SWA Awarded US EPA’s Indoor airPLUS Leader Award for Ninth Consecutive Year
Steven Winter Associates, Inc. (SWA) has been recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as a recipient of the 2020 Indoor airPLUS Leader Award. This annual award recognizes market leading homebuilders and raters who promote safer, healthier, and more comfortable indoor environments by participating in this home labeling program, utilizing the Indoor airPLUS brand in their marketing, and educating the general public about the enhanced indoor air quality protections they offer to new home buyers.
“This year, Americans across the country have been reminded about the importance of the indoor air quality in their homes. These 15 Indoor airPLUS Leader Award Winners are at the national forefront of building and verifying homes that provide unparalleled indoor air quality, energy efficiency, comfort, durability, and peace of mind,” said David Rowson, Director of EPA’s Indoor Environments Division. “On behalf of EPA and the Indoor airPLUS team, I would like to congratulate our 2020 Indoor airPLUS Leader Award Winners on their incredible work and thank them for building a healthier America.”
“SWA is honored to be recognized as a 2020 Indoor airPLUS Leader Award Winner for the ninth consecutive year” said SWA’s Karla Butterfield. “Since 2012, we have verified over 800 Indoor airPLUS qualified homes throughout New England, New Jersey, New York and the DC area. We are very excited about the evolution of the Indoor airPLUS program, especially the future inclusion of multifamily buildings of any height! We are also proud to work with the EPA’s talented team to continue to address health and well-being in residential buildings.”
Indoor airPLUS was created on the foundation of EPA’s ENERGY STAR Certified Homes Program and encourages builders and raters to go further with construction practices to help minimize exposure to airborne pollutants and contaminants. Homes that earn this label offer superior comfort, durability, indoor air quality, and peace of mind for their home buyers.
