Abstract

School buildings are very important for society. The number of children in schools in REHVA countries throughout Europe is more than 100 million, a considerable part of population. School buildings also represent a significant part of the building stock, and also a noteworthy part of the total energy use. Unfortunately studies in many countries have shown numerous shortcomings in the indoor environment of schools. This guidebook gives a sound background on the basics of the human requirements with respect to indoor environmental conditions for the design and operation of schools for the optimal performance of the students. The book also describes the principles of good HVAC systems for schools. It focuses particularly on energy efficient systems for a healthy indoor environment. The book gives also practical guidance for selection, installation and operation of HVAC systems. With case studies from different climatic conditions it illustrates how the renovation can impact on energy performance and indoor environment of school buildings.
