Why Healthy Homes?

We believe that high-performing and energy-efficient buildings are only the beginning of what you should expect from the space that you live, work, or learn. That your building minimizes energy use—saving you money and reducing the release of harmful greenhouse gasses—should be a given.

And at Healthy Buildings USA, it is. Our buildings take green building far beyond the casual use of the word. We use materials that are healthier for the planet, and healthier for you and your family—from the optimal use of natural light, to non-toxic materials that won’t off-gas to degrade air quality and aren’t produced using dangerous chemicals, to the elegant building systems that keep your home comfortable and toxin free, to the peace of mind that comes from knowing that you are doing what you can to contribute to a more sustainable planet.

What makes our buildings healthy?

  • Formaldehyde-free cabinets, interior cladding materials, insulation, and cements
  • Paints that have low or zero volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
  • No toxic polyvinyl chloride (PVC) in our doors or windows
  • A building envelope that is tight (to keep energy costs down) but effectively ventilated with natural air (to maintain toxin-free indoor air).

We keep building and operation costs down by focusing on the things nature gives us all in great abundance: light and heat from the sun, air, wind, and water. Healthy Buildings takes optimal advantage of all of these energies and resources to make health—in your family and on our planet a priority.
