Did you know the Environmental Protection Agency ranks indoor air quality one of the greatest but least recognized risks to public health?
Most existing, and even some new homes, contain materials that emit harmful chemical pollutants. At Schell Brothers, we take this risk very seriously and have included numerous features and construction techniques in our homes to ensure a healthy environment for our homeowners and their families.
‘Cold weather makes you sick’ is the number one health myth during the winter season.  But actually, germs are what make us sick and air filters remove these yucky germs from the air. That’s why at Schell Brothers we install advanced filters in our homes.
Pop Quiz! What does MERV stand for? Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value or MERV is a number from 1 to 16 that is relative to an air filters efficiency (the size of it’s hole in the filter that allows the air to pass through).
A typical residential filter is less than MERV 5 and unlike your golf score, the higher the score the better. We use MERV 14 air filters, which are rated high enough to be used in hospitals! So take a deep breath and relax. We’re committed to helping you and your family breathe easier.
 

Difference in the Details discusses the advanced building techniques Schell Brother uses in order to build our homes. Each post will feature a new element of our Schellter Advanced Building Science and how we use smart technology to provide you with the ultimate high performance home.
