BILLERICA, Mass. - GE Sensing & Inspection Technologies, a unit of GE Enterprise Solutions, has introduced a new Web page designed to help schools control their ventilation and outdoor air supply.

“Maintaining proper air quality in schools is an important part of maintaining a comfortable, healthy, productive environment for students and faculty,” said Rod Valenta, general manager of GE Sensing & Inspection Technologies’ Telaire division.

The business launched a Web page to educate interested parties in the effects of ventilation in educational facilities. The page includes studies showing the impacts of too little ventilation, information on CO2-based ventilation control, potential rebates, and an expected savings calculator. The Web page is available at www.gesensing.com/market/education.htm.

The company says that improper ventilation can have a negative impact on student health and performance, increase risk from litigation, and waste energy. Implementing CO2-based ventilation control (also called demand controlled ventilation), such as with GE’s Telaire CO2 sensors, helps ensure proper indoor air quality, saves energy usage when compared to the alternative fixed ventilation approach, helps reduce absenteeism, and reduces risk because compliance to codes and standards are measured and assured.
