ROCIS Range Hood Guidance Document released

The ROCIS Issue Brief, "Ducted Range Hoods: Recommendations for New & Existing Homes"tells you what to look for in a range hood, how to install it, and when it should be operated. Both consumers and building professionals will find it useful. It summarizes easy ways to help reduce your household’s exposure to cooking pollution, such as cooking on the back burner, covering pots with lids, pre-cooking with a microwave, and cooking at lower temperatures. It also provides details and resources in supplemental sections.
 

ROCIS Project Advisor Norm Anderson award creation

The Maine Indoor Air Quality Council (MIAQC) Board of Directors voted in April to create an annual award opportunity to recognize individuals and/or organizations that have made a difference for indoor air quality right here in Maine. The new award is called The Norman Anderson Leadership Award, and was given to none other than the award namesake, Norm Anderson. Norm was a key player in the formation of the Council back in the 1990's, and has worked selflessly since then to see it succeed. Thank you, Norm, for all of your hard work. To see pictures of Norm receiving his award, checkout the keynote/workshop day photo album from the recent conf erence.
