The City of Fort Collins Healthy Sustainable Homes Program wants to help improve your health. Since we spend the majority of our time indoors, the quality of that air is going to have a significant impact on our health.  Especially for people who have or are at risk for respiratory problems, the quality of the air indoors is a mitigating factor in their health and quality of life.

The Healthy Sustainable Homes Program needs volunteers to help Fort Collins residents identify problems with their indoor air quality, and educate them on steps that can be taken to improve the situation.

Individuals typically spend 65-90% of their times indoors and the indoor air quality is typically 70% worse than the outdoor air quality.
