Home Efficiency Genie Webinar - Understanding and Improving Indoor Air Quality

Join the City of Palo Alto Utilities Home Efficiency Genie for an upcoming webinar about indoor air quality in the home. Many of us are spending more time than ever inside our homes, so it is important to understand what causes poor air quality and what you can do to help improve it now. The presentation will be provided by Tony Jung, our seasoned Genie building science professional, who has performed over 350 in-home assessments in Palo Alto. This Genie webinar will highlight the principles of building science in which homes are approached as a system and reveal how indoor air quality is a foundation for a healthy, safe, comfortable and efficient home. You will take away valuable lessons on dangerous and unhealthy conditions like carbon monoxide, asbestos, mold, air infiltration from attics and crawl spaces and how you can protect yourself and your family. The Genie is your trusted advisor so spend an hour with their expert who can help you have a healthier home.
