There are many factors to consider in creating healthy learning environments when conducting school renovation or energy efficiency upgrade projects in schools, including indoor air quality (IAQ). Join this webinar to learn how to optimize the critical connection between IAQ, energy efficiency and preventive maintenance. Hear from technical experts and a school district about key actions you can take to integrate IAQ and energy efficiency for optimal occupant health and building performance, and the importance of incorporating preventive maintenance into your project.

This webinar will introduce you to one of EPAs flagship resources”Energy Savings Plus Health: Indoor Air Quality Guidelines for School Building Upgrades [ https://www.epa.gov/iaq-schools/protecting-iaq-during-school-energy-efficiency-retrofit-projects-energy-savings-plus?utm_content=&utm_medium=email&utm_name=&utm_source=govdelivery&utm_term= ]” and the accompanying Interactive Air Quality Planner for Schools [ https://www.epa.gov/sites/production/files/2017-01/iaq_planner.xls?utm_content=&utm_medium=email&utm_name=&utm_source=govdelivery&utm_term= ]that helps you create a custom verification checklist for each step of the upgrade process. Learn how you can join school districts across the nation that use Energy Savings Plus Health (ES+H) to protect occupant health and safety and implement preventive maintenance practices.

To explore the tools prior to the webinar, download the Guidelines [ http://www.epa.gov/sites/production/files/2014-10/documents/energy_savings_plus_health_guideline.pdf?utm_content=&utm_medium=email&utm_name=&utm_source=govdelivery&utm_term= ] and the Interactive Air Quality Planner [ https://www.epa.gov/sites/production/files/2017-01/iaq_planner.xls?utm_content=&utm_medium=email&utm_name=&utm_source=govdelivery&utm_term= ].

*Webinar participants will learn how to*

* Explain the critical connection between IAQ, energy efficiency and preventive maintenance, and the importance of properly integrating them for optimal occupant health and building performance during a renovation project.
* Use resources to help with energy efficiency and preventive maintenance efforts, including the ES+H guide and the accompanying Interactive Air Quality Planner for Schools that helps you create a custom verification checklist for both your building upgrades and concurrent IAQ assessment protocols for each step of the upgrade process.
* Use a case study from a school district on getting started using these resources to create healthy indoor learning environments.
* Start or improve a preventive maintenance program to include IAQ and energy efficiency components as part of a comprehensive building management approach.
