As part of the State Primary School’s “Classroom Comfort Project”, this school opted for installing several solar-powered roof fans, ceiling vents as well as numerous floor and wall vents in the aim of reducing heat accumulation in roof cavities and aid in the natural cross-flow ventilation of the existing and newly installed vents. Ultimately, the goal was to create a more cool and comfortable working and learning environment for students and teachers alike.
The school’s ultimate goal was successfully achieved by installing 12 Solar Whiz units ranging from the smallest SW1400 through to the largest SW3000. These units were installed strategically throughout the school on various flat, pitched and gable roofs to reduce accumulated heat in the roof cavities of classrooms as well as several staff areas.
Overall, the installation was able to create a more comfortable environment for both the teachers and students as it aided in the natural ventilation of the school, increased the efficiency of the existing air conditioning as well as reduce their overall costs for running air conditioning for extended periods.
The project has proved to be greatly successful and endeavours are now to expand and offer the same opportunity for neighbouring schools in Queensland as well as around Australia.
