Evaluating the link between retrofits and health
In recognition of ecobeco’s continuing commitment to health and energy efficiency, the National Center for Healthy Housing has selected ecobeco as the general contractor for the Housing and Energy Attributes Linked To Health through Retrofits (HEALTH-R) Study. In this study, ecobeco will implement the Breathe Easy Home Indoor Air Quality System in the homes of 24 children with asthma. NCHH will then monitor the children against a control group to determine the health impacts of the retrofits. ecobeco will perform energy audits and coordinate the installation of insulation, air sealing, HVAC upgrades, duct sealing, and more.
