In the interest of safeguarding your health and in reducing of the ecological footprint of your new evoDOMUS home, we make every effort to create a safe environment in which to live, work and play. Our resource-saving off-site production process enables us to protect the materials and components from outdoor precipitation which would otherwise lead to mold, mildew, rust, and sun damage.
Recognizing the importance of fresh air and abundant daylight, we take the principles of passive design to heart, utilizing proper solar orientation and architectural design to maximize natural light and air flow and to create open, airy living spaces all of which improve the owner’s quality of life.
Because evoDOMUS homes are built to be extremely air tight to prevent air loss, they are equipped with either an energy recovery or heat recovery ventilation system to provide a continuous flow of fresh, filtered air. Additionally, our walls are designed to prevent moisture accumulation and mold. We usually heat and cool our homes using air source heat pumps (Mini-Split units). Geothermal heat pumps are an option for larger homes in cold climate zones.
We use low or no VOC paints and finishes in our homes and prefer natural materials. Our material selections consist predominantly of products with high-recycle content, as well as FSC certified woods and bamboo. Although we can provide carpeting on request, evoDOMUS recommends the use of hard floor surfaces to protect against allergens and molds that thrive in carpeting, negatively affecting your health.
Finally, especially noticeable in urban settings, due to our thick, well-insulated walls, high-performance windows and no noisy forced-air furnace, evoDOMUS homes provide a peaceful and tranquil refuge from a hectic world.
