IAQ Overview

Indoor air quality can make a big difference in the health and quality of life for all people in the home. Some gases, like radon and carbon monoxide, are deadly. Other air quality issues like particulate matter, allergens and molds can also negatively impact occupant health and should be controlled. The Healthy Homes Coalition helps families learn simple steps to improve air quality and avoid deadly hazards.
