Indoor air quality (IAQ) is a serious problem for schools, universities and daycare facilities.
With threats like COVID-19 and pre-pandemic statistics showing over 14 million missed school days each year, providing the best IAQ improvements in educational facilities is not an option – it’s critical. The link between indoor air quality and the health, productivity, performance, and the comfort of students, teachers and staff is well documented.
Education facilities have been directed to increase ventilation, filtration and use UVGI were possible. As the “respiratory system” of your facility, your HVAC system must be clean and in impeccable working order. Numerous studies have demonstrated that the HVAC system is a viable amplifier, reservoir and transport of pathogenic and opportunistic viruses, bacteria, and mold. These same pathogens have been associated with respiratory illnesses, asthma, and allergies that can lead to school absenteeism and impact overall student learning.
IAQ improvements installed in education facilities of new or existing HVAC systems, Steril-Aire’s multi-patented solutions disinfect the air while keeping coils and drain pans clean, eliminating this source of infections, allergens, toxins and irritants supporting a safe learning environment.
Biofilm matters to educational budgets as well. Biofilm buildup strains HVAC systems, increases energy and water consumption and leads to the HVAC system failures that contribute to budget overruns, school closures and delays.
Only Steril-Aire UVC Emitters deliver:
- Airborne and surface disinfection
- Improved indoor air quality and indoor environment
- Reduced costly HVAC maintenance and cleaning programs
- Energy savings by restoring heat transfer and chiller efficiency
- The highest output at HVAC operating conditions for optimal germicidal control
- The lowest life-cycle cost of any UVC product
- The most rapid return investment
Never settle for less than Steril-Aire.
When you keep your HVAC and air handling systems free of biofilm, you keep indoor air quality (IAQ) and staff and student performance high while your operational and energy costs remain low.

UVGI Irradiates Bus Cabin Air and Saves on AC Costs
Coil Cleaning Myths (Contracting Business)
Typical fin design restricts the effectiveness of pressure spraying for coil cleaning and simply “packs” the biological matter further into the coil interior resulting increased air pressure drop and reduced air flow.
College of the Sequoias, Visalia, CA
This CA community college eliminated time-consuming, costly coil cleaning and improved indoor air quality to create a better learning and working environment.
Crescent Avenue Christian Preschool, Buena Park, CA
Steril-Aire UVC Emitters enhance HVAC environmental hygiene and reduce illness and absenteeism at this CA preschool.
Iolani School, Honolulu, HI
Looking for an effective way to control mold in this school’s air handlers and improve indoor air quality, Iolani installed UVC Emitters. They also eliminated costly coil cleaning programs.
Iolani School Update, Honolulu, HI
The UVC installation has eliminated HVAC mold growth and odor and achieved a maintenance savings of over $8,000 annually for coil cleaning and mold remediation.
LaPorte Independent School District, LaPort, TX
The deployment of Steril-Aire UVC helps this school district solve a costly maintenance problem with the additional benefit of energy and operational savings. They achieved the added important benefit of decreased student and teacher absenteeism.
Stepping Stones Center, Cincinnati, OH
This school reduced the need for several other remedial measures in a building where mold was discovered. When the school found that remediation costs with UVC would be considerably lower, they were able to use the funds instead to expand and upgrade the building.
University of Delaware, Newark, DE
This biotech facility installed UVC to improve indoor air quality and protect sensitive research and laboratory testing. The Steril-Aire UVC solution helped them achieve the added benefit of water conservation by pumping the clean condensate to the cooling tower as make up water with an additional direct savings of $4,000-$6,000 annually.
University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, New Mexico
Ultraviolet results in ultra savings at the UNM campus with increased HVAC and chiller performance and over $60,000 in annual energy savings.
