For over 35 years, Dynamic Air Quality Solutions has provided colleges and universities with innovative solutions that optimize air quality, energy consumption, and sustainability. Dynamic was founded by two university professors and academia represents one of our largest market segments. Institutions around the world rely on Dynamic technology to improve their learning environments, protect their books and artwork, and maintain their lab and hospital environments, all while reducing their carbon footprint and maintenance costs.
Dynamic Engineered Systems Deliver:
In higher education, Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is mission critical. Processes, equipment, collections and facilities all require increasingly higher levels of air quality. Further, the most valuable asset in any building – the people, expect that the air they breathe will be free of contaminants. This has led to the use of more robust filtration systems that are able to address particle, biological, and gas phase contaminants. However, since over 90% of the cost of cleaning the air is the cost of the energy to move it through the system, providing cleaner air has generally increased energy, operational, and maintenance costs.
Dynamic has a range of systems that provide effective and cost-effective control of all phases of IAQ, while using up to 2/3 less energy and having a fraction of the maintenance. For specific IAQ issues that are existing or anticipated, Dynamic has the experience and expertise to analyze the problem and integrate technologies into a solution.
Dynamic Air Cleaners are an ideal indoor air quality solution for schools, colleges and universities. Without sacrificing budgets, higher education institutions can utilize these highly-versatile air cleaners to lower energy costs and establish greener, healthier learning environments for teachers and students.
A report from The American Institute of Architects, The Redford Center, ICLEI USA – Local Governments for Sustainability and the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) estimates inefficiency costs the average school $100,000 each year. The report also states 14 million students attend schools considered below standard or dangerous, with more than 15,000 schools having air deemed unsafe to breathe. Generating a return on investment in three to five years, Dynamic Air Cleaners remove dangerous airborne particles that other air cleaning systems miss, including odors, smoke, bacteria, allergens, fine dust, mold and pollen, without producing any harmful ozone.
“The conventional approach to air quality in schools is to introduce fresh, outside air to dilute contaminants. But this can be costly and inefficient, especially when the outside air is polluted by school bus exhaust and vehicle emissions from nearby roadways, highways and urban streets,” said Duke Wiser, president of Dynamic Air Quality Solutions. “Cleaning the air instead of diluting it can save energy and money. Dynamic Air Cleaners cut outside air requirements in half, sometimes even to a third, and have much lower static pressures than other high efficiency air cleaners.”
In addition to helping schools improve indoor air quality, Dynamic reduces absenteeism caused by illnesses spread by airborne contaminants, as well as reduces the risk of potential mold problems by removing mold spores from the air stream. Dynamic’s lighter, less bulky and easy-to-handle air cleaners also reduce filter maintenance and save labor costs, as the media last much longer than conventional passive filtration.
