Indoor airPLUS

What are the benefits to building an Indoor airPLUS home?

Homebuyers today are increasingly concerned about the indoor air quality of their homes. Issues like mold, radon, carbon monoxide, and toxic chemicals have received greater attention than ever as poor indoor air quality has been linked to a host of health problems.

By constructing homes that meet the Indoor airPLUS specifications, builders offer homes that are designed to truly deliver better indoor air quality. Participating builders can expect higher levels of quality assurance, improved reputation, reduced callback and warranty costs, and less business risk. Partners are also eligible to access technical and marketing assistance, use Indoor airPLUS marketing materials and tools to help promote their qualified homes, and receive awards for participation and exceptional performance in the industry.
