Indoor airPLUS Program

April 18, 2018

ActiveWest Builders is proud to be in partnership with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Indoor airPLUS Program. Through this voluntary partnership, AWB has committed to promoting Indoor airPLUS qualified homes that provide homeowners with improved indoor air quality. Clean air is good for everyone’s health, but it can be especially important to those with chronic respiratory conditions.

Indoor airPLUS builds on the foundation of EPA’s ENERGY STAR requirements for new homes and provides additional construction specifications to provide comprehensive indoor air quality protections in new homes. To earn the Indoor airPLUS label, a home must meet strict guidelines set by the EPA for reducing poor indoor air quality. AWB was one of the first builders in the region to earn this label on a series of homes.

Construction specifications include the careful selection and installation of:

  • moisture control systems
  • heating, ventilating and air-conditioning systems
  • combustion-venting systems
  • radon resistant construction
  • low-emitting building materials
