Homes Needed for Indoor Air Quality Research

Air quality inside our homes is one of the leading areas of concern by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Garages, where we store our cars, often also house all types of solvents, paints and other chemicals, are of particular interest to researchers.

 

The Indoor Climate Research and Training program is conducting an ASHRAE-funded study on how to reduce the negative impact of attached garages on the air quality in our living spaces.

 

Homes in Champaign Country with attached garages are needed for this study.  The testing will last 3-4 weeks and will involve multiple home visits by researchers.
