Discussion of Facilities Grant

Committee Chair, Alan Locke, discussed potential HVAC system enhancements through a potential facilities grant award.

Mr. Locke discussed that an upgrade of all HVAC filtration to ASHRAE MERV 13 would be an option, as that filtration would be an increase from the school's current filtration. He did note that the school would likely see an increase in energy usage, as a side note.

Mr. Locke presented three other system options for remainder of Facilities Grant, all of which are being currently considered by a variety of school systems and all of which have a level of uncertainty as to impact due to lack of thorough data and studies:

  • In-room filtration unit if system is not providing input from outside air; provides equivalent of air exchange; would have to buy unit for each room
  • UV air sanitation- UV light source is used within system to sanitize air; conflicting information as to its efficacy; expensive
  • bipolar ionization--Decatur City Schools is using this technology;
