Is My Indoor Air Quality Causing My Lips to Crack?

You might have heard this already, but humid indoor air can cause problems. Aside from being uncomfortable, high humidity can cause condensation, and condensation can lead to water damage, mold growth, and pest infestations. Air conditioners naturally reduce humidity by cooling air and forcing condensation to occur in the AC unit. However, air that’s too dry can cause problems, as well. While dry air helps keep mold from growing, it also has negative effects on organic materials such as leather and wood, not to mention human bodies. For instance, if your home’s air is too dry, you’ll probably notice your lips cracking. Here’s what you need to watch out for during winter when there’s less humidity in the air. Dry, Irritated Lips and Skin Image via Flickr by michelleoshen When the air around you is too dry, it becomes easier for the water in the outer layer of your skin to evaporate. This can create dry patches on your skin and places that feel rough, itchy, and cracked. The skin of your lips is thinner and holds a lot of moisture, so it’s more likely to crack and peel than other areas. One effective way to treat cracked lips is .....

Passive Heating By Design

By Michael Tobias Climate change is real, which is why world leaders are heading away from an energy economy that relies on fossil fuels and other less than eco-friendly resources. For example: The U.S. pledged, as part of the Paris Agreement that aims for hugely reduced reductions in global emissions, to slash harmful emissions by 26-28% by 2025. New York City has, more ambitiously, vowed to reduce greenhouse gases by 80% before 2050. Chicago has committed to be using 100% renewable energy for its City buildings by 2025. The European Union has pledged to cut emissions by 40% by 2030. The U.K., like NYC, has committed to cutting emissions by 80% by 2050. These commitments are all in keeping with the World Green Building Council (GBC) Advancing Net Zero project that aims to have all the buildings in the world using zero carbon by 2050.  Additionally, 19 city mayors have signed a declaration that all new buildings will operate with net-zero carbon by 2030, and all buildings will follow suit by 2050. What this mean, in reality, is that buildings must be built or retrofitted to be energy efficient and to use energy from renewable sources.  But it’s going to .....
