoor air quality positively impacts student health and well-being and impacts academic achievement.
One notable study investigated using portable units with high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters in schools. According to the findings, such filtration devices can help reduce absenteeism by up to 50%. Furthermore, these HEPA filters were discovered to lower pollution levels, airborne virus transmission, and allergies, resulting in healthier and more comfortable learning environments favorable to improving student performance.
Harvard University professor Joseph Allen studied office workers exposed to varied carbon dioxide (CO2) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) levels. His study found a direct correlation between indoor air quality and cognitive function. Even small changes in air quality, which are within most buildings' capabilities, resulted in better decision-making performance among occupants. Researchers believe such changes can benefit students.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), school indoor air quality directly impacts student health and academic performance. Improved indoor air quality can boost productivity, concentration, and overall well-being, improving attendance and academic achievement.
