Event Description

Learn about the indoor air quality requirements of two popular green-building certification programs: Indoor airPLUS and Green Built Homes.

This course covers the indoor air quality requirements of two popular green building certification programs: EPA's Indoor airPLUS and Green Built Homes.

Indoor airPLUS is an add-on certification that brings indoor air quality requirements to the popular Energy Star New Homes program. Green Built Homes is a comprehensive green building program that involves prerequisites and an optional points system, of which indoor air quality is an important part.

The course will discuss the requirements of both programs, and strategies for meeting them. These include important topics such as radon, combustion safety, moisture management, low-emitting materials, and ventilation.

Students will leave the class with the following skills:

  • Know what the Indoor airPLUS program is and how it’s administered
  • Understand the importance of whole house ventilation
  • Be able to identify common certification programs for low-emitting materials
  • Know what the Green Built Homes program is and how its scoring system works
  • Understand where to go for resources and checklists for both programs
