Event Description

In this webinar, Miller will present results of her recent EPA-funded CHEER study on Energy Efficiency Retrofits, Respiratory Health, and Indoor Air Quality. Results show an association between self-reported respiratory symptoms and increased residential air exchange rates in urban areas. Additional webinar topics include how wildfires an impact indoor air quality in homes, why exhaust ventilation in homes is needed for removing combustion air pollutants from cooking and specifically in passive homes, and other pertinent indoor air quality topics for today's green building professional including the ideal residential ventilation system for the future that will improve indoor air quality and minimize energy costs.
