Groups like the Building Performance Institute say that indoor air quality is rising on homeowners’ lists of concerns. Thus, the more you know about air-related problems, the better you’ll be able to spot potential concerns and snuff out existing troubles.
One good way to make sure that your air-quality work is comprehensive is to bring this form with you to jobs. It’s the checklist for compliance with the Environmental Protection Agency’s AirPlus program. The initiative goes beyond Energy Star to focus on the factors most likely to affect indoor air quality. Those factors are reflected in the form’s areas of focus, from moisture control to HVAC systems.
Even if you never bid to get your homes qualified for the AirPlus label, knowing what’s on the list should help you to reduce airborne health hazards in your clients’ homes.
