Sick Building

November 16, 2011 Healthy Buildings Healthy Homes

Windows are closing all over Maine, keeping out the chill night air but keeping in a host of molds, toxic gasses, and asthma-inducing particulates. How do we stay warm, keep our energy costs down and breathe fresh air at the same time?

Join our dialogue about curing unhealthy buildings and building green buildings for the future on Wednesday, November 16th at 10:00 AM.

We invite your calls and email with questions, comments and horror stories about sick buildings.
