The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) says you can breathe easy in its net-zero energy house. After 15 months of monitoring, researchers report that even with its airtight construction, IAQ in the two-story home that serves as a laboratory is better than the IAQ in new, conventionally built houses.
The REME Halo™ whole-home air purifier from RGF® Environmental Group Inc. has earned a reputation among contractors not only for its ability to improve IAQ, but also for its ease of installation and stellar customer support.
It outlines the skills and knowledge a person should possess and be able to demonstrate in the area of IAQ practice
