As a result, many residential new construction companies are beginning to focus on offering indoor air quality upgrades to their customers.

There are a variety of ways to improve and grow profits from IAQ, such as using green building materials, installing ventilation systems, and using air purifiers. By incorporating these upgrades into their homes, construction companies can not only improve the health of their customers but also boost their bottom line. In today’s market, there is a growing demand for homes that are both safe and healthy. By offering indoor air quality upgrades, residential new construction companies can tap into this demand and profitable growth.

  • Increase the value of your homes and attract more buyers
  • Improve indoor air quality for the safety and health of your customers

For commercial new construction companies, this presents both challenges and opportunities. On the one hand, IAQ upgrades can add significant costs to a project. On the other hand, they also offer an opportunity to differentiate your company from the competition and show a commitment to human health.

Why Indoor Air Quality Must Be Part of the Energy Efficiency Discussion

For too long, indoor air quality has been sacrificed in the name of energy efficiency. It’s time for a change. Whole-building solutions exist that can satisfy both objectives, and it’s time to bring indoor air quality back into the conversation about energy efficiency. The fact is, that poor IAQ can have serious consequences for human health, including respiratory problems, headaches, and fatigue. In some cases, it can even lead to serious illness. Meanwhile, energy efficiency is becoming increasingly important as we seek to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels and minimize our impact on the environment.

There are a number of ways to improve indoor air quality. For example, selecting building materials that emit fewer pollutants is one way to achieve this. Likewise, installing mechanical ventilation systems that remove stale air from the space also helps. By incorporating these strategies into the design of new buildings and retrofitting existing structures, we can improve indoor air quality without sacrificing energy efficiency.

  • Improve indoor air quality without sacrificing energy efficiency
  • Protect occupants from harmful pollutants and allergens
  • Increase comfort and productivity in buildings

Long Term IAQ Profit for Construction Companies

The quality of indoor air has become a growing concern in recent years. Studies have shown that the air inside our homes and office buildings can be more polluted than the air outside. This is due to a variety of factors, including off-gassing from building materials, cleaning products, and furniture. Mold and dust contamination is due to poor ventilation. Combine that with an increasing number of people suffer from allergies, asthma, and other respiratory problems.

There is a growing movement to improve indoor air quality, and new construction companies would be wise to take note. Government regulations are becoming stricter. Buyers are increasingly interested in purchasing homes and office spaces that have been designed with healthy indoor air in mind. As the demand for these types of buildings grows, those companies that are prepared to meet this need will be well-positioned for success in the years to come. And, the profits from IAQ are only going to grow from here.
