     willing to take a diffe
rent view of Building Science. As New Code
     requirements and knowledge of the HERS Index 
becomes main stream,
     homes are becoming "tighter" with less and less air infill 
and exfiltration.
     With a serious increase in Asthma, Allergies Dust Mites and Pollutants,
     home owners and buyers are very sensitive to air quality and a healthy
     home. Duct sealing and testing requirements are being put in place
     focusing on Clean Fresh Air, 
Indoor Air Quality and a Comfortable Home.
     Using the technological resources available to us, it is imperative, now
     more than ever that you acquire the knowledge base and certifications to
     to assure the 
Health, Safety and Well Being of the future Home Buyer and
     current Home Owner.
