Mountain View Housing Study

This study evaluated new homes built by the Cook Inlet Housing Authority (CIHA) and a local contractor that are heated with boilers or furnace. Researchers examined the energy efficiency, homeowner comfort, indoor air quality, and humidity control of the homes. The project is jointly funded by the Cook Inlet Housing Authority and CCHRC.

Evaluating Ventilation Systems & IAQ

CCHRC monitored 100 homes in 3 different climatic regions for relative humidity, particulates, and VOC's. The goal was to provide an evaluation of the extent to which ventilation strategies, house characteristics, location, and other factors affected indoor air quality.

Healthy Homes in Alaska

The purpose of this program was to demonstrate cost-effective, preventative measures to correct health hazards in the homes that lead to serious upper respiratory illness in children. It also addressed how changes in indoor air quality affected the health of residents.
