Recent indoor air quality research is redefining the levels of pollutants that impact our health, cognition and productivity. The cost of poor air quality is staggering, exceeding the cost of a person’s annual energy requirements. Participants in this webinar will learn how poor indoor air quality impacts our health, productivity and cognition. Potential improvement of health, productivity and cognition relative to current ventilation standards will be discussed. New metrics that define cognition improvement and pollutant exposure are presented. Finally, field data from several homes using the new IAQ metrics are presented, with a comparison between homes with CERV smart ventilation and conventional “leaky” homes.
