An indoor air quality survey has been conducted in a school building. Samples were collected inone room in each wing and each level on a quarterly basis beginning in August 2002 and ending
in December 2007. Levels of temperature, RH, CO2 and total airborne fungal spore
concentration were determined. Data were compared between wings and levels. Comparison of
data by wing performed to evaluate the difference in age and type of univent present had on the
temperature, RH, CO2 and total airborne fungal spore concentration. Data were also compared
for seasonal variability.
Temperature, RH, CO2 and total airborne fungal spore concentration were not statistically
significantly different between wings or level, except for a difference in temperature by level.
There were statistically significant differences in total airborne fungal spore concentrations
seasonally.
