Our third and final installment of the Indoor Air Quality Marker Time videos. In retrospect, this should have been the first of the IAQ series. Oh well. As Nic will tell you, we covered this topic about the homes first rather than things like recycled materials and solar panels because we believe it is overlooked too often in well built “green” homes today. The health of the home owners and their freinds and family is very important to us and we think you will agree.
In one last note, I have read multiple case studies and talked to the owners of healthy, green homes that have said that they rarely get sick any longer. This is hardly scientific, but really struck a chord with me. Enjoy Nic’s first Market Time segment.
Highlights from Indoor Air Quality (Health) Marker Time
- We spend 80% of our time indoors
- The average US home’s IAQ is 2-5 times worse than outdoor air
- A combination of low off-gassing materials, fresh air ventilation and MERV filtration dramatically improves the IAQ of a 100K House
- Providing a healthy indoor environment for families is important
If you enjoyed reading this post I can promise you'll love our new writing over at Postgreen Homes. Yeah, we know that's the same thing your favorite band said and their new album is nowhere near as good as their early stuff, but seriously, we are actually still getting better.
There also isn't much conversation to be had here . . . at least not with us. So come on over to the Postgreen Homes Blog and tell us what you think of our new(ish) digs and crazy ideas. We will be sure to tell you what we think of your opinion.
