At Benton Green Energy, we are proud members of the industry-standard Indoor airPLUS program for safe indoor air.

Building on the EPA ENERGY STAR requirements, this program outlines construction practices and product specifications that minimize dangers like pollutants and unwanted contaminants in indoor air. By providing comprehensive IAQ protections for new homes, Indoor airPLUS is invaluable for indoor air safety.

Why Should You Be Concerned?
There are more pollutants in your home than you may realize! Unfortunately, many homeowners don’t realize the number of detrimental pollutants that have infiltrated their homes. Things like mold, dust, pollen, bugs, and other contaminants can leak into the home and go largely unnoticed. If your combustion systems are not properly sealed or insulated, things like chimney or furnace gases may also be circulating around your home.
That’s where we come in.

I first ran into Dean at a customer house several years ago. He was doing an energy audit where I was upgrading the HVAC system. Dean had recommended some upgrades to the home which greatly reduced the customer’s utility bill.
