How Home Health Issues Could Impact Your Future via @ecobldgpulse

About a third of owner-occupied homes are at least 45 years old and another third are at least 25 years old, so two thirds or more of our homes predate modern energy codes. And with old houses, you end up with a lot of issues: energy efficiency, comfort, and indoor air quality. When I give presentations to builders and remodelers, I show slides of a basement that’s typical of what we see during building inspections. One photo shows fiberglass band-joist insulation that is black with mold and other material being carried in through air leaks from an adjacent crawl space. And because the air-handling equipment is five feet away, it effectively distributes the mold throughout the house. It’s sending up into the house everything that came in from that damp crawl space; that’s the air the occupants are breathing. That’s just one scenario, but we see similar things all the time.
