Indoor Air Quality and How Ventilation is Critical to Improving the Human Condition in the Built Environment
Nick Agopian - Vice President Sales & Marketing
Renewaire - Waunakee, Wisconsin
About this Program:
As we continue to build tighter, more heavily insulated homes, we are learning that significant levels of air pollutants can be trapped inside. With Americans spending approximately 90 percent of their time indoors where the air quality can be up to five times worse than outdoor air, we must design effective ventilation systems with trusted, accurate product performance. Presenter will explain why you should be concerned and what you can do to ensure healthier homes, including selecting certified ventilation products.
