Who holds the keys to a Healthier Home? What doors appear locked? Who are the key makers?

This session will cover the key elements to a healthier home. Is it the designer, builder, sub-contractors, H/AC contractors, Rater/Advisors Code officials, product manufacturers, and/or the occupants? No surprise here, it's a combination. Let's pick the locks and discuss the various roles each key holder has in creating common failures (unhealthy conditions) and current successes that open the doors to a healthier home.
