Episode 5 – Healthy Homes
8.30pm, RTÉ One, Monday 22nd November
Healthier houses are an important step to help mitigate climate change, with Irish homes responsible for one quarter of overall energy use and 10% of greenhouse gas emissions. As well as reducing a home’s emissions, modern ventilation and insulation systems are key to improving air quality in houses, benefiting the health of the buildings themselves and the health of the people who live and, now more frequently than ever, work in them.
In this episode we look at the ventilation systems of new build and deep energy retrofit homes and investigate how the latest Irish research can help us reap the benefits of living in a healthier, more comfortable house.
And in Curious Chronicles, Fergus transports us to ancient Turkey, and a site of animal sacrifice which has been demystified by geological understanding and our appreciation of fresh air….
Next up on @10Things_ToKnow About, we meet the researchers monitoring ventilation and indoor air quality in #HealthyHomes – Mon 29th Nov, 8.30pm on @RTEOne 📺🏡🌍@SEAI_ie @EPAIreland @GeolSurvIE @IrishResearch @hea_irl @teagasc #LoveIrishResearch#10thingstoknowabout pic.twitter.com/BKA1HnoUd8
