Policy Statement 22: Changing Air Filters on Main Campus


The Facilities Services HVAC Shop is responsible for changing air filters on Main Campus.


Based on manufacturer recommendations and industry-accepted standards, Facilities Services has established a preventive maintenance program to change filters on a scheduled basis. The HVAC shop receives a PM each month indicating which air filters are scheduled to be changed.


Facilities Services is responsible for changing air filters in a fiscally responsible manner balancing the industry-accepted standards with the cost and availability of resources including labor and supply.

Facilities Services does not maintain an inventory of air filters. Facilities Services manages inventory costs and storage limitations using a "just-in-time" delivery system. Filter manufacturer delivers the required supply of filters to appropriate building location at the beginning of the scheduled month.
