There are few things more important than the air we breathe, and too often this topic is neglected when speaking of how we build our homes. Indoor Air Quality affects the health and comfort of our homeowners. Achieving a high-quality indoor environment involves careful choices of design, layout, and materials
Green Building encourages use of products and materials that reduce or eliminate these sources of indoor pollution. These include a wide range of products such as low-VOC paint, solvent-free adhesives, and water-based wood finishes that not only eliminate many of the suspected and known carcinogens, but often perform better than traditional products.
The quality of indoor air depends on well-designed ventilation and humidity control, which goes hand in hand with energy conservation and longevity of the buildings.
