Low VOC Paint:
VOC stands for Volatile Organic Compounds. These are unstable carbon-containing compounds, that when they react with the air, produce pollutants and health risks. Paints are the second largest source of VOC emissions in the atmosphere after automobiles. Paints manufactured with low or no amounts of VOC’s can reduce air pollutants and health risks.

95% Energy-Efficient Furnace:
All Healthy Homes houses are equipped with 95% energy efficient furnaces and programmable thermostats. These furnaces have the ability to recapture heat that is wasted in traditional furnaces through a process called “condensing”. In climates such as Central Ohio that historically have severe winters, these types of heating units provide energy cost savings.
