The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has released new guidance to help school districts protect indoor air quality while increasing energy efficiency during school renovations.
Both energy management and protection of indoor air quality (IAQ) are important considerations for school facility management during energy upgrades and retrofits, and schools can protect occupant health by addressing both goals. Renovation and construction activities can create dust, introduce new contaminants and contaminant pathways, create or aggravate moisture problems, and result in inadequate ventilation in occupied spaces.
