Date:3/5/2008

One Elementary School Reported 61% Fewer Student Sick Days the First Year

After They Installed Purifans

WICHITA, Kan., March 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Purifan, Inc. announced today that 20 additional schools in Oklahoma, California, Iowa, Texas, Illinois, New Jersey, and Kansas have installed the Purifan Clean Air Wellness System. Since Purifan started marketing to schools in 2005, more than 40 school districts have installed Purifans in classrooms. Purifan's CEO, Stan Brannan, also announced a significant number of school Superintendents are considering installing Purifans in classrooms to improve student and teacher wellness, increase attendance and raise student test scores.

At the AASA National Conference on Education held February 14-16 in Tampa, Florida, sponsored by the American Association of School Administrators, Purifan's CEO, Stan Brannan, made several presentations in the AASA Wellness Pavilion. The Purifan presentations informed school administrators about the benefits being reported by schools, of aggressively filtering the classroom air to make it healthier for students and teachers. The Purifan Clean Air Wellness System typically filters classroom air about forty times per hour, removing airborne particles, allergens and odors. Studies have also indicated this level of air filtration can reduce the airborne spread of contagious illness including colds and flu.

"Asthma is the number one chronic illness for children and the number one cause of missed school days, and Superintendents were very interested in our Wellness Program and more than 100 school districts requested follow-up meetings or trial installations," stated Stan Brannan, CEO of Purifan. "School administrators know that families and teachers are spending a lot of money on respiratory health issues like allergies and Asthma," he continued. "Most school districts want to reduce absenteeism and lower teacher health insurance costs, and we believe our Purifan Clean Air Wellness Program is the best way to accomplish these goals," explained Brannan. "Our financial payback analysis typically shows a 10 to 1 annual return, plus teachers report that students feel better, perform better in class and get higher test scores," stated Brannan. "The total financial benefits are even more significant when you consider the value of increased attendance-based school funding, the families' health cost savings, the savings to employers when parents miss fewer work days to care for sick children, the Medicaid Insurance savings, the teacher health cost savings and substitute teacher cost savings," Brannan added.

Purifan is a patented, ceiling-mounted air purifier. Purifans do not add ions or ozone to the air. Over 35,000 Purifan Clean Air Systems have been installed by local dealers in schools, daycares, offices, bars, nursing homes, restaurants and homes. Purifan is looking for local dealers nationwide including HVAC contractors and Indoor Air Quality Professionals.
