A pleasant indoor climate in schools has a positive effect on the health, the learning achievements and the functioning of students and teachers. The programme of requirements Frisse Scholen (Fresh Schools)serves as a important guide for realising a Fresh School.The new programme of requirements has been modified from the previous version, in order to place more emphasis on energy performance. The latest version from September 2015 includes the following changes in the area of ventilation:
- A ventilation system with mechanical air inlet must always be equipped with heat recovery with a minimum efficiency of 75%. This requirement must be met 95% of the time.
- Individual choice: for certain aspects it is possible to choose Class A, for example only the noise element.
- Management: the design of the electricity system must be such that different components (heating, cooling, ventilation, humidifying, lighting, equipment) can be measured individually.
Naturally, the Ned Air ventilation systems for school ventilation all satisfy the new requirements.
