Ventilation and Air Filtration 

The air handling systems in Krannert Center have been reviewed, and are providing mechanical ventilation in accordance with ASHRAE 62.1 and CDC recommendations for HVAC operation during the pandemic. Filters have been upgraded to MERV-13, which is very close to HEPA filtration. Standard filtration in households ranges between MERV-4 to MERV-13. In general, under normal operation all spaces in Krannert Center including the lobby and theatres have a complete air exchange every 15 minutes (+/- 10 minutes) based on the mode of operation (heating versus cooling). 

Our facility is cleaned daily by a dedicated building operations team.
