Jay Egg was fascinated when his wife, Kristy Egg, explained that epidemiological studies can be thought of for requiring seat belts in cars, and for the banning of lawn darts. He was even more fascinated to learn about Legionnaires Disease and Pontiac Fever, and why HVAC systems can be such a breeding ground for them.
Ellen Rohr interviews the duo to discuss their ongoing work with IAPMO's Legionella Task Group, what the focus of their efforts has been during the COVID-19 pandemic and the progress they've seen in the prevention of Legionnaires' disease. Plus, Jay and Kristy share their personal heroes and missions, as well as what makes them happy in life and our industry!
Jay is a consultant and designer of geothermal HVAC systems, in addition to being author of two books and several articles on the subject. He is the Founder of Egg Systems, and focuses on geothermal consulting, engineering, and contracting technologies.
Kristy is a Registered Nurse and a public health and environmental health student learning to live with the disability of epilepsy and change paths mid-life.
