We’ll soon start shutting the windows to keep the heat in – and inadvertently trapping in pollutants, too. Could leasing Dyson’s latest DfE-approved purifier be an affordable way to ensure your students and staff are breathing clean air?

When you think about air pollution, you probably picture car exhausts, inner-city smog and smokestacks pumping out fumes. However, indoor air pollution can be up to five times worse than outdoor air pollution[1] and, at its peak, up to 560 times higher.[2] But it’s not just a case of trapping external pollution indoors, we’re creating them inside, too.

The air in our classrooms and communal areas is a cocktail of microbes, dust, pollen, allergens, bacteria and can even contain gases, like benzene, VOCs and formaldehyde. They’re emitted from some paints and varnishes, cleaning products, building materials and furniture. Carbon dioxide (CO2) levels are often higher, too, because of the concentration of children in one enclosed space.

It’s incredibly important to think about the air we breathe – especially when we spend up to 90% of our time indoors[3] – as it ultimately affects our health, wellbeing and ability to concentration.

The good news is that the Department for Education announced its approval of Dyson HEPA Cool™ Formaldehyde air purifying fans to make indoor educational spaces suitably ventilated. It has a unique air projection loop, which drives even distant pollution back through three sealed filters to purify the whole room. The first HEPA H13 filter captures 99.95% of particles as small as 0.1 microns,[4] the second carbon filter captures gases, and the third catalytic filter continuously destroys formaldehyde.[5]

What’s more, the Dyson HEPA Cool™ Formaldehyde air purifying fan is acoustically engineered to reduce turbulence, so it’s 20% quieter than the previous model so more suitable for pupils with sound sensitivity issues.

Lease Dyson’s latest DfE-approved purifier

Although every school will want their staff and pupils to breathe clean air, few will have the capital to buy new equipment whenever they want. But Dyson leasing opens the door to a more flexible, simple and affordable option.

Dyson leasing allows you to build the right portfolio of machines for your school – across air treatment, vacuums, lighting and hand dryers – and pay just one fixed monthly amount. The Dyson HEPA Cool™ Formaldehyde air purifying fan, for example, costs as little as £21.99 a month, equivalent to 72p per day. 

You can start with air purification and build other categories into your leasing package. Many schools like the Dyson Airblade™ V hand dryer for its compact size and ability to dry hands in just 12 seconds, while capturing 99.95% of bacteria-sized particles through its HEPA filter.4 It’s approved by the Carbon Trust and also 35% quieter than its predecessor, making it more suitable for pupils with sound sensitivity issues. You can lease it from just £14.99 per month, equivalent to 49p per day.

The Dyson Airblade™ 9kJ hand dryer is infinitely more sustainable and cheaper than paper towels. It’s one of the simplest ways you can reduce paper and energy waste – and save money – in the school washrooms.

Firstly, it creates no waste. Secondly, it produces up to 85% less CO2 than paper towels5 and uses only a sixth of the energy of conventional dryers. And thirdly, it costs 99% less to run than paper towels, working out at just £19 a year in Eco mode. In fact, it’s our most cost and energy-efficient hand dryer to date. It’s available to lease from £20.99 per month, equivalent to 69p per day.

What’s more, it’s approved by the Carbon Trust, BREAAM, WELL Building StandardTM, LEED and Quiet Mark.

The Dyson Solarcycle™ desk light is another good option for education environments, as it allows to personalise illumination for your age and task and intelligently adapts it to the time of day, helping to reduce eye strain when studying. [6] It’s available to lease from £29.98 per month, equivalent to 98p per day.
