Indoor Air Quality For A Healthier Home
When choosing a location for a home, we all understand the importance of good outdoor air quality. However, the majority of our lives are spent inside our homes. The EPA estimates that indoor environments are up to five times more polluted than outdoor environments. This is true for many traditionally built homes that use natural drafts for ventilation, trapping pollutants, allergens and toxins inside your home.
Ventilation & Dehumidification
Goldmark’s ENERGY STAR certified homes are built to have a sealed envelope. This dramatically limits the amount of unconditioned air in the home. Through controlled ventilation our homes regulate the intake of outside air, filtering and dehumidifying it before it enters the home.
Key benefits to this method of ventilation:
- Reduction of allergens
- Reduction of toxins
- Reduction of pollutants
- Mold prevention
High Performance Filtration
To provide the healthiest indoor environment for your family, we offer high performance air filtration systems in our homes. The American Standard AccuClean removes 99.96% of dust particles and allergens from the air in your house. This makes dusting virtually unnecessary and can reduce dust and allergy related sickness.
Low VOC Paint
Standard paints can release low level toxins into your home, even years after it was applied. By using low VOC paint on the interior walls of every Goldmark home, the threat of these airborne toxins is virtually eliminated.
Returns in Every Room
Indoor air quality is not just about breathing clean air, it’s also about comfort! Goldmark’s ENERGY STAR certified homes are built with an air return in every room. This eliminates hot spots, drafts and creates a balanced climate throughout your home. Now your third floor office will be just as comfortable as your living room and master suite!

With the ENERGY STAR label on your new home, you can be confident that it will deliver. When ENERGY STAR requirements are applied to new home construction, an integrated approach to design combined with tried-and-true best building practices adds up to a durable, comfortable home with reduced utility and maintenance costs. Goldmark’s ENERGY STAR certified homes have undergone more inspections and testing than typical homes to ensure that your new home was built to higher standards.
