Abstract

The Bonneville Power Administration was among the first federal agencies to recognize that the quality of indoor air may affect people's health and habits. With this recognition has come several research projects, environmental assessments, and program features geared toward understanding and mitigating any potential effects that may result from the agencies energy conservation programs. Program features include minimum requirements for mechanical ventilation in new homes, structural source control techniques in new homes, subsidized radon mitigation in existing homes, and public education activities to encourage participants to make informed decisions about indoor air quality and energy conservation measures. We review evaluations of conservation programs that include various pieces of the indoor air quality process. We also review follow ups of experimental mitigation techniques to see how well consumers understood the equipment, and we apply a simple statistical model to Bonneville's radon data base to forecast consumer participation in response to the program's age and radon exposure.
