Kenton County School District

Less energy use, less risk, better IAQ!

When publicity about high costs and litigation due to mold contamination in neighboring states reached Kenton County School District’s energy manager, the district became concerned, even though they had never experienced a mold problem. With each school managing its own AHU maintenance, some AHU coils were regularly serviced while others were deferred. The solution? KCS contracted Lumalier, as part of an ESPC, to install UVC into its schools. The results: elimination of coil cleaning, reduced energy consumption, mitigation of mold concerns and liability, and improved overall indoor air quality (IAQ).
