Reduced absenteeism of children and employees
Research has shown that 2,000 employees and 20,000 children are home sick every day as a result of unhealthy air in schools and daycare centres.

Inadequate ventilation results in excessive CO2 concentration in rooms. CO2 is a colourless and odourless gas found naturally in the atmosphere. At too high concentrations, it can cause headaches, concentration problems and eye irritation. This can be particularly problematic for children who are sensitive to air pollution (such as asthma sufferers). Schools and daycare centres with a poor indoor climate also have an increased risk of the transmission of infectious diseases, leading to higher absenteeism rates.

The Van Kempen Airco Centre wants to change all this!
Proper ventilation in rooms can prevent these problems and create a healthy indoor climate for both employees and children. Research has proven that good ventilation leads to a performance improvement of 15% to 23% in math tests.

The goal of the government is to have all schools and daycare centres equipped with ventilation within 15 years in order to keep CO2 levels under 1200 ppm (parts per million). More than 80% of schools and daycare centres do not yet meet that standard. Will your school/daycare centre (soon) be among the exceptions?
