ECCO has improved the heating and cooling units in its major meeting facilities by installing MERV-13 filters and UVC lamps. UVC lamps kill airborne pathogens as air passes through the ventilation systems. The enhanced filters and lamps will treat the air in Walters Chapel, the Barton Meeting Room, Lower Lyles West Meeting Room, and Lyles Hall.
In addition to these improvements, new air handlers were installed in Lyles Hall to provide cooling during the warmer months of the year. The new air handlers replace the old evaporative coolers.
