Dedicated To Green Living – Indoor Air Quality

November 25th, 2009 by Altaire Townhomes


On average, Americans spend 90% of their time indoors.  We know about the importance of breathing clean air outdoors, but it is equally important to come home to a healthy interior environment as well.

That is one of the reasons that Indoor Air Quality, or IAQ, is an important factor in the rating system developed by Build It Green.  Chemicals emitted from building materials can be a potential source of health problems if they are not properly addressed. Chemical off-gassing and VOC (volatile organic compounds) can be hazardous and create an unhealthy living environment for you and your family.

By using building materials which address these potential problems, Altaire has taken positive steps to improve the Indoor Air Quality of your new home.
