New Report: Venting for Health 

Steven Winter Associates, Inc. (SWA) and the National Center for Healthy Housing (NCHH) studied air quality improvements from upgraded ventilation systems in multifamily high-rise housing. The research was supported by a grant from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development, and recently published by Springer Nature Group.
