Project Sustainability

Each month, the show welcomes a new guest who will unpack a specific topic, spanning multiple episodes. Host Peggy Smedley will dive into her guest’s desire to provide alternatives that will empower each of us on what it means to have a healthy home. Simply all the innovations from energy, air, water, lighting, security, appliances, and more that impact our homes.

With a focus on technology—and how it works in the home—listeners will gain a deeper understanding of what’s coming next and what’s already possible today. Determined to give a glimpse into the future, Smedley ends every series with the same question: How can we do even more simply by managing our energy consumption to help make the world healthier, safer, and greener today and for future generations?

Peggy Smedley and Chris Howells, senior training and development manager, AprilAire Academy, talk about the importance of indoor air quality in our homes. He says we take on average 20,000 breaths per days, which is 3,000 pounds of air we are putting into our body, and we spend 90% of our times indoors. With all this in mind, it is important to understand the quality of air we are breathing.

They also discuss:

  • Four major components of the indoor air quality industry.
  • How humidity and temperature impact the survival of bacteria and viruses.
  • Training for professionals coming into the homes and training for homeowners.
