What is a Healthy Home System?


Building a healthy home means breathability. Offering the proper balance of airflow into and out of the home. The truly healthy energy efficient home requires a high level of insulation, air tightness, thermal break controlled ventilation and a competent building contractor who will design this house as a system and build it with expert craftsmanship at the right price.

A healthy energy efficient home will have these qualities:

  • Very low heating and cooling costs
  • No micro or macro climate requirements
  • Simple construction techniques
  • No uncomfortable drafts (or heat stratification)
  • Controlled ventilation (safe and healthy indoor air quality)
  • Controlled relative humidity
  • Ample amounts of natural light through high quality windows
  • Quiet
  • Naturally cooler in summer, warmer in winter

A healthy home system has several aspects that must be in place to achieve a certain level of breathability

  • Air tightness
  • Thermal breaks
  • Whole house heat recovery ventilation
  • Air-tight pressure tested duct work
  • Sealed combustion appliance
  • Zoned heating and cooling
  • Insulation
  • Proper supervision, education and training of the trades
