They are also used in schools and day-care operations. A school classroom needs 2 filter changes per year. The typical home owner needs a filter change every 9-12 months. These filters contain two particle capturing layers including a .3 micron HEPA filter layer. The PA1 filter includes three layers using activated charcoal that capture and reduce odors. One of these layers uses state-of-the-art nano-sized charcoal particles to increase the charcoal surface area by more than 1,000 times, capturing more odors and volatile organic compounds or VOCs in the room.

The capture of ammonia odors are ideal for day-cares, nursing homes, pet stores, zoos, homeless shelters and police stations or offices near detention areas.

Why do PTA and PTO groups buy Purifans for their Classrooms and not the schools?
We have some schools that do purchase the Purifans for their classrooms, but this is often driven by complaints by parents or teachers of serious health problems in their building usually caused by past water damage. School buildings get hidden mold during water damage to the building usually caused by leaking roofs and windows, storm or flood damage, or a major plumbing break flooding the walls with water. The hidden mold in water damaged buildings can cause serious health problems for teachers and students. The primary reason PTO and PTA groups buy the Purifans is that the financial benefits of healthier children are received mostly by the parents, their health insurance providers and their employers. The health savings for students on Medicaid provided health insurance are primarily given to the state’s medicaid program. The school budgets do get some cost savings benefits with healthier teachers, lower costs for substitute teachers and less dust-caused overheat damage to computers, projectors and other electronics in the classrooms. But schools usually need to spend their budget money on other things more related to their direct teaching activites. Moving the air in the rooms can also reduce a school districts’ heating and cooling energy costs, and save on replacing HVAC filters clogged by dust. Parents who want the benefits of healthier children, missing fewer work days and having children get higher grades and test results are a big reason PTO and PTA groups fund Purifans for cash-strapped schools. Since over 90% of the financial savings and payback go to the families, their insurance companies and their employers, PTO and PTA members can justify the effort to raise the money needed to equip the classrooms with Purifans and provide funding needed for the annual filter changes each year.
How much does a school have to spend each year on filter changes for the Purifans?
The typical classroom has two Purifans, and they change each filter set at the start of the school year, and again over the holiday break. The total cost of four filter sets needed per year is only $208 including shipping. If there are 20 children and 1 teacher in the classroom that is an annual cost of under $10 per school year per person. If a school has many classrooms with Purifans they usually buy Purifan Factory Certified Filters at case quantity discounted prices. There are school filter bundles offered on the Purifan website at discounts so the costs per year per classroom drops to $168. This means the annual cost per student drops to only $8.40. What other use of $8.40 spent per student could provide such a tremendous benefit for health, learning and test score results.
Can increasing the daily attendance of students actually increase the state funds sent to that school?
Yes, in some states, like Texas, they have passed laws to move the money to the schools where the students are attending today. They pay the school about $35 per day, per student in attendance, but when the student is home sick the school loses the $35 payment. This punishes the school budget if the classroom air quality is causing many of the illnesses and absences. There is a white paper called “ROI Calculations for a Texas School District…” that allows a district to see the financial budget increase per classroom per year if the absenteeism rates can be reduced by improving the classroom air quality.
