Home Ventilating Institute and The Healthy House Institute Form Partnership
Indoor air quality is crucial to healthy homes, and mechanical ventilation is a primary means of achieving it. The Home Ventilating Institute (HVI) and the Healthy House Institute (HHI) are proud to announce their newly formed partnership with the goal to clearly impart an understanding of the principles of residential ventilation and an awareness of the technologies available to facilitate it.
Consumers are hungry for information on how to improve ventilation in today's tighter homes while conserving energy and making wise equipment choices. This partnership will help to promote healthy living and the benefits of leading a greener lifestyle all while providing consumers with the information they desire. "It is the goal of both organizations to promote a healthier living environment and this partnership will help us both reach that target," said Jacki Golike, CAE, Executive Director for HVI. "We will be collaborating to reach consumers with the information they need to make their homes greener and healthier cost-effectively through better indoor air quality," remarked Allen Rathey, President of the Healthy House Institute.
HVI and HHI will provide expertise and technical knowledge for each other. "We are pleased to be associated with the extensive technical knowledge and depth of expertise represented by HVI and its members," said Rathey. "This is a great opportunity for HVI to reach out to the general public using HHI's trusted name," noted Golike. "The public looks at HHI as a trusted source to find information on ways to obtain better indoor air quality and we are pleased to have the opportunity to partner with them," said Golike.
