Research has found that in homes across America, the quality of indoor air can be worse than outdoor air. That's because many homes are being built and remodeled tighter--some with improved ventilation systems to provide fresh air exchange. We are using more products and furnishings containing compounds sensitive to some occupants. You don't have to be a building scientist to deal with the quality of air in your home. However, you should understand a few basics to get you started. This project was developed to provide basic but comprehensive information to consumers to get a handle on indoor air quality.
