Several Habitat for Humanity partners have enjoyed much success with building Indoor airPLUS qualified homes. While they each approach home building a little differently, they all have recognized that the families who live in these homes will benefit from improved indoor air quality. The families who live in Indoor airPLUS qualified homes report fewer negative health effects, including asthma episodes.
