  • Indoor Air Quality

  • The Costs of Green Homebuilding

  • Spring Clean Your Indoor Air – Removing Dust from Your Home

    Spring is in the air, and so are dust, pollen and other unwanted particles that can impact health and the dusting you need to do. What is the best way to Spring Clean Your Indoor Air?
  • Plants for Clean Indoor Air?

    Horticulturists Dr. Stanley Kays, Dr. Bodie Pennisi and research associate D.S. Wang at the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Science are conducting ongoing research into the ability of houseplants to remove volatile organic compounds from the air.
  • What's In Your Water? Disinfectants Create Toxic By-products

    Although perhaps the greatest public health achievement of the 20th century was the disinfection of water, a recent study now shows that the chemicals used to purify the water we drink and use in swimming pools react with organic material in the water yielding toxic consequences.
  • Study Shows Americans Owe Five Months Of Their Lives To Cleaner Air

    A new study by researchers at Brigham Young University and Harvard School of Public Health shows that average life expectancy in 51 U.S. cities increased nearly three years over recent decades, and approximately five months of that increase came thanks to cleaner air.
  • Dry Cleaning

    Most dry-cleaning chemicals pose health hazards and are often intolerable to the chemically sensitive and to some allergic and asthmatic people.
  • Asthma Facts

    Asthma is a rapidly growing public health problem. Here are recent facts from the CDC and EPA.
  • Human Comfort Factors - Radiant Heat

    How does radiant heat, as opposed to air temperature, contribute to a proper home comfort system?
  • The Human Element in Design for Aging

    Designing healthy homes for the elderly.
  • Asthma & Allergy Friendly Certification Program Available

    The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America has developed the first Asthma Friendly product standards for plush toys, pillows, bedding, flooring, vacuum cleaners, and air purifiers.
  • Scents & Sensitivity

    While many people enjoy wearing perfumes and using scented products, there is a growing outcry from some people who claim exposure to certain fragrances, including perfumes and scented products, adversely impacts their health.
  • LEED for Homes - Q and A

    LEED for Homes is a green home certification system for assuring homes are designed and built to be energy- and resource-efficient and healthy for occupants.
  • Are You Chemically Sensitive?

    Are you sensitive to low levels of pollutants in the indoor environment? There are many people exhibiting symptoms at much lower pollution levels than the general population. This tells us that a safe level of exposure for one person is not safe for everyone.
  • UL to Launch ‘Green’ Product Testing

    UL Environment Inc. was created in response to the increase demand for environmentally sustainable products, and its services will help industries and the public make sense of "green" claims while helping manufacturers maintain transparency and credibility in the marketplace.
  • Garages

    If we still rode horses every day, we’d never have a barn attached to the house because the animal odors would be objectionable. Yet houses routinely have an attached garage which contains much more unhealthy odors.
  • Heat Recovery Ventilators - Getting Technical

    The majority of the balanced ventilation systems on the market are heat recovery ventilators (HRVs). Most HRVs consist of an insulated cabinet, a heat-recovery core, two fans, some ductwork, and a control. But not all HRVs are created equal.
  • Duct Cleaning

    In a typical forced-air system with leaky ducts and an inefficient filter, the ducts are usually contaminated with a wide variety of particulates and microorganisms—all directly exposed to the air being breathed by the occupants.
