PR Newswire just published some shocking insights backed by the EPA about residential new construction, “Four in 10 Custom Homes in the U.S. Are Built with Improper HVAC Systems.” Read the full article here.


When building a new home, there are a lot of different priorities for homeowners to consider: appliances, paint colors, countertops, cabinets, plumbing, more. Unfortunately, recent studies show the HVAC system does not get the attention it deserves.


"The environmental system for your home is critical to your family's health, comfort, safety and energy costs," says Neal Kerney, VP of Marketing for Scientific Environmental Design. "But there is a high probability your beautiful new home will not be comfortable, could cause health problems and will cost you a lot more to heat and cool than it should." At Comfort Institute, we totally agree!


The HVAC systems in new construction homes need to be higher priorities. Your health and wallet depend on it.
