What is it like to live in a Target Zero Home?
Constantly clean air creating an amazing indoor air quality
The whole house ventilation system with heat recovery (HRV) provides constant ventilation to all rooms, much superior to opening windows. The air is never stale. Even coming home from a longer vacation feels like a breath of fresh air. This trend setting technology replaces your entire indoor air volume 9 times a day and cleans the air for you in that process down to Hepa filter quality if desired. High quality filters leave pollen, pollutants and bugs outside. Odors from kitchens and bathrooms are quickly eliminated providing you with an unsurpassed air quality. The same system can help to cool your home naturally in the summer time. Once experienced, you can never live without it again.

Finishes that do more than just look pretty
You will surround yourself with state of the art, high quality building components, and non toxic finishes are our standard. Earth based materials provide healthful negative ions and perfectly balance the humidity in your living spaces.
Interior earthen walls and clay based finishes are not just aesthetically pleasing but they help you to stay well and healthy. If your interior environment is made of unsealed clay plasters they are able to absorb and release huge amounts of humidity out of the indoor air. The humidity is created by normal living activities like cooking, taking showers and breathing. As humidity levels rise your walls will absorb those, as they drop your walls will release them acting like a natural humidity balancing system.
During this hydration process your earthen walls produce a self- generated negative charge which is exactly what you want. The negatively charged particles in the air will steep your interior space with healthy negative ions. They help your body to absorb and utilize oxygen, making you feel more invigorated and giving you more energy .
Negative ions will also help you to neutralize the electromagnetic effects of your computers, appliances and plastics. The static charge on your walls will be eliminated leaving your walls clean and free of dust.
