Healthier indoor environment

Healthier indoor air environments support wellness

We believe that wellness starts at home, and that’s where we can make meaningful changes to improve overall well-being.

Every KB home is designed and built with quality construction techniques and features that are guided by the EPA’s ENERGY STAR and Indoor airPLUS standards to support wellness and deliver a broad set of health-related benefits compared to homes without these features, including:

Enhanced indoor air quality

  • Every KB home incorporates high-performance ventilation that regularly introduces fresh outdoor air and helps to reduce indoor air pollutants.
  • MERV 13 rated filters capture 90% of airborne particles as small as 1.0 micron and are designed to remove dust, pollen, mold and certain bacteria and viruses for enhanced indoor air quality.

Elevated level of comfort

  • All KB homes include a high-efficiency heating and cooling system designed to provide better comfort through every season.
  • We also feature smart thermostats, which can learn homeowner patterns and help reduce electric bills each year without impacting comfort.

Enhanced pollutant and moisture control

  • Every KB home is built with comprehensive air sealing to help reduce drafts, moisture, dust and pollen.

Reduced spread of germs

  • KB homes feature interior door hardware with antimicrobial protection that inhibits the growth of microbes, such as bacteria, mold and mildew, on product surfaces.
  • Additional upgrades like touchless faucets, voice-activated light switches and smart appliances help to further reduce the spread of germs.
