hvac defects and asthma


Recommended Posts

I was invited to a meeting with a local group of doctors to talk about some of the problems I've seen in hvac systems. It seems they had never heard of such problems could affect their patients, but agreed that return air leaks, improper dryer venting, etc. could increase asthma symptoms.

One of the doctors suggested a study to see if there was a correlation between the two by testeing if sysmptoms let up after repairs were made and asked if we would want to participate.

The question now is to set up a set of standards the hvac, and house, must meet to be considered "fixed". Would anyone know any resources to contact. The one I first thought of, Building Science Corp, only has a mailing address, so I'll have to write them. Sorry for the long post and thanks for any info you can give.
