Create a cleaner air sanctuary in your home for smoke season [Power Hour - Ep. 6 featuring Hunter Burbidge of WA State Dept. of Health]

by Lacy Stockton | Jul 20, 2021

Our featured guest, Hunter Burbidge, indoor air quality epidemiologist at the Washington State Department of Health, joins Scott Stanford (Chelan PUD commercial energy advisor), Sergio Sanchez (Chelan PUD energy conservation specialist), and your host, Lacy Stockton, to answer your questions about prepping your home for smoke season.

We chat about:

  • What can I do today to keep wildfire smoke from entering my home?
  • Why should I avoid breathing in wildfire smoke?
  • What type of air filters and purifiers should I use?
  • Should I run my central air system continuously during a smoke event? And should I keep the doors in my home open or closed?
  • What do I do if it's hot and I only have a window AC to keep me cool during a smoke event?
  • What home improvements are most important to improving my indoor air quality?
  • Does Chelan PUD have rebates for that equipment? 
  • and more
