You spend most of your time in your home, which is why it’s very important to make sure the air quality in your home is the best it can be. Sometimes, the air within a home can be far more polluted than the air outside. EPA studies show the level of indoor pollutants may be two to five times higher than outside air.1

 

Start with ventilation:
Natural ventilation is a great alternative to air conditioning in moderate climates. Our TruScene® insect screens let in over 25% more fresh air than a standard Andersen conventional insect screen*, allowing more fresh air and ventilation into your home.

Other ways to enhance air quality:

  • When decorating, choose healthy products and install with care to limit the amount of toxins and pollutants in the home.
  • Choose low-emitting adhesives and ventilate carpet during installation to limit organic gas release.
  • Ventilate draperies, paneling, pressed-wood furniture, and cabinetry during installation, as they may be treated with formaldehyde-based finishes.

Seeing the Light

One of the most effective ways for improving the interior environment and occupant health is by strengthening connections to the outside.
