Donations help fuel many projects, including sustainable prototype houses in rural Alaska, renewable energy tests, and the production of educational videos, publications and multimedia. Your contribution to CCHRC makes change happen by providing valuable support to our research efforts.
Residential Indoor Air Quality Study
Ventilation is a key component of healthy indoor air quality, with a recent trend toward higher ventilation standards (reflected in the latest version of ASHRAE Standard 62.2). However, cold climate regions face the challenge of achieving healthy IAQ in homes while managing high energy costs.
This project looks at new ventilation standards and recent IAQ research to help inform homebuilders, architects, engineers, and other housing professionals. The project will include a literature review and interviews with experts and will provide recommendations for next steps in IAQ research.
