Kitchen Exhaust: #1 Tool to Control Your HOMEChem

Corbett Lunsford

Grace and Corbett Lunsford demonstrate the best way to design and select your kitchen exhaust system, using the #TinyLab's own Broan ventilation components. The ACE130SS range hood (new model BCSEK1SS) paired with the 8" Make-Up Air Unit means perfect control over the indoor environment, the chemistry, and the health of their family.

The Nasty Side Effects of Chlorine Bleach in Homes

Corbett Lunsford

Chlorine is an ingredient in bleach, which many people use to clean surfaces, dishes, and clothing at home. Turns out, it's not as clean as we thought- learn how to control your HOMEChem by knowing what happens when chrlorine in bleach reacts with the stuff indoors, and what it might be doing to your family.

Featuring HOMEChem scientists Marina Vance, Delphine Farmer, and Richard Corsi.

OZONE: the Original Villain of Indoor Chemistry

Corbett Lunsford

Indoor Air Quality is being explored at breakneck speed with the HOMEChem Experiment, and not surprisingly, ozone (O3) is proving to be the original villain in the complex system of interactions that make the air we breathe much more worrisome than anyone guessed. Featuring HOMEChem scientists Marina Vance, Delphine Farmer, Charlie Weschler, and Richard Corsi.

Heroes of HOMEChem: Richard Corsi, Indoor Air Quality Researcher

Corbett Lunsford

Meet Dr. Richard Corsi, the Frontiersman of HOMEChem.

Richard L. Corsi is Chair of the Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin and holds the Joe J. King Chair in Engineering #2.  He is a Distinguished Alumnus of Humboldt State University (2006) and of the College of Engineering at UC Davis (2016).  Dr. Corsi’s research focuses on sources, fate, human exposure and innovative control strategies related to indoor air quality. In recent years his team has focused significantly on indoor ozone chemistry and the nexus of building energy conservation and indoor air quality.  He currently oversees a large grant to study indoor air quality in high schools and to develop low cost solutions to related problems for school districts.
