Tempe-based homebuilder continues to lead the industry in home indoor air quality
TEMPE, Ariz. – For the sixth consecutive year, Fulton Homes has been recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The Tempe-based homebuilder was recently awarded the EPA’s 2020 Indoor airPLUS Leader Award for going above and beyond to minimize exposure to airborne pollutants and increase overall indoor air quality in homes.
“Fulton Homes is honored to be recognized as a 2020 Indoor airPLUS Leader Award winner for a sixth straight time,” said Dennis Webb, vice president of Fulton Homes. “In addition to educating the public on the importance of indoor air quality, we strive towards a healthier standard, enveloping quality with care in efficient, healthy home building.”
Since 2014 when Fulton Homes first joined the EPA’s program, approximately 3,700 homes have been built across the Valley with the Indoor airPLUS label, and 100 percent of new construction is built to the Indoor airPLUS standards creating benefits for homebuyers such as education, moisture control, radon control, pest management, and higher efficiency for heating, ventilation and air conditioning.
Indoor airPLUS was created on the foundation of the EPA’s ENERGY STAR Certified Homes Program in 2010. The program recognizes partners who build and verify homes that feature improved indoor air quality with the Indoor airPLUS label. For 2020, the EPA recognized 15 Indoor airPLUS leaders for promoting the benefits of enhanced indoor air quality protections and educating consumers on the value of safer, healthier and more comfortable homes.
