Weatherization & indoor air quality

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The WAP program has an opportunity to impact the IAQ of thousands of homes a year. Within the constraints of the allowable funds and the energy focus of the program, WAP workers are required to consider health and safety when working in a home, and to have their work at a minimum do no harm. Some conditions are allowed to be rectified even if they do not directly provide energy savings. This new guidance includes some major changes from old guidance. This will result in grantees developing new plans on how they will implement this guidance. These plans must be in place prior to Program Year 2011, although the requirement that Standard 62.2 be used for determining ventilation does not take effect until Jan. 1, 2012.
