Healthier indoor environment

Healthier Indoor Environments Support Wellness
We believe wellness starts at home, and it’s in our homes where we can make the biggest changes to improve our 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 in every room through every season. We also feature smartphone-controllable ecobee3 lite smart thermostats, (is ecobee3 trademarked?) which can learn homeowner patterns and help save money on 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 Kwikset® interior door hardware with Microban® 24/7 antimicrobial protection that inhibits the growth of microbes, such as bacteria, mold and mildew, on product surfaces. Additional upgrades like Moen touchless faucets as well as voice-activated light switches and Whirlpool® smart appliances further help reduce the spread of germs.

Healthier interiors
KB Home uses environmentally conscious products like Shaw® flooring, Emser tile, Sherwin-Williams® paint and quality cabinetry that have fewer harsh chemicals. We frequently review Health Product Declaration (HPD) or similar documentation before selecting our materials.
