Evaluating Ventilation Systems & IAQ
Indoor air quality is one of the greatest challenges in cold climate homes. Not only do people spend more time indoors, but they also tend to live in more efficient, airtight homes that can trap excess moisture and pollutants indoors if not properly ventilated, leading to problems for the both the building structure and occupant health. CCHRC does extensive research on ways to design homes and mechanical systems to ensure healthy indoor air. We have assessed homes throughout Alaska, performed numerous product tests, developed climate-specific technologies, and partnered with health providers and educators to teach Alaskans about the importance of ventilation.
