A demo at the 2017 HPBZWhat It's About:

Learn how simple it is for the National Green Building Standard (NGBS) builder to also earn the Indoor airPLUS label with just a few practical techniques—many of which you’re probably doing already. A builder who is new to “green” can also use Indoor airPLUS as a smart stepping stone to participate in the NGBS. Jason will show you how many of these indoor air criteria were incorporated in the HPBZ Building Performance Lab and how you can take the next step in building and marketing healthier homes for your clients.
