Le Régent has always prided itself on being situated in one of the most pristine environments in the Swiss Alps. Crans Montana has long been known for its curative properties of clean air, hot springs and healthy living. Now we have a way to prove it. Le Régent has recently installed two new air monitors – one outside and one inside the building. These devices measure the atmospheric conditions (temperature, humidity and so on) as well as the amount of particulates in the air. Our indoor monitor has proven that our Minergie air system is working well – air quality indoors is in the “excellent” range. COVID, for example, is less likely to spread in our building as the air is well circulated. The outdoor air quality is also excellent, often with 0 particulates – in comparison, a typical reading for London, Tokyo, or Geneva is often but not always below 50 (“good”), while in Milan it is often over 150 (“unhealthy”)… The data provided by these devices is used across the curriculum: seeing how different factors such as increased tourism in the winter affect air quality can be useful in multiple subjects.
