IAQ & Energy 2021
December 8-9, 2021
Augusta Civic Center, Augusta, Maine*

*We are hopeful that by December, the COVID-19 global pandemic will have abated enough for us to safely host the event indoors.  Should pandemic conditions worsen, the IAQ & Energy 2021 Conference will be held as an on-line, live streamed event.

Back to Basics!

Thanks to the pandemic, everyone is more aware now than ever before about the impact of indoor air quality on human health.  So in 2021, the IAQ & Energy Conference will go “back to basics.”  What does healthy indoor air quality mean?  What pollutants are commonly found indoors and how are they dealt with?  How do we create healthy environments in both homes and commercial buildings?  What are the strategies to design, construct, operate and maintain buildings that are both healthy and energy-efficient? 


December 8, 2021:  Basics of IAQ in Homes

December 9, 2021:  Basics of IAQ in Schools and Commercial Buildings
