High Performance Ventilation and IAQ Solutions for a Healthy Home
Indoor air quality (IAQ) is more than just a green building buzzword. Poor IAQ is such a serious issue that the EPA lists it as a top five environmental threat. Because the increase in IAQ problems seems linked to building tighter houses, the answer may seem simple: stop building tight houses.
Unfortunately, it is not that simple. As energy costs escalate and energy conservation becomes a matter of national security, energy codes respond and specify tighter, more energy-efficient houses. Fortunately, tight houses and superior IAQ can go together. Mechanical ventilation is easy and a cost effective way to remove bad air from a house.
