Health@Home: Ventilation, Ventilation, Ventilation
June 18, 2020 | 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM EDT
The Health@Home webinar series consists of four webinars that provide affordable housing rehabilitation specialists and program managers with information on integrating healthy housing techniques into their rehabilitation projects and best practices from practitioners who have successfully implemented these techniques.
Ensuring adequate ventilation is a central element of a healthy home, where indoor pollutants can be two to five times higher than outdoors. Increasing the supply of fresh air can help reduce exposure to indoor asthma triggers, allergens, and other contaminants. This session focused on helping residents reduce exposure to contaminants, allergens, and pests by making sure homes are easily cleaned.
This was the first webinar in the series. It covered Healthy Housing Principles 4 and 5.
This training series enabled participants to:
- Become familiar with the Health@Home guidelines
- Design and implement rehabilitation programs that integrate Healthy Housing Principles
- Update rehabilitation standards to include healthy housing measures
Who Should Attend?
This training was intended for affordable housing developers and housing program managers interested in integrating healthy homes and/or energy retrofits with healthy principles in one or more projects.
