The GreenHome Institute’s – “If these ducts could talk – Active Air Quality Management” – Free CE Webinar
January 11 @ 12:00 pm - 1:15 pm EST
About this event
Consumer demand for healthy homes is at an all-time high, yet examples remain rare. Professional solutions are either expensive, complicated, or don’t work as advertised. Having been involved in thousands of IAQ projects, HAVEN has seen a pattern of common issues that might be surprising until you’ve attempted a few yourself. We will share our learnings, and some repeatable methods to simplify IAQ projects that monitor air quality within the ducted system and automate it to ventilate or filter as needed. Show how this can be be repeated successfully by contractors at a fraction of the price, and be setup and managed properly thereafter.
1. Review the 3 pillars of IAQ, the biggest IAQ issues we see by climate zone and season and how it connects to LEED BD+C Homes V4 EQ Prereq Ventilation
2. Know the types of mechanical equipment commonly used to address these pillars, which may help achieve LEED BD+C Homes V4 EQ credit enhanced Ventilation
3. Articulate the common issues that arise when trying to sell, install, and manage IAQ in your customers’ homes.
4. Understand tried and true solutions that have been effective in simplifying IAQ projects so you can finally address your customers’ requests for a healthy home without the headache and achieve LEED BD+C Homes V4 EQ Prereq Ventilation.

Kevin R. Hart, CEO, HAVEN
Kevin began his career in the trades as a Journeyman Redseal Electrician. Constructing buildings and coordinating with other trades such as refrigeration/HVAC ended up being critical experiences that informed Kevin’s worldview as he entered the world of entrepreneurship. Kevin founded HAVEN (originally TZOA) at the age of 23, after experiencing high levels of carcinogenic crystalline silica dust on industrial worksites. New regulatory changes in Canada proposed to enforce safety, but there existed no convenient or affordable way to monitor exposure levels. We care about our water & food quality, but lack a tangible way to see the impact the air we breathe has on our wellbeing.Thinking bigger impact, Kevin conceptualized a wearable air quality monitor for global citizens that could crowdsource outdoor pollution data from thousands of devices onto city-wide maps in real-time, a product that won ‘best inventions of 2015’ awards from Time Magazine and Popular Science. Eventually it became clear that air quality data and the identification of problems didn’t create enough value, the problems needed solving, and without requiring changes in human behaviour. Our product line HAVEN emerged as a way to automatically improve indoor air quality (IAQ) with the insight that we can control our indoor environments in the same way we can control our indoor temperature through heating & cooling (HVAC) systems.
Lucy Cameron, Product Lead, HAVEN
Lucy’s number one passion is trying to understand people and how we can build stronger products that solve real problems for them. She was attracted to HAVEN’s vision and mission to help people live better, healthier lives almost 6 years ago. Since then, she has fallen in love with the way HVAC practices can have a profound impact on people’s health and the health and longevity of the building itself.
In her role, Lucy continues to advocate for the needs of building science professionals and their customers while leading the design of the HAVEN product experience.
