Since November of 2019, the church has been working on the design, engineering, and now the installation of an upgraded air handling system to enhance the air quality within the sanctuary, which will maintain a consistently comfortable temperature and efficient airflow.
Stratification fans, new ductwork, and a new air-handling rooftop unit were set in place on the roof to replace the 35-year old rusting hulk of the old air-handling unit. Next, ionization units will be installed in the new sanctuary air handler and those air handlers serving other areas of the church.
These new ionization units are designed to destroy bacteria and viruses, including COVID-19, MERS, and SARS, a variety of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), particulate matter (PM2.5), ozone, CO2, and even odors in the actual space, which will provide a high degree of respiratory protection
These units have been installed in the Walker Art Gallery, US Bank Stadium, and numerous school districts throughout the metro.
The church is striving to ensure the best air quality possible for the protection of our congregation and visitors.
