WHOLE HOME AIR FILTRATION AND PURIFICATION
Our buildings incorporate whole house air filtration systems, which optimize indoor air quality with a controlled exchange and purification of fresh outdoor air. These filtration systems can offer HEPA quality filtration. Installation of these machines have been shown to dramatically reduce the incidence of respiratory illness, asthma and allergies which can be triggered by exposure to household dust and chemical residues present in carpeting, furniture, and other home products.
NON-TOXIC BUILDING MATERIALS
While houses are becoming more and more tight, our focus on indoor air quality begins with the careful selection of building materials. Many conventional construction products (sealants, paints/finishes, wood panels…) emit harmful vapors including formaldehyde, phthalates, PBDEs and VOCs. A big item we like to work with is solid wood cabinets and millwork with no toxic glues or adhesives rather than the conventional particleboard (MDF) or plywood cabinets (the worst source of formaldehyde in homes).
