As students, teachers and staff return for in-person learning, your school's HVAC system can help address health risks by optimizing indoor air quality. The same is true for all public sector buildings as they begin to open the doors to the public.

Those that operate inconsistently and inefficiently are liabilities. Over time, aging systems can turn any facility into a burden. But when budgets barely cover immediate maintenance and repairs, what are the options? Some organizations are taking a look at Energy Savings Performance Contracting (ESPC).
