EPA Indoor airPLUS
Welcome to the Indoor airPLUS Virtual Booth! Homeowners 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. Currently, with ENERGY STAR and Indoor airPLUS, builders can employ a variety of construction practices and technologies in their new homes to help address these concerns. The up-coming Indoor airPLUS-Existing Homes label gives home performance contractors similar tools to improve indoor air in the myriad of existing homes in the US. Join us on May 7 at 1 pm as we discuss how IAP-X fits into our changing world. Reach out to us during our live office hours to contact us with any questions!
Indoor airPLUS-Existing Homes will be a voluntary partnership and labeling program that helps home performance contractors improve the quality of indoor air in your clients homes by requiring practices and product specifications that minimize exposure to airborne pollutants and contaminants. Clean air is good for everyone’s health, but it can be especially important to those that have chronic respiratory conditions.
EPA is creating the Indoor airPLUS-Existing Homes label as another tool for home performance contractors to meet the growing consumer preference for improved indoor air quality in their homes. Indoor airPLUS-Existing Homes builds on the EPA’s Indoor airPLUS program for new homes and provides additional and unique specifications to provide comprehensive indoor air quality protections in existing homes. The specifications for Indoor airPLUS-Existing Homes will be released with Version 2 of Indoor airPLUS.
