Jaga has provided an oxygen system to maintain good indoor air quality (IAQ) at the Silver Springs Primary Academy in Stalybridge. As one of four schools making up the North West Primary School Building Program, Silver Springs was financed by the Education Funding Authority.
Silver Springs required a solution which could provide both heating and ventilation to maintain good indoor air quality (IAQ), preventing the hot and stuffy feeling generated by the build-up of CO₂. Research has proven that too much CO₂ in the classroom’s air affects pupil performance, lowers attainment and can also lead to complaints such as headaches, drowsiness and a marked lack of concentration.
Jaga’s Oxygen system was the perfect solution to the school’s need. At Silver Springs, the Oxygen system works by monitoring and measuring both temperature and CO₂ levels in the six downstairs classrooms, automatically drawing fresh, clean air in when required to maintain the optimum IAQ.
The Oxygen refresh units are built into Jaga’s Guardian Low Surface Temperature (LST) radiators. The upstairs classrooms feature two Guardian LST radiators per room, all of the Guardians installed featured Jaga’s award-winning Low-H2O technology, offering energy savings of up to 16% compared to a standard steel panel radiator.
