MPS Building Report Details Air Quality Improvements, Challenges

MEDFORD, MA — A report compiled late last month and released by the Medford Public Schools Friday shows the improvements done to the HVAC systems in school buildings, as well as some of the air quality challenges the district faced. Workers were onsite last week addressing what the district called “long overdue” repairs to the HVAC systems at its schools. There were enough areas within each school that met, or exceeded, the increased air quality standards to accommodate the return of high needs and kindergarten students.

The MPS report specifically pertained to Cohort A, or the district’s high-needs student population. The district measured air exchanges per hour (ACH) and deemed rooms underneath that threshold unfavorable.

Challenges: Bathrooms Evolving

Bathrooms have certainly come a long way from the crescent moon carved in the door of the quaint (if scented) privy out on the south forty, and the communal tub by the kitchen fireplace!

Time passed, and in many of the stately old Victorian homes, the “evolved” bathrooms consisted of several small rooms in close proximity; one for the water closet and commode, one for a sink with counter and cabinets and one for the bathtub!   Of course, there were variations on those themes and configurations, in order to accommodate all the functions of ablution at that time in history.

The logic applied then, and the design rationales, were partially related to the difficulties of heating, the conservative values concerning segregation of the genders, and the

Driving Residential Energy Improvements – Homeowner Challenges (Part 2 of a 3-Part Series)

Why do most homeowners find it challenging to perform energy upgrades confidently? Why is it difficult to buy higher efficiency equipment, appliances, and incorporate conservation in our lifestyle? After all, many governmental incentive programs have been created to target homeowners in the past several years…

In part 1 of the series, we discussed the four categories of opportunities that can drive residential energy improvements. There is some momentum building in each of those categories except the fourth (homeowners who are not in the market to perform upgrades) through federal, state, local, utility, and private sector rebates. But even with the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), and efforts to move the residential energy agenda forward, the process of implementing energy upgrades in existing homes has been haphazard from state to state.

While outreach to homeowners has been effective in increasing awareness and desire to become more energy efficient, the efforts … Read More
