Indoor Air Quality

In the winter of 2017, Hoonah Indian Association undertook an indoor air quality study of particulate matter 2.5 (PM2.5) and carbon monoxide (CO). This study sought to quantify PM2.5 and CO in households, and to quantify or document underlying drivers of indoor air quality issues. Through the study we surveyed 65 homes, and a subset of those homes received a PM2.5 monitor and a CO monitor. Along with the survey homeowners were given a brochure on the intent of the study, and how they may improve their indoor air quality.  Our results showed households with stoves greater than 20 years old had significantly higher emissions of PM2.5 than houses with stoves less than 20 years old. We also found a need for weatherization and ventilation upgrades.
