Start Your Year Off With A Healthy Home

healthy homeA new year usually brings resolutions to be healthier, so why not live in a home that is healthier too? At Ivey Homes we take several measures to make sure we are providing you a home that is healthier.

  • We are the only 100% ENERGY STAR Certified builder in the CSRA area. This means the home is healthier – for you and the environment, more cost-efficient to operate, and provides comfort features to make your busy life easier.
  • We use low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) paint, carpet and hardwood floor glue. VOCs react with other elements to produce ozone, which causes air pollution and a host of health issues. Air barriers and air sealing isolate living areas from fumes, contaminants or allergens that might come through the attic or walls.
  • We cut back on air leakage. Air leakage is the single biggest loss of energy in a home. Ivey homes include extensive air barriers to seal gaps and block random air movement through the new home. Air sealing controls moisture, prevents dirt and pollen from leaking inside the home, and reduces air flow throughout the home, thereby increasing indoor air quality and energy efficiency.
  • Our homes have never been lived in before. Meaning nobody else’s dirt, germs, hair, and toenails are in the carpet.
