DEFINING

HEALTHY FOR Homes

 

 

The "healthy homes" discussion seems to be fed from two sources. One is the realization that while stricter energy-efficiency requirements result in tighter homes that offer reduced air infiltration and thermal transfer, paying attention to best practices for fresh air ventilation and filtration may be lax, subjecting occupants to poor (read: unhealthy) indoor air quality (IAQ). Recent studies have shown poor IAQ can lead to health issues, exacerbate existing medical conditions, and negatively affect school and work performanceThe second source is part of a larger discussion of “wellness.” For at least a decade, builders and designers have been speaking about and responding to homebuyers’ desires for indoor-outdoor connectivity, more natural light, and community amenities such as gyms, spas, hiking and biking trails, and other elements that promote physical and emotional wellness.
