The Virtual Mask’s components detect and respond to increased indoor air pollutants and automatically adjust the amount of fresh air that replaces the low-quality recirculated indoor air, thus creating a safer indoor environment.
Working with Thermostats that can sense Co2, this controls all the parts of the VIRTUAL MASK™ system.
This equipment allows fresh outside filtered air into the building when it's needed.
A VFD greatly increases the HVAC fan motor’s efficiency.
Ventilation means providing fresh outdoor air into classrooms. Ventilation removes indoor air pollutants from buildings by bringing in outside air and exhausting room air, which dilutes the concentration of indoor pollutants.
Research has found that increased ventilation rates are associated with increased student performance, improved respiratory health, increased student attendance, and lower risk of transmission of airborne infectious diseases. We recommend that school districts take specific actions to improve classroom ventilation and indoor air quality.

CDC recommends a layered approach to reduce exposures to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. This approach includes using multiple mitigation strategies, including improvements to building ventilation, to reduce the spread of disease and lower the risk of exposure.
FAQ: What does the Virtual Mask™ cost?
"In most circumstances, the energy savings more than offset the cost of the Virtual Mask™. Let us explain how."
FAQ: Are rebates available?"
In certain areas, local power companies offer incentives which can greatly reduce the installation cost. "
FAQ: How is the Virtual Mask™ different?"
Unlike other HVAC technologies, the Virtual Mask™ actively, continuously monitors and reduces indoor Co2 levels and by doing so, lowers the concurrent viral load that accompanies them."
