Chapter 6: Conclusions & Recommendations


As California seeks to reduce the environmental impact of homes while protecting the indoor environment, it must improve the energy efficiency of homes, and tightening homes to reduce infiltration is a straightforward means of doing so. Technical products developed from the RESAVE program research are discussed with their specific findings. Key areas are industrial cooperation, air leakage, indoor contaminants, and optimized ventilation.
