For example, you can choose insulation materials that control unwanted air and moisture from leaking in through the building envelope. You can also ensure proper ventilation of gas appliances.
Give your home-health knowledge a check-up by comparing a high-performance home to a standard-built home.

- Little consideration to moisture management
- Controlling air leakage reduce pollutant infiltration
- Potential for pollutants to leak through
