Students and teachers spend the majority of their school day inside, making indoor air quality, including correct temperature and humidity levels, critical to health and comfort. Without precise humidification management, school facilities that are air conditioned during the summer and heated in the winter are likely to struggle with sub-optimal humidity. Continuous exposure to a humidity level below 40%RH will negatively affect the health and comfort of school staff and students. A high absence rate and decrease in productivity are common results.
The indoor climate in your school is the first line of defense against viruses such as influenza and other corona viruses. Research by the scientific community shows that a minimum indoor humidity limit between 40%-60%RH, is the optimum threshold for inhibiting the spread of respiratory viruses. This is a threshold that many schools drop below. Relative humidity decisively affects the ability of viral aerosol to remain suspended in indoor air. Unlike the larger and heavier infectious droplets produced by coughing or sneezing, which fall to the ground after a few seconds, lighter and smaller aerosols can stay suspended in the air for hours at a time.
氣溶膠由水，溶解的鹽和蛋白質組成。在40％以下的相對濕度下，氣溶膠無法保留這種水並將其幹燥出來。這產生幹燥氣溶膠，較小，更輕，並且可以通過室內空氣漂浮。與較大的液滴不同，它們的較低的水含量也使它們更少“粘稠”，因此它們不能如此容易地結合在一起。Air flows and the movements of people in classrooms also mean that dry aerosols are swept off surfaces more quickly and can therefore spread further.

This document presents an introductory approach for schools on how to best manage humidity levels to optimize health, safety, and productivity.
The TE series is a direct feed system without water recirculation. For extended media life, the frequency of the drain can be adjusted according to the supply water quality which will help prolong media life.
Each unit is designed to humidify a space directly, and fits most standard suspended ceilings for discrete operation, saving space. The humidifier can also be installed in open ceilings. Control of the TE Series is made easy through a wall mounted remote controller, which includes an integrated humidistat.
