Reduce the stress on your family’s respiratory and immune systems with a well ventilated home – free from harmful chemicals. All Excel homes include a Heat Recovery Ventilator that draws in clean, fresh outdoor air and exhausts humid, stale and polluted air. The building materials we use, including our paints, adhesives and insulation, contain low-to-zero formaldehyde and VOC content.
To improve air quality even further, Excel installs a Heat Recovery Ventilator* (HRV) in every home we build. An HRV draws in clean, fresh outdoor air and exhausts humid, stale and polluted air. This helps eliminate dust, humidity and invisible pollutants found in common household substances, which can help prevent some chronic respiratory illnesses. By removing excess humidity from your home you can also help reduce any potential moisture related structural damage.
