Spend some of your time at the Common Ground Fair learning how green building technology can improve the health of your home. Kathleen Meil of Evergreen Home Performance will give an interactive talk about indoor air quality and healthy homes in the Energy & Shelter Area FRIDAY at noon. Learn how untreated homes can concentrate mold, mildew, and other indoor air pollutants, and share strategies to eliminate the cause of allergens for good.
The key to healthy, effective home performance upgrades is remembering that your house is a system, and that you can’t change one part without affecting all the others. Tighten up a house without treating moisture problems and you’ve actually concentrated the indoor air pollutants, but treat the whole house with building science expertise and improve the safety, health, and comfort of your home.
As Marketing & Customer Relations Manager at Evergreen Home Performance, which provides energy audits and efficiency upgrades throughout coastal Maine, Meil helps homeowners understand the health impacts of energy efficiency measures. Many are surprised to learn that solving basement moisture problems can reduce the risk of asthma by 33%!
