Vision 2020 chair Dr. Marilyn Black, founder of the Greenguard Environmental Institute, talks about the indoor environmental challenges we face today, and how we will solve them.
To avoid significant health or comfort issues, energy use and IAQ must have equal priority in building design and operation.
Energy upgrades should include discussions of IAQ and health.
To ensure healthy homes, we need to consider the nexus of indoor air quality, building science, material toxicants, green chemistry, and energy efficiency, says UL/Greenguard's Marilyn Black.
Combat indoor air pollution through these simple strategies.
Thirty-two state and local governments, tribes, and non-profit organizations will receive funds for their efforts to improve indoor air quality.
A tight envelope may exacerbate indoor air quality problems, so what should you watch for?
In the second half of a two-part Q&A, researcher, author, and educator Vivian Loftness asks: How many days a year can your building "surf" on the environment and going without mechanical heating or cooling?
Few people walk around with a light meter—but everyone should. in the first of a two-part Q&A, researcher, author, and educator Vivian Loftness looks into why design and building pros need to be more attuned to the metrics of indoor environmental quality.
