COMPACT SCHOOL AND $$ SAVINGS.
BAIR, W.G.
A REVIEW OF THE CRITERIA FOR CONSIDERING THE USE OF A TOTAL ENERGY SYSTEM WITHIN A SCHOOL BUILDING STATES THE WINDOWLESS, COMPACT SCHOOL OFFERS MORE EFFICIENT SPACE UTILIZATION WITH LESS AREA REQUIRED FOR GIVEN STUDENT POPULATION AND LOWER OPERATION COSTS. THE AUTHOR RECOMMENDS THAT THESE BUILDINGS BE WINDOWLESS TO REDUCE HEAT COSTS, HOWEVER, AT THE SAME TIME IT IS POINTED OUT THAT WINDOWLESS STRUCTURES REQUIRE INCREASED LIGHTING LEVELS, AIR CONDITIONING AND AIR TREATMENT. IT IS RECOMMENDED AT THIS POINT THAT SCHOOL PLANNERS SHOULD SEEK THE ADVICE OF A CONSULTANT ENGINEER TO ASSESS THE FEASIBILITY OF INSTALLING A TOTAL ENERGY UNIT. ANNUAL COSTS OF COMMERCIAL ENERGY SHOULD BE COMPARED WITH OPERATING AND MAINTENANCE OF THE TOTAL ENERGY SYSTEM. SHOULD THE PLANNERS FAVOR THE TOTAL ENERGY UNIT, THEY SHOULD ALSO CONSIDER THE PURCHASE OF BACK-UP UNITS TO OPERATE IN THE EVENT OF A POWER FAILURE OF THE PRIMARY UNIT. THIS ARTICLE APPEARED IN THE MAY, 1966 ISSUE OF AMERICAN SCHOOL BOARD JOURNAL. COPIES MAY BE OBTAINED FROM THE EDITOR, BRUCE PUBLISHING CO., 400 N. BROADWAY, MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN 53211. (GM)
