BWK Goes “Green” With Facility Renewable Energy Enhancements
North Boulder Early Childhood School and Farm Contracts with Renewable Energy Company to Help Keep Children and Their Teachers Healthier
Boulder, Colorado: While the warmth of fall days linger, ten-year old Boulder Waldorf Kindergarten prepares for the future with the installation of energy-efficient and renewable heating and hot water heater systems which took place in late August. A high-efficiency modulating gas boiler, with a 95.1% (AFUE) rating was installed for heating the southern portion of the building. Also, state-of-the-art programmable thermostats, new baseboard heating and a high-efficiency hot water heater were selected that will increase heating performances at the school, and ensure that heating safety guidelines are met and surpassed. A major tune-up of the gas furnace in the northern portion of the building took place, checking performance and safety issues including proper venting, properly functioning safety controls and proper pilot and flame sensor operations. Honeywell hospital-grade air filters were installed in the furnace vents to filter mold, dust mites, pet dander, pollen and airborne bacteria and viruses - helping to keep the children and teachers healthier! New (preventative) carbon monoxide monitors/alarms were installed in 3 locations in the building. For more information about this project or further information about the school and farm, contact Dave Snow, Administrative Director, firstname.lastname@example.org.
