Healthy Home: Air Quality (2002)

Season 3, Episode 11
Only available in Canada, United States

Dave and Yee transformed a heritage house into an energy efficient and healthy award winning home whose special ventilation system enables them to pursue their passions: keeping pets, cooking and entertaining, painting and creating stained glass pieces.

Danita Aziza and Cheryl Shour provide a healthy home service for people keen on living healthily, indoors and out. Last year, this green team did 30% more business than in the previous year.

Engineer, lecturer, and consultant Doug Harwood has been in the heating, ventilation and cooling business for more than 40 years. He weighs the pros and cons of radiant versus forced air, and tell us how to maximize the efficiency of existing heating systems.

A tightly sealed home can be a mixed blessing. Energy bills are lower, but indoor air quality can be compromised. If you’re building or renovating, a heat recovery ventilation system (HRV) may be in your future.
