HVAC Augmentation

Monday, August 4, 2008

We were lucky in the Main Library. We have three air handlers and have managed to keep two of the three working. With one out, we needed a way to keep air circulating everywhere. Plastic air tubes were placed strategically throughout the building to¬†augment our HVAC system. Air is brought in and then circulated through our system. We needed this extra boost for the health of staff and collections. Stale air can be a real problem. We were also able to maintain a temperature and humidity that is typical for our building — 70-80 degrees and 50-60% relative humidity.
