A Fellow of the American Institute of Architects, a Building Biology Environmental Consultant and published author, Paula Baker-Laporte shares what the hack home ventilation is and why you should be concerned about it. Paula reveals the consequences of not having enough ventilation at home and how much fresh air is required. She’ll examine the ways Building Biology differs from conventional wisdom on ventilation.
You’ll learn what ‘breathable’ walls are and if opening windows is enough to get an adequate amount of fresh air. Paula will explore something called an HRV and reveal if there are any downsides to having one; especially in new construction. Finally, Paula shares simple things everyone can today do to assure better air quality; even if you’re not in a position to buy a new home, do extensive renovations, or are in a rental property.
