A US school had recently had all the windows sealed to increase energy efficiency. It is believed that this lack of circulation and lack of maintainence of the ventilation system had caused a reduced air quality. This was termed the ‘sick building syndrome’. Many students and teachers reported symptoms such as headache, nausea, dizziness, blurred vision and a metallic taste. When the air quality was attended to by cleaning the ventilation system and increasing circulation, the incidence of symptoms was greatly reduced but still present. Authorities are unsure as to the exact cause of the poor air quality.
