ALA Health House

A single-family home near the Twin Cities in Minnesota is the first to be constructed according to the American Lung Association’s recently revised

Health House® guidelines. The home, completed in September and open for tours, was designed with special attention to ventilation, air filtration, and moisture control. A second Health House, in St. Paul, Minnesota, is set to open in February 2003. The Health House program strives to educate the public about building, renovating, and maintaining homes for energy efficiency, durability, and occupant health.
