Music City Center Earns 5-star Energy Rating Achievement

Award Presented by Camfil USA

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Music City Center has earned a 5-Star energy rating achievement from Camfil USA, a global air filtration specialist. The award recognizes the facility for meeting all Energy Cost Index (ECI) air filtration standards to maintain indoor air quality, while also saving energy.

Music City Center began using the Camfil Hi-Flo ES air filter in 2018 to improve the facility’s air filtration system. The product filters typical air contaminants like smoke, pollen, and dust, but also removes bacteria, fungi, and virus-bearing droplets like those associated with COVID-19. The MERV-13-rated filter is guaranteed to maintain its efficiency rating, using less energy and requiring fewer filter changes.

“The health and safety of our guests is a priority for us,” said Music City Center President and Chief Executive Officer Charles Starks. “We want to provide clean indoor air, but we also want to conserve energy and reduce waste. These filters allow us to do all of that.”

“The facility is using the most energy-efficient, longest-lasting filters available,” said Armando Brunetti, President of Camfil Americas. “By choosing the right air filters, Music City Center is benefiting from significant savings as well as demonstrating environmental responsibility.”

Music City Center is LEED Gold Certified, which signifies that the facility reduces stress on the environment by being more energy efficient. The air filters are in addition to other sustainability initiatives that include use of a green roof, a stormwater management system, and solar power to conserve water and energy, as well as recycling, donating, and composting efforts to reduce waste.
