Energy Crisis Impact
In the 1970’s, the energy crisis changed the design and construction of houses and public buildings. There was rightly a new emphasis on insulation to save energy costs. Energy efficiency is both economically and environmentally important, and there are health benefits from warm, dry homes. Although energy efficient buildings have become increasingly air-tight, ventilation provision and advice has not followed suit. Without adequate ventilation, and with new sources of pollutants indoors, health issues have been associated with poor air quality.
