Heartwood Builders Homes For Healthy Living

Healthy Homes

"Builder of the
American Lung Association's
Health House Model Home
in 2001"


In 2001, the American Lung Association's Health House Model Home was built by a Heartwood principal here in Cincinnati.

The American Lung Association, alarmed by an epidemic increase in the rates of asthma, and aware of the significant problem of indoor air quality, hired the best architects and building scientists in America to establish new home design criteria for building to 21st century lifestyles. Many of the design and building principles learned from that endeavor are incorporated into every Heartwood home.

Most of us spend more than 65% of our lives at home. Home is more than just a place to eat, sleep, work, and play. It’s the environment in which we raise our families. No place to skimp on health.

We are all aware of air pollution hazards from car exhaust and smokestack emissions, but the Environmental Protection Agency singles out poor indoor air quality as the number one environmental health concern facing Americans. Combined with the fact that we spend 90% of the day indoors and 65% of that time at home, it should come as no surprise that the incidence rate of asthma in children has increased an alarming 72% in the past 12 years.
