Adding outdoor air in hot humid climates causes moisture problems... right? Sometimes. It depends on the condition of the house before you start to add outdoor air. Contrary to popular belief, most houses in hot, humid climates are over ventilated due to duct leakage and induced air change from internal air pressure effects due to unbalanced air flow and door closure.

Did you know that indoor air can be more polluted than the air you breathe outside? Facts like that are why you need the "whole building system" concept.  It's an approach to housing that considers the effect of your home on your health and on the environment.

Poor indoor air quality can trigger asthma and allergies, and it can also be the cause of common ailments such as a stuffy nose, headaches, and fatigue. The irritants floating in your home's air may range from relatively minor ones, such as dust mites and animal hair, to the more serious problems of mold and gasses from building materials, furnishings, cleaning products, and heating systems.

A healthy home is one that helps you breathe easier and this has substantially been improved with the innovative and state-of-the-art LifeBreath Turbulent Flow Precipitation air cleaner. A newly developed technology that removes close to 100% of airborne particles from your home, day after day, year after year.

It's also well ventilated and furbished with materials chosen to reduce off-gassing. For example, the Stork Home starts with an airtight envelope and then uses an Energy Recovery Ventilation system to supply fresh air to all living spaces, that exhausts moist, stale air from the bathrooms and kitchen, benefiting people with asthma or other respiratory conditions. Technology that assures safer air quality with constant air temperature and quieter surroundings.  To get a better understanding of house ventilation, please read this:  Understanding Ventilation  As the complexity of attic and roof assemblies increases, the difficulty to construct vented assemblies also increases. The more complex a roof geometry,the easier it is to construct the assembly in an unvented manner. With complex roof designs, multiple dormers, valleys, hips, skylights combined with cathedral construction with interior soffits, trey ceilings and multiple service penetrations it is often not practical to construct a vented roof assembly with an airtight interior air barrier at the ceiling plane.
