The Breathe Easy Study: Health and Energy Impacts of Ventilation Improvements
Originally recorded live on 6/8/2021
Join Illinois Green Alliance for The Breathe Easy Study: Health and Energy Impacts of Ventilation Improvements. The interconnections between health, housing, and energy consumption are increasingly apparent. Energy efficiency has a well-documented positive impact on household health including decreases in asthma and cardiovascular disease and improvements in indoor air quality (IAQ), comfort, and well-being. In particular, mechanical ventilation systems can enhance healthy homes and improve indoor air quality, especially when combined with energy efficiency measures.
