The problem arises when occupants are forced to breathe the same air over and over in substantially airtight homes. Research clearly shows the air in our homes is filled with a variety of contaminants that can create health complications. This course will review those contaminants of concern, their impact on health and how to reduce the risk to health and wellness using whole house ventilation.
