Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)

With today’s building standards the indoor air quality can be worse than the outdoor air quality.  And although here at Berkeley Little House we use low VOC products, solid wood and plywood cabinets and no particle or composite woods throughout, we are still concerned about indoor air quality.  Because of this, every ADU that we build has a whole house air exchange unit.  Constantly bringing fresh air in and exhausting stale air out. To do this we utilize the latest ERV (energy recovery ventilation) units which not only the exchanges indoor temperature with the fresh air coming in, but the humidity as well – reducing heating a cooling costs throughout the year.  This allows the system to be very efficient and controlled.  We also include an inline MERV 13 air filter so you can rest at ease knowing the air coming in is fresh and clean.
