SMACNA has launched WeAreWhatWeBreathe.com, a new web resource designed to raise public awareness for indoor air pollution and how indoor air quality (IAQ) improvements can help improve occupants’ health.
This comprehensive site is a destination for private and public stakeholders to explore how ventilation, airflow, and indoor air quality impact schools, homes, and office settings. Visitors can learn about the Ventilation Verification assessment, an essential physical examination of a building’s HVAC system made by trained and certified HVAC or Testing, Adjusting & Balancing technicians. The site also includes a guide to identifying federal and state funding opportunities to support HVAC system improvements and a locator to find a trained local HVAC professional.
“The pandemic shined a much-needed light on indoor air quality and some of the major health concerns arising in our schools, homes, and workplaces,” said SMACNA’s Chief Executive Officer Aaron Hilger. “As a standard-setting organization, SMACNA is proud to play a leading role in addressing the impact of poor ventilation and air quality on our lives. We hope this website will be a helpful resource while instilling a sense of urgency for building owners and school systems to provide tenants with the clean, quality air they deserve.”
