INDOOR AIR QUALITY

Home is where the heart is and, as it turns out, also where your health is. Creating a healthy indoor environment takes careful planning. We offer a selection of healthier indoor materials such as Low VOC paints and natural carpets and flooring. These steps add up to better indoor air quality right from the start.

BUILD IT TIGHT, VENTILATE IT RIGHT. In addition to using computer modeling to size your HVAC equipment properly, Macfarlane Homes installs an Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV) / Dehumidifier providing ventilation, filtration and dehumidification for superior indoor air quality. Unlike yesterday’s leaky homes, Structural Insulated Panel homes are extremely airtight and require mechanical ventilation. The ERV ventilation system introduces fresh air into your home in controlled amounts and exhausts stale air, reducing moisture and allergens.
