With most people spending an average of 94% of their time indoors, enclosed spaces have a significant influence on our quality of life. COVID-19 has elevated topics like indoor air quality and safety into mainstream discussions, but experts have studied the science of indoor elements like air quality, temperature, lighting and noise for many years.

The Healthy Spaces with Trane Technologies podcast will explore the expansive world of indoor environmental quality from the inside out. The host, Rasha Hasaneen – leader of innovation and the Center for Healthy & Efficient Spaces at Trane Technologies – will talk with experts and disruptors who are challenging our indoor spaces to be better for people and better for the world. They include smart city academics, sustainability and energy efficiency experts, architectural engineers, and scientists who specialize in indoor environments. Together, they will talk about what a healthy and efficient space really is, which cutting-edge innovations are set to change the world and why these conversations are more important now than ever.

In the end, creating healthy indoor spaces has the potential for a positive impact on humans, the climate and the economy. Through this podcast, you will learn to expect more of indoor environments in all the spaces you live, work and play.

    The Win-Win for Human and Planetary Health

    The Win-Win for Human and Planetary Health

    Are we able to reimagine a world where clean air, water, and food are available to all? Where economies are focused on health and wellbeing, where cities are livable, and people have control over their health and the health of the planet?

    These are the questions being asked by the World Health Organization to focus attention on the urgent actions needed to keep humans and the planet healthy.

    Innovations for Healthy and Efficient Spaces

    Throughout our podcast series we have explored the link between indoor air quality and quality of life. In this episode, we dive deeper into how some strategies for improving indoor air quality can have a taxing effect on building efficiency, and how innovation and technology is evolving to address it.


    Manish Sharma, Vice President and Chief Technology and Product Officer at Honeywell Building Technologies, joins us to talk about how the pandemic has accelerated innovation and technology in this space. And, how building owners and engineers are engaging on the topic and recognizing the value of monitoring other parameters of indoor air quality, beyond carbon dioxide.

    The (Bus) Ride to Efficient and Equitable Cities

    The (Bus) Ride to Efficient and Equitable Cities

    According to the EPA, transportation was responsible for 29% of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions in 2019. In this episode we will look specifically at mass transit and the advancements in technology that are lowering its impact on the environment.

    But, beyond the air quality outside, mass transit authorities must also balance increased passenger interest in keeping the air on the inside clean and building back trust among riders who shied away from mass transit at the height of the pandemic. Jared Schnader with CALSTART and Trane Technologies’ Dwayne Cowan join this episode to take an inside out look at the relationship between air quality, equitable mass transit and quality of life.

    The Show Must Go On

    The Show Must Go On

    Sports and entertainment venues were among the first places to close their doors during the pandemic and often the last ones to open up. During that time many researched and learned ways to minimize the spread of the virus and outfitted their facilities to protect employees and patrons. The time-tested mantra that “the show must go on” never rang truer than it does today – with a goal to get people who work in the sports and entertainment sector back on the job, and bring people together to enjoy their favorite pastimes once more.

    In this episode, Melanie Koch, director of commercial at the International WELL Building Institute, shares what she learned as she partnered with different venues over the last couple of years and how her organization is helping facilities prepare and communicate the steps they have taken.

    Home Sweet (Healthy) Home

    Most people believe that the quality of air inside their homes is better than the air outside. However, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports that indoor air pollutants are two to five times higher indoors. This statistic really hits home today as many of us spend an extraordinary amount of time in our homes, whether it be cooking, sleeping, relaxing and more recently – working.

    Getting Smart about Schools

    Getting Smart about Schools

    The statement “back to school” never meant more than it did in 2021 as many students returned to their school buildings for the first time in about a year and a half. There was an abundance of unknowns, including uncertainty around the state of the facilities. Many stakeholders questioned if school buildings themselves were healthy enough to prepare students and teachers for learning success.
