  • ICF or Insulating Concrete Form

    Insulating Concrete Forms or ICFs are popular in green building projects because of their thermal performance, durability, non-outgassing materials, and other reasons.
  • Infrared Thermography

    Thermographic inspection measures surface temperatures by using infrared video and still cameras. These tools see infrared light (light that is in the heat spectrum) to detect temperature variations of the building's "skin", showing warmer areas in lighter colors and cooler areas in darker colors.
  • Insulation

    A material that inhibits the flow of heat.
  • LEED

    The U.S. Green Building Council Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System™ is a nationally accepted benchmark.
  • Masonry

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

    A home that is built in a factory in sections, transported to a site, lifted from the transport by crane, and rested on a prebuilt foundation.
  • On-Purpose Ventilation

    Purposeful and directed air movement into and out of a building.
  • Organic Chemical, Compound

    Any substance that has carbon molecules in its structure.
  • Oriented Strand board (OSB)

    As with construction-grade plywood, it can often be used in a healthy house if it is well-separated from the living space.
  • Passive Solar

    A home-energy alternative or addition to gas and utility electric.
  • R-value

    How effective is your insulation?
  • Range fan

    The hood has a removable filter that’s essential for reducing airborne grease.
  • Recycling Symbol, Plastic

    How to “read” plastic containers for recycling.
  • Sheathing

    Sheathing adds strength and wind resistance to house walls, and is now made in a variety of materials.
  • Sick Building Syndrome

    The term "sick building syndrome" (SBS) is used to describe situations in which building occupants experience acute health and comfort effects, but no specific illness or cause can be identified.
  • SIP or Structural Insulated Panel

    Structural insulated panels (SIPs) are high performance building panels used in floors, walls, and roofs for residential and light commercial buildings.
  • Spray-On Insulation

    Insulation products that start out as a liquid, but end up as a solid.
  • Terpene

    Terpenes are hydrocarbons - organic compounds made up of hydrogen and carbon - mainly from plants, and the main constituent of essential oils.
  • Thermographic Inspection

    Thermographic inspection measures surface temperatures using infrared light (light that is in the heat spectrum) to detect temperature variations of the building's "skin", showing warmer areas in lighter colors and cooler areas in darker colors.
  • Ventilation

    The process of supplying air to, or removing air from, a house, most often with a fan.
