Real Results


Improve performance: Student productivity and cognitive ability can increase by up to 50% in classrooms, libraries, and student living spaces.

  • A Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health study showed that indoor spaces that decreased their carbon dioxide levels from typical classroom conditions of 1,400 ppm to Awair Recommended Levels had a 50% increase in cognitive function scores on tests.

Increase student attendance: Lower absence rates by 35% by maintaining a healthy and safe environment.

  • A report released by the World Green Building Council found that environments with healthy indoor air experience 35% fewer absences from short term sickness, and suggest maintaining carbon dioxide within the Awair Recommended Levels to ensure adequate ventilation.

Boost building efficiency: Achieve up to 79% HVAC energy savings through indoor air quality best-practices, such as improved ventilation.

  • Many schools unknowingly air condition when outdoor ventilation is sufficient—Omni can help determine when mixed-mode and natural ventilation methods can be substituted for energy savings. The World Green Building Council noted that adjusting HVAC controls to enhance air quality and human health resulted in up to 79% energy savings.
