Project Summary: Prairie Mechanical Corporation recently completed an indoor air quality project at Ameristar Casino aimed at improving Air Distribution, Ventilation, Controls, and Filtration.  Six new air handling units were added to the Vessel to increase heating and cooling capacity.  In addition, the existing pre-heat and heating coils were replaced to allow for more ventilation during the winter months.  The new air handling units have 4” deep MERV 8 pre-filters and 12” deep MERV 14 filters to remove air particulates of all sizes.  Indoor Air Quality sensors were installed throughout the casino allowing control of ventilation based on measured contaminate levels.
