What’s the Cost of a Healthy Home? EETD Researchers Try to Find Out

California’s residential ventilation requirements are designed to balance healthy home ventilation with efficient energy use, but some studies suggest that whole-house ventilation systems don’t always meet their expected performance in either category. Looking at the installed system to identify deficiencies and offer solutions can help homeowners.
