Next, he was involved with Aero Space Guidance and Control Systems at Litton Industries in California and Fuel Systems for Beech Aircraft in Boulder, Colorado.
A change in direction entered Tom into the Gas Appliance industry regarding Indoor Home Environment, Carbon Monoxide Combustion Safety. He taught over 150 seminars to Fire Departments, Property Management Companies, and Home Inspection Associations. His seminars were qualified for continuing education certificates required by REALTORS®, professional Home Inspectors, etc. During 240,000 gas appliance service calls, he confirmed that 80% of them were leaking low levels of carbon monoxide (the silent killer) into breathable indoor air space.
As a Certified Indoor Air Specialist, Tom conducted over 140,000 testing hours with EPA-approved labs, USA universities, manufacturing plants, and residential living environments proving his inventions met designed safety specifications and 63 certifications in indoor air quality and environments.
The Colorado Health Department requested Tom to perform a study on carbon monoxide poisoning relating to the Vent Free Gas Fireplace Industry. This study revealed that all gas fireplaces were leaking low levels of carbon monoxide affecting the quality of life of the inhabitants.
Tom has been awarded sixty-three certifications in Carbon Monoxide, indoor air quality, mold, venting, natural gas, and butane. He is declared by the courts of Colorado to be an expert witness.
As an inventer, Tom is credited with technology to detect trace-level carbon monoxide and reduce radon presence in the home allowing occupants a healthy indoor air environment.
Presently Tom owns True Science: Technology Done Right LLC (TSTDR) a company dedicated to the research and development of products that improve indoor air quality.
