Mitsubishi Electric will outline its sustainable solutions for schools and colleges at the Education Estates exhibition in Manchester (October 12-13).

The event, at  Manchester Central Exhibition Centre, will offer educationalists the chance to meet with suppliers for the first time since the Covid pandemic started.

“There’s been a lot on the education agenda during that time and the focus now is on how to ventilate classrooms properly as we enter the autumn,” said Mitsubishi Electric's James Smurthwaite. “At the same time, energy prices are rising and everyone has to meet carbon reduction targets, so we’re here to show how all of these challenges can be met with the right solution.”

Mitsubishi Electric says it is able to offer market leading ventilation that can increase fresh air into rooms whilst recovering up to 90% of otherwise wasted heat. Also available are renewable heat pumps that can deliver high temperature hot water as well as sustainable heating. 

The manufacturer also recently launched an air purifier which bolts on to existing air conditioning to neutralise six key indoor pollutants, as well as inhibit 99.8% of SARS-CoV-2.

“From primary schools to universities, we understand the cooling, heating and ventilation needs of the education sector and we are here to help ensure that anyone running an educational building can meet the challenges of complying with legislation, whilst delivering comfortable, energy-efficient buildings with lower running costs,” added Smurthwaite.
