This webinar, recorded on Thursday, March 12, 2015, and sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, will help viewers to:

  • Explain the critical connection between IAQ and energy efficiency and the importance of properly integrating the two for optimal occupant health and building performance.
  • Take a proactive approach to saving energy and money, including possible processes, procedures, policies, and key principles that facility managers need to understand to effectively protect IAQ while increasing energy efficiency.
  • Replicate best practices to integrate IAQ and energy efficiency into building operations and maintenance activities, including facility design, construction and renovation.
  • Use resources to help with their energy efficiency efforts, including ENERGY STAR® tools, and EPA’s new guide, Energy Savings Plus Health: Indoor Air Quality Guidelines for School Building Upgrades.
  • Implement energy efficiency measures while maintaining occupant health, with examples from a successful model school district.

Speakers include:

  • Tracy Enger, EPA Indoor Environments Division, Office of Air and Radiation
