Building Air Capabilities

The University of Idaho has dozens of major buildings supporting campus operations and they vary greatly in terms of their heating, ventilation and cooling (HVAC) systems. Facilities technicians regularly service and maintain these systems to ensure safe and efficient operations. University buildings can generally be categorized into three groups, reflecting the differences in the capabilities of their supporting HVAC systems:

Building Type 3

These buildings use 100% outside air on a routine basis, primarily in support of key research activity. No inside air is recirculated. The fresh air is heated or cooled, as needed, and distributed through the building, meeting both comfort and research needs, and appropriately meeting ASHRAE guidelines for building operations.

  • Holm Research Center 
  • Renfrew Hall
  • College of Natural Resources
  • Physical Education Building
  • McClure Hall 
  • Engineering/Physics Building
  • Hazmat (Hazardous Material Storage)
  • Agriculture Biotechnology
  • Gauss/Johnson Engineering
  • Integrated Research and Innovation Center

Building Type 2

These buildings recirculate inside air and supplement it with fresh air from outside. To further mitigate COVID-19 concerns, we are optimizing the amount of fresh air brought in, serving both health and comfort needs within the operating capabilities of the HVAC system, and enhancing the benefits of the system that already appropriately meets ASHRAE guidelines for building operations.

Building Type 1

These buildings are not outfitted with a centralized HVAC system. Stand-alone heating or cooling systems may be in operation in given spaces, but no large air handler serves the building. Outside fresh air is only introduced into the building through operable windows. Occupants are encouraged to take advantage of additional outside air when conditions allow.
