Large Scale Study and Diagnostic Testing of Schools and Classrooms

The Florida Solar Energy Center conducted a three-part project to investigate indoor air quality problems in eight schools located in Florida, Minnesota, New York, Oregon, Texas and Washington. The project consisted of:

  1. Nationwide, web-based survey designed to determine the levels of occupant satisfaction or dissatisfaction with the IAQ, thermal, lighting and acoustical conditions in schools and classrooms;
  2. Characterization of actual operating conditions of schools and classrooms through field audits and diagnostic tests and measurements; and
  3. Conducting retrofits in problem schools and classrooms to alleviate problems.
