  • Candles

    They create a warm, cozy atmosphere — and present some hazards as well.
  • Radiant Heating

    Forced air heating is not the only option.
  • Loose Fill Insulation

    A form of unfaced insulation.
  • Geothermal Heat Pump

    A geothermal heat pump or ground source heat pump (GSHP) is a central heating and/or cooling system that pumps heat to or from the ground.
  • Basement Foundations

    Unfinished and uninsulated basements have a high potential for mold growth and other contamination problems, but can be healthy with proper planning.
  • Concrete

    Durable, versatile material made of four main ingredients: cement, aggregate, water, and admixtures.
  • Microbes

    The scientific name for what many people call germs or bugs. Microbes contribute to bad smelling bathrooms, but also function as natural cleaning agents.
  • Particle Board

    Made from small softwood particles that resemble coarse sawdust, and is usually held together with potent urea-formaldehyde (UF) glue.
  • Polyurethane and polyisocyanurate

    Polyurethane can be a flexible foam, as used in upholstery, or a rigid foam, as in insulation.
  • Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs)

    Chlorofluorocarbons define a category of chemicals which contain chlorine, fluorine and carbon.
  • Insulation

    A material that inhibits the flow of heat.
  • Nanotechnology

    Nanotechnology describes the creation and use of materials, devices and systems which control matter at the atomic or molecular level or “nanoscale”.
  • MTBE

    MTBE (methyl tertiary-butyl ether) is a chemical compound that is manufactured by the chemical reaction of methanol and isobutylene. MTBE is produced in very large quantities (over 200,000 barrels per day in the U.S. in 1999) and is almost exclusively used as a fuel additive in motor gasoline.
  • Foundation

    Supports a house and transmits its load to the ground or soil. It can have a significant impact on the health and integrity of a home.
  • Formaldehyde-Based Glues

    Common glues that hold together manufactured wood products such as plywood, oriented strand board and medium density fiber board.
  • Formaldehyde

    A common gas found in indoor air, often released from building materials, consisting of 1 carbon atom, 2 hydrogen atoms, and 1 oxygen atom.
  • Asbestos

    A wide range of building materials may contain asbestos, particularly where insulation or heat and fire resistance are essential to safe construction.
  • Combustion Gases

    Gases released during the combustion of heating and other fuels that can include carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, and nitrogen dioxide.
  • Masonry

    Building construction using materials such as concrete, tile and glass blocks, stone, brick and brick veneer.
  • Lead Paint

    If it’s in good shape, it just needs regular cleaning to avoid hazards.
