Fugett Middle School Students Conduct Energy Audit
Mrs. Trombley’s first-period technology engineering class recently had the opportunity to participate in an energy audit of Fugett Middle School. Mr. Todd Rogers, from National Energy Education Development Project (NEED), conducted the audit. Students toured the Fugett/East boiler room and learned how the building is heated and cooled. They used various measuring instruments to check energy-related items in multiple areas throughout the school, including temperature (air and water), humidity, and lighting.
Students also learned about “vampire loads” on electrical devices, using a “Kill A Watt” monitor. They were surprised by how much energy it takes to run a microwave oven and other items!
The energy audit was made possible thanks to a grant from PECO.
