Course description:  The quality of a home’s indoor environment can have a big impact on occupant health. The EPA estimates that the indoor air quality in a home can be 5 to 10 times worse than outdoor air pollution. Learn what contributes to poor indoor air quality, the health effects of indoor pollutants on occupants and what can be done to improve the air in new and existing homes.

Learning Objectives:

  • We will explain the benefits of living in a home that has good indoor air quality and help architects evaluate the benefits of a ‘healthy home’ and its features that distinguish it.
  • Distinguish common indoor air pollutant sources.
  • Identify respiratory and neurological problems that indoor air quality can impact and review programs that promote improved indoor air quality.
  • Uncover educational resources on improving indoor air quality and identify features in a home that improve the indoor air quality.
  • A summary of how Rhode Island Energy technical support and energy enhancement incentives and rebates will be discussed to help achieve improvements.
